Introducing vHPC Toolkit for High Performance Computing and Machine Learning

posted

Overview High Performance Computing (HPC) is the use of parallel-processing techniques to solve complex computational problems. HPC systems have the ability to deliver sustained performance through the concurrent use of distributed computing resources, and they are typically used for solving advanced scientific and engineering problems, such as computational fluid dynamics, bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, weather modeling Read more...

Virtualizing Deep Reinforcement Learning on vSphere leveraging Bitfusion

posted

 Deep Reinforcement Learning Humans excel at solving a wide variety of challenging problems, from low-level motor control through to high-level cognitive tasks. Deep Reinforcement learning (DRL) is an aspect of machine learning that leverages agents by taking actions in an environment to maximize the cumulative reward. DRL uses a paradigm of learning by trial-and-error, solely Read more...
