Distributed Training

Distributed training is a technique used in deep learning to train large data sets and/or models by leveraging multiple machines, each with its own memory, storage, and processing power. This approach lets developers leverage the combined resources of multiple computers to train complex models faster than using a single machine. In addition to increasing the speed of training, distributed training can also help reduce bias and improve generalization performance. By splitting up the data set across multiple nodes, it introduces an element of randomness that creates more reliable predictions when applied to new data points or unseen scenarios. Furthermore, distributed training can be scaled easily to accommodate larger datasets or more powerful hardware for improved performance. Ultimately, distributed training enables models to reach higher levels of accuracy than would otherwise be possible with a single machine.  

Distributed training is an invaluable tool for deep learning practitioners seeking to train large models with high accuracy in a relatively short amount of time. With proper planning and implementation, developers can reap significant benefits from this approach.

Cerebras developed technology that can significantly increase the performance of deep learning workloads by leveraging advanced techniques such as massive memory and compute scaling. With this technology, you’ll be able to achieve faster training times, allowing for more time spent on development and experimentation.
