Deep Learning & HPC for Everyone!
Hello dear passengers, the new topic about my project is equality!
I believe the topics in SoHPC should be comprehensible for everyone, so I decided to make a game to explain how HPC and Deep Learning works with a game.
” Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”Albert Einstein
While designing the game, the aim was giving the idea as simple as possible for every age and gender.
There are two modes of the game:
-Training Mode: You can train the deep neural network by sliding the images into the Deep Learning Module.
-Inference Mode: The trained deep neural network will try to guess the images that you slide.
Also, there is a button where the magic happens!
HPC Button: You can “Speed Up” the training and inference process by increasing the “HPC Workers”.
Don’t be shy! Just try the game, it is fun:
You can access the game with the full resolution by clicking here or you can download the PC version here. I made the game with Unity.
The training and inference of deep learning is a heavy computational process. While extracting information from images (they are just numbers in computers’ eyes), many matrix operations (like adding, multiplication and padding) happening. The process is long, however, the magic of HPC helps.
You can feel the powerful touch of HPC in the game with the button.
Very big thanks to my friend Çağdaş for helping me with his expertise in this project.
-Behind the idea-
Besides working and learning new academic things commonly in the beautiful nature of STFC Hartree Centre,
SoHPC event gave me a great opportunity to meet awesome people and visit fantastic places.
After one inspirational month in this event, I started to think about what we do and feel should be shared with everyone as simple as possible.
