Mixed-Precision Training of Deep Neural Networks

Originally published at: Mixed-Precision Training of Deep Neural Networks | NVIDIA Technical Blog

Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) have lead to breakthroughs in a number of areas, including image processing and understanding, language modeling, language translation, speech processing, game playing, and many others. DNN complexity has been increasing to achieve these results, which in turn has increased the computational resources required to train these networks. Mixed-precision training lowers the…
