Modern deep learning applications require increasingly more compute to train state-of-the-art models.
Training deep neural networks on large datasets can often be accelerated by using multiple compute nodes.
Deep reinforcement learning (RL) has made groundbreaking advancements in robotics, data center management and other applications.
Driven by the tremendous effort in researching novel deep learning (DL) algorithms, the training cost of developing new models increases staggeringly in recent years.
Our technique exploits the observation that, because DNN training consists of repetitive compute steps, predicting the execution time of a single iteration is usually enough to characterize the performance of an entire training process.
We demonstrate that FPRaker can be used to compose an accelerator for training and that it can improve performance and energy efficiency compared to using conventional floating-point units under ISO-compute area constraints.
TensorDash is a hardware level technique for enabling data-parallel MAC units to take advantage of sparsity in their input operand streams.
Training a state-of-the-art deep neural network (DNN) is a computationally-expensive and time-consuming process, which incentivizes deep learning developers to debug their DNNs for computational performance.
As a result, to train these models within a reasonable time, machine learning (ML) programmers often require advanced hardware setups such as the premium GPU-enabled NVIDIA DGX workstations or specialized accelerators such as Google's TPU Pods.

Machine learning (ML) needs industry-standard performance benchmarks to support design and competitive evaluation of the many emerging software and hardware solutions for ML.
In an era when the performance of a single compute device plateaus, software must be designed to scale on massively parallel systems for better runtime performance.

Machine learning (ML) techniques are enjoying rapidly increasing adoption.
It dynamically optimizes for both the high bandwidth and limited capacity of HBM, and the limited bandwidth and high capacity of standard DRAM.
For each feature map recomputation to be effective and efficient, its effect on (1) the total memory footprint, and (2) the total execution time has to be carefully estimated.
Our primary goal in this work is to break this myopic view by (i) proposing a new benchmark for DNN training, called TBD (TBD is short for Training Benchmark for DNNs), that uses a representative set of DNN models that cover a wide range of machine learning applications: image classification, machine translation, speech recognition, object detection, adversarial networks, reinforcement learning, and (ii) by performing an extensive performance analysis of training these different applications on three major deep learning frameworks (TensorFlow, MXNet, CNTK) across different hardware configurations (single-GPU, multi-GPU, and multi-machine).
