New Technique Cuts AI Training Time By More Than 60 Percent
North Carolina State University researchers have developed a technique that reduces training time for deep learning networks by more than 60 percent without sacrificing accuracy, accelerating the development of new artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
"Deep learning networks are at the heart of AI applications used in everything from self-driving cars to computer vision technologies," says Xipeng Shen, a professor of computer science at NC State and co-author of a paper on the work.
"One of the biggest challenges facing the development of new AI tools is the amount of time and computing power it takes to train deep learning networks to identify and respond to the data patterns that are relevant to their applications. We've come up with a way to expedite that process, which we call Adaptive Deep Reuse. We have demonstrated that it can reduce training times by up to 69 percent without accuracy loss."READ MORE ON: TECH XPLORE
