AI / Deep Learning / Machine Learning
- $6.7 billion dedicated to machine learning in 2018; 84% came from Hyperscale
- We are monitoring spending patterns
- Are budgets increasing?
- What is the effect on configurations?
- On premise versus cloud
- Over 60% of HPC users have implemented machine learning; only 10% have no plans to.
- Usually with same hardware as HPC
- Often with changes to configuration, particularly with GPUs
- Significant change in budget versus last year’s survey
- To the extent that it is done as part of an HPC environment, it is already counted in our numbers
