CUDA Spotlight: GPU-Accelerated Deep Neural Networks

Originally published at:

This week’s Spotlight is on Dr. Dan Ciresan, a senior researcher at IDSIA in Switzerland and a pioneer in using CUDA for Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). His methods have won international competitions on topics such as classifying traffic signs and recognizing handwritten Chinese characters. Dan presented a session on Deep Neural Networks for Visual Pattern Recognition at GTC…

How do you start implementing a Neural Network with CUDA? What about OpenCL ?

Typically you use a deep learning framework, rather than developing in CUDA or OpenCL directly. I suggest you check out the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute courses, and look at the deep learning posts here:
