IBM has added Google’s TensorFlow machine learning software library to its PowerAI distribution. PowerAI is IBM’s software distribution for its S822LC for High Performance Computing platform, which is based on servers equipped with Power8 CPUs and NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs. When launched at SC16, PowerAI came with a variety of open source machine learning frameworks, including Theano, Torch, and Caffe, which are among the most widely used in the AI community. The implementations provided in PowerAI are able to take advantage of the S822LC hardware – in particular NVIDIA’s deeplearning-optimized P100 GPUs.
