Deep Learning is a Highly Parallelizable Task: Overview on Distributed Deep Learning

Abstract:

[nur in Englisch verfügbar]

This presentation is based on the paper »Demystifying Parallel and Distributed Deep Learning: An In-Depth Concurrency Analysis« and gives an overview on distributed training of deep neural networks.

Citation from the paper: The world of deep learning is brimming with concurrency. Nearly every aspect of training, from the computation of a convolution to the meta-optimization of DNN architectures, is inherently parallel. Even if an aspect is sequential, its consistency requirements can be reduced, due to the robustness of nonlinear optimization, to increase concurrency while still attaining reasonable accuracy, if not better.

The seminar »KL-Regelungstechnik« (Kaiserslautern – Control Theory and Control Engineering) is organized by our department as well as several research groups of the TU Kaiserslautern:

  • Technomathematics (Dep. of Mathematics)
  • Mechatronics in Mechenical and Automotive Engineering (Dep. of Mechanical and Process Engineering)
  • Automation Control (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Electromobility (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

The seminar takes place at the ITWM every 1st Tuesday of a month (besides holidays and summer break). Aims are broadening of experiences and exchange of scientific views – also beyond the organizing groups.

Typical subjects of talks are:

  • ongoing or recently finished graduations and doctoral theses
  • current research and projects

The topics vary from mathematical methods to technical implementations. Usually, the talks present research results. However, some show open issues for brainstorming and inputs from the audience.
