We''ll introduce deep learning infrastructure for building and maintaining autonomous vehicles, including techniques for managing the lifecycle of deep learning models, from definition, training and deployment to reloading and life-long learning. DNN autocurates and pre-labels data in the loop. Given data, it finds the best run-time optimized deep learning models. Training scales with data size beyond multi-nodes. With these methodologies, one takes only data from the application and feeds DL predictors to it. This infrastructure is divided into multiple tiers and is modular, with each of the modules containerized to lower infrastructures like GPU-based cloud infrastructure.
Smart cities are getting a lot of attention and both academia and industry are focusing and investing in next-generation technologies for making this as a reality. We'll present a case study on how GPU-based IT infrastructure can enable different components and use-cases of a smart city platform. Smart cities IT infrastructure will need massive computational power and visualization of extremely rich visual contents within a given energy budget. GPU-accelerated data centers can provide a unified IT infrastructure and software platform to achieve that. This case study has taken Singapore's smart nation initiative as a reference and will also present different initiatives and projects using the GPU platform.
