Nvidia Speeds Ups the Hardware Game for #MT with a 16-GPU DGX-2 Server

Nvidia Speeds Ups the Hardware Game for #MT with a 16-GPU DGX-2 Server | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

The DGX-2 is a monster. Nvidia has announced that with DGX-2 it has taken the training time of FAIRSeq, a neural machine translation model, from 10 days (on the V100-equipped DGX-1) down to 1.5 days, a 10x improvement in six months. Nvidia claims that it would take an equivalent of about 300 Skylake servers to get that same performance into a single server.

Far-Field Voice Recognition Will Drive Home 'Conversational' Platforms

At CES 2018, XMOS (UK) plans to showcase its new voice processor, which supports stereo-AEC (acoustic echo cancellation) and stereo AEC far-field linear microphone array solution. The XVF3500 voice processor – also supported by a development kit – delivers 2-channel full duplex acoustic echo cancellation. The solution is designed for developers working in the growing voice-enabled smart TV, soundbar, set-top box and digital media adapter markets, all of which require stereo-AEC support for "across the room" voice-interface solutions. The solution also supports configurable AEC latency, where the AEC reference signals can be accurately calibrated, and the latency adjusted, to enable after-market far-field voice accessories for existing consumer electronics products.
