Title:Speed up DNN Model Training: An Industrial Perspective
Date: December 14, 2020 (Monday)
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Venue: ZOOM (https://cuhk.zoom.us/j/92074008389)
Speaker: Mr. Mike Hong
CTO of BirenTech

Abstract:

Training large DNN models is compute-intensive, often taking days, weeks or even months to complete. Therefore, how to speed it up has attracted lots of attention from both academia and industry. In this talk, we shall cover a number of accelerated DNN training techniques from an industrial perspective, including various optimizers, large batch training, distributed computation and all-reduce network topology.
