At DeepMind, the Research Platform Team builds infrastructure to empower and accelerate our AI research. We are excited to share how we developed TF-Replicator, a software library that helps researchers deploy their TensorFlow models on GPUs and Cloud TPUs with minimal effort and no previous experience with distributed systems. TF-Replicator’s programming model has now been open sourced as part of TensorFlow’s tf.distribute.Strategy.
Today we’re launching a new research unit, DeepMind Ethics & Society, to complement our work in AI science and application. This new unit will help us explore and understand the real-world impacts of AI. It has a dual aim: to help technologists put ethics into practice, and to help society anticipate and direct the impact of AI so that it works for the benefit of all.Read more
