Product Marketing Manager – Infrastructure as a Service

Graphcore

Product Marketing Manager – Infrastructure as a Service

The use of machine learning to reimagine software and services development is exploding.  Companies from every corner of the industry — the biggest cloud service providers to corporate industrials to financial services to healthcare to retailers — are exploring new ways of building products and services using data-centric learning models in place of traditional programming.  The drive to deliver more timely and accurate results is compelling an ever greater need for specialized computing power. 

Graphcore’s Intelligence Processing Units (IPUs) are specifically designed for these machine intelligence applications. The IPU is not like legacy processor architectures such as CPUs or GPUs, but is designed for the massive parallelism and sparse data structure characteristics of machine intelligence knowledge models.  Architecturally, IPUs deliver a new approach and offer significant performance, latency, and power efficiency advantages that are allowing machine intelligence innovators to make new breakthroughs. Graphcore fully supports the leading machine learning frameworks and our Poplar Graph Toolchain allows developers to innovate both within and outside those frameworks.

The machine intelligence computing demands are evolving at an exponential rate driving the need for warehouse scale computing. To meet this demand Graphcore is working to deliver elastic rack scale IPU to its users through our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
