Faster machine learning is coming to the Linux kernel

Software

It’s been a long time in the works, but a memory management feature intended to give machine learning or other GPU-powered applications a major performance boost is close to making it into one of the next revisions of the kernel.

Heterogenous memory management (HMM) allows a device’s driver to mirror the address space for a process under its own memory management. As Red Hat developer Jérôme Glisse explains, this makes it easier for hardware devices like GPUs to directly access the memory of a process without the extra overhead of copying anything. It also doesn’t violate the memory protection features afforded by modern OSes.

ActiveState’s Python taps Intel MKL to speed data science and machine learning

Software

Last year Intel became a Python distributor, offering its own edition of the language outfitted with Intel’s Math Kernel Library (MKL). MKL accelerates data-science-related tasks by using Intel-specific processor extensions to speed up certain operations, a fine fit for a language that has become a staple in machine learning and math-and-stats circles.

The Intel Distribution of Python, a repackaging of Continuum Analytics’s Anaconda distribution, incorporated MKL support to give Python data science and machine learning packages a boost. Now ActiveState, producers of an enterprise-grade Python, (as well as Ruby, Node.js, and Golang distributions)…
