TensorFlow Gains Hardware Support

TensorFlow Gains Hardware Support

There are a number of machine learning (ML) architectures that utilize deep neural networks (DNNs), including AlexNet, VGGNet, GoogLeNet, Inception, ResNet, FCN, and U-Net. These in turn run on frameworks like Berkley’s Caffe, Google’s TensorFlow, Torch, Microsoft’s Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK), and Apache’s mxnet. Of course, support for these frameworks on specific hardware is required to actually run the ML applications. Each framework has advantages and disadvantages. For example, Caffe is an easy platform to start with, especially since ones of its popular uses is image recognition. It is also fast and often the first framework supported by hardware. TensorFlow tends to be easier to deploy with simpler model definitions, as well as better support or GPUs. There are also accelerators specifically designed for TensorFlow like Google’s TensorFlow Processing Unit (TPU). It als...
