Abstract:

Based on a comprehensive performance study of Watson workloads, we'll deep dive into optimizing critical retrieve and rank functions using GPU acceleration. The performance of cognitive applications like answering natural language questions heavily depends on quickly selecting the relevant documents needed to generate a correct answer. While analyzing the question to determine appropriate search terms, weights, and relationships is relatively quick, retrieving and ranking a relevant subset from millions of documents is a time-consuming task. Only after completing it can any advanced natural language processing algorithms be effective.
