As recipient of the "GPU Partnership Program" of Facebook AI Research (FAIR), THOTH research team, conducted by Cordelia Schmid, reinforces its collaboration with Facebook to speed-up their research on large-scale machine learning and computer vision.
The GPU servers donated by Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research Centre will allow the THOTH research team at INRIA Grenoble to speed-up their research on large-scale machine learning and computer vision.
We are already actively collaborating with FAIR on the topic of semantic image segmentation. The server donation, with its 8 GPU cards, strengthens our partnership with FAIR. It will in particular extend our capability to do research on memory and compute intensive generalized convolutional network architectures, and applications of visual recognition in video, said THOTH researcher, Dr. Jakob Verbeek.
