|October 26, 2017 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced new purpose-built platforms and services capabilities to help companies simplify the adoption of Artificial Intelligence, with an initial focus on deep learning.

Deep learning is typically implemented for challenging tasks such as image and facial recognition, image classification and voice recognition. To take advantage of deep learning, enterprises need a high performance compute infrastructure to build and train learning models that can manage large volumes of data to recognize patterns in audio, images, videos, text and sensor data.

Many organizations lack several integral requirements to implement deep learning, including expertise and resources; sophisticated and tailored hardware and software infrastructure; and the integration capabilities required to assimilate different pieces of hardware and software to scale AI systems.

To help customers overcome these challenges and realize the potential of AI, HPE is announcing the following offerings:

HPE’s Rapid Software Development for AI: HPE introduced an integrated hardware and software solution, purpose-built for high performance computing and deep learning applications. Based on the HPE Apollo 6500 system in collaboration with Bright Computing to enable rapid deep learning application development, this solution includes pre-configured deep learning software frameworks, libraries, automated software updates and cluster management optimized for deep learning.

HPE Deep Learning Cookbook: Built by the AI Research team at Hewlett Packard Labs, the deep learning cookbook is a set of tools to guide customers in selecting the best hardware and software environment for different deep learning tasks. These tools help enterprises estimate performance of various hardware platforms, characterize the most popular deep learning frameworks, and select the ideal hardware and software stacks to fit their individual needs. The Deep Learning Cookbook can also be used to validate the performance and tune the configuration of already purchased hardware and software stacks.

HPE AI Innovation Centers located in Houston, Palo Alto, and Grenoble will serve as a platform for research collaboration between universities, enterprises on the cutting edge of AI research and HPE researchers. The centers, will give researchers for academia and enterprises access to infrastructure and tools to continue research initiatives.

The HPE CoEs in Houston, Palo Alto, Tokyo, Bangalore, and Grenoble will offer select customers access to the latest technology and expertise including the latest NVIDIA GPUs on HPE systems.

“Each enterprise has unique needs that require a distinct approach to get started, scale and optimize its infrastructure for deep learning. At HPE, we aim to make AI real for our customers no matter where they are in their journeys with our industry-leading infrastructure portfolio, AI expertise, world-class research and ecosystem of partners,” said Pankaj Goyal, vice president, Artificial Intelligence Business, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

HPE also offers customers a flexible consumption services for HPE infrastructure, which avoids over-provisioning, increases cost savings and scales up and down as needed to accommodate the needs of deep learning deployments.
