DC7243 - Accelerated Deep Learning Advances in HPC Recent advances in the deployment of deep learning recurrent nets have been demonstrated in scaling studies of Princeton's new Deep Learning Code -- "FRNN (Fusion Recurrent Neural Net) Code on modern GPU systems. This is a "big-data" project in that it has access to the huge EUROFUSION/JET disruption data base of over a half-petabyte to drive these studies. FRNN implements a distributed data parallel synchronous stochastic gradient approach with TensorFlow and Theano libraries at the backend and MPI for communication. This deep learning software has recently demonstrated excellent scaling up to 6,000 GPUs on Titan at Oak Ridge National Lab. The associated accomplishments exhibit clear progress toward the goal of establishing the practical feasibility of using leadership-class supercomputers to greatly enhance training of neural nets for transformational impact on key discovery science application domains such as fusion energy science. Powerful systems expected to be engaged for near-future deployment of this deep learning software include: (1) NVIDIA's SATURN V – featuring its nearly 1,000 Pascal P100 GPUs; (2) Switzerland's Piz Daint Cray XC50 system with 4,500 P100 GPUs; (3) Japan's Tsubame 3 system with 3,000 P100 GPUs; (4) and OLCF's Summit-Dev system. Summarily, deep learning software trained on large scientific datasets hold exciting promise for delivering much-needed predictive tools capable of accelerating knowledge discovery. The associated creative methods being developed – including a new half-precision capability -- also has significant potential for cross-cutting benefit to a number of important application areas in science and industry. 25 Minute Talk William Tang - Professor, Princeton University

DC7200 - Adapting Deep Learning to New Data Using ORNL's Titan Supercomputer There has been a surge of success in using deep learning as it has provided a new state of the art for a variety of domains. While these models learn their parameters through data-driven methods, model selection through hyper-parameter choices remains a tedious and highly intuition-driven task. We've developed two approaches to address this problem. Multi-node evolutionary neural networks for deep learning (MENNDL) is an evolutionary approach to performing this search. MENNDL is capable of evolving not only the numeric hyper-parameters, but is also capable of evolving the arrangement of layers within the network. The second approach is implemented using Apache Spark at scale on Titan. The technique we present is an improvement over hyper-parameter sweeps because we don't require assumptions about independence of parameters and is more computationally feasible than grid-search. 25 Minute Talk Travis Johnston - Postdoctoral Research Associate, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

While there are several existing formats for sparse data representations, most of these are restricted to static datasets. We'll show a new data structure called Hornet for dynamic graphs and matrices that scales to extremely large graphs. Hornet can be used for both static and dynamic graph-based problems. 25 Minute Talk Oded Green - Research Scientist, Georgia Tech

DC7214 - Counting Passenger Vehicles Using Satellite Imagery Learn the challenges surmounted in developing a vehicle counting algorithm from 30-centimeter satellite imagery. Counting cars from 30-cm resolution imagery is a much more challenging problem than counting cars from even higher resolution aerial (drone) imagery with only a few centimeters. And, since vehicles are composed of both metal and glass, and since light easily passes through glass, the vehicles displayed in satellite imagery are disjointed pixel blobs (that is, a mixture of dark and bright pixels). We'll discuss the challenges faced in developing a detection and counting deep learning algorithm that leverages NVIDIA's GPU capabilities, and how we arrived at a viable solution that is composed of fusing two convolutional neural networks for initially performing segmentation for vehicle detection followed by a more refined localization of the vehicles within each detected vehicle segment using morphological operations, non-maximum suppression, and connected components. 25 Minute Talk Kevin Green - Machine Learning and Computer Vision Scientist, DigitalGlobe Inc.

The problem is that deep learning, which has been boosting modern AI, is computationally expensive. It's even more challenging when it comes to live stream video. That's why we're building the NVIDIA DeepStream SDK, which simplifies development of high-performance video analytics applications powered by deep learning. It's built on top of the NVIDIA Video SDK, which can leverage the GPU's hardware encoding and decoding horsepower, and on top of NVIDIA TensorRT, which accelerates deep neural network's inferencing. We have seen successful large-scale deployment of such intelligent video analytics systems, and we see this as an unstoppable trend. 50 Minute Talk Jeremy Furtek - Senior Developer Technology Engineer, NVIDIA

DC7231 - Distributed GPU-Enabled TensorFlow Applications at Scale We'll dive deep into large-scale GPU-enabled distributed computing with TensorFlow on an on-premises cluster or the cloud. Since the introduction of distributed TensorFlow, many solutions have been used in an attempt to streamline the cumbersome process of application development and deployment. Having encountered these issues in our own GPU cluster, we present our system architecture and scheduling framework that addresses GPU allocation, containerization, deployment, and scheduling of GPU-enabled TensorFlow applications on a cluster. We will be demonstrating our current use cases that include large-scale distributed training of TensorFlow models and model hyperparameter optimization. 50 Minute Talk Keegan Hines - Machine Learning Engineer, Capital One Financial
