Tile: A New Language for Machine Learning — Nov 10, 2017
With the release of the PlaidML machine learning framework, Vertex.AI is helping make accelerated machine learning on every platform a reality. Historically the key obstacle to acceleration on a wide range of platforms has been software support, that support being constrained by the need for laborious implementation of libraries of hand-crafted software “kernels” for each processor. PlaidML takes a different approach, using a tensor manipulation language we’ve developed called Tile to automatically generate the kernels, making it many times easier easier to add support for GPUs and new types of processors. Our benchmarks show that this approach is competitive with existing frameworks on NVIDIA GPUs, while also extending compatibility to other common GPUs such as those from AMD and Intel.
Last week we announced the release of PlaidML, an open source software framework designed to enable deep learning on every device. Our goal with PlaidML is to make deep learning accessible by supporting the most popular hardware and software already in the hands of developers, researchers, and students. Last week's release supported Python 2.7 on Linux. We received immediate requests for Mac and Python 3, today we're pleased to announce preliminary support for both.
We’re pleased to announce the next step towards deep learning for every device and platform. Today Vertex.AI is releasing PlaidML, our open source portable deep learning engine. Our mission is to make deep learning accessible to every person on every device, and we’re building PlaidML to help make that a reality. We’re starting by supporting the most popular hardware and software already in the hands of developers, researchers, and students. The initial version of PlaidML runs on most existing PC hardware with OpenCL-capable GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel. Additionally, we’re including support for running the widely popular Keras framework on top of Plaid to allow existing code and tutorials to run unchanged.
Our overarching goal is to bring intelligence to more devices. Today, deep learning research is showing new and powerful accuracy in areas like image understanding, speech recognition, language translation, and more. At the same time, to get the necessary computations running on most chips requires rare expertise and substantial software development effort. We are addressing that problem at two layers: First by making it possible with Vantage to run deep neural nets on a wide variety of chips, and second by building on top of that our Vision ready-to-use toolbox of pre-packaged visual intelligence capabilities. We support each with hands-on support and training to ensure your challenge is solved.
