One of the challenges facing companies today is accelerating the performance of Artificial Intelligence (AI). For this purpose, 4DIGITAL has adopted an approach in which using hardware GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) as independent processors in its solutions, it obtains incredible results that positively impact the business.
One of the recommended elements to accelerate the training of deep learning models are the GPUs, these allow to accelerate the processing of convolutional neural networks (CNN) and recurrent neural networks (RNN). Its capacity for massively parallel processing and performing complex calculations to train neural networks, facilitates much faster times compared to conventional CPUs.
DSPs are also useful for Artificial Intelligence applications that involve real-time processing of signal data, such as speech processing, speech recognition, or sensor-recovered signal processing. These processors can optimize performance and efficiency in these specific tasks thanks to their specialized design.
Both GPUs and DSPs are valuable options for accelerating AI performance in different applications. GPUs are widely used for accelerating training and inference of deep learning models, while DSPs are useful for tasks signal processing in AI applications
The choice of the right hardware will depend on the specific needs and requirements of your Artificial Intelligence application and 4DIGITAL can give you the best recommendation and provide the necessary hardware.
Proper hardware selection
Make sure you choose the right GPU and DSP hardware for your AI needs. Research the technical specifications, computing capabilities, AI library support, and compatibility with the software you plan to use. Also, consider the amount of memory, bandwidth, and power requirements to optimize performance.
Parallelization of tasks
Both GPUs and DSPs are especially efficient at parallel processing. Take advantage of this capability by breaking AI tasks into independent blocks and distributing them across multiple cores or processing units. This can significantly speed up performance and processing speed.
Using optimized frameworks and libraries
Take advantage of optimized software libraries and frameworks to accelerate AI processing on GPU and DSP hardware. For example, it uses libraries like CUDA for GPUs or OpenCL for compatible GPUs and DSPs. These libraries provide specific functions and tools for efficient AI processing on these devices.
Make adjustments to AI algorithms to take full advantage of GPU and DSP hardware features. Some techniques include using reduced precision computations (such as FP16) instead of full precision (FP32) when possible, or implementing computational load reduction techniques such as quantization or model pruning.
Maintenance and update
Make sure you keep your hardware up to date with the latest driver and firmware versions. Manufacturers often release updates that improve performance and fix bugs. Also, keep your software development tools and AI libraries up-to-date to benefit from the latest enhancements and optimizations.
Iterative testing and tuning
Perform extensive testing and experiment with different hardware and software configurations to find the optimal combination for your specific AI needs. Tune parameters and perform benchmark tests to assess performance and determine necessary improvements.
Optimizing GPU and DSP hardware for Artificial Intelligence may require technical knowledge and experience in the field. If you are inexperienced in configuring and optimizing hardware of this type, please consider the advice of 4DIGITAL's subject matter experts to ensure that you take full advantage of the acceleration potential offered by these devices.
