Does a GPU helps?

Post by rmorales » Fri Feb 07, 2020 5:27 am

Hello,

We are creating a web application for modelling competence development by students, and we are in the process of creating dynamic bayesian networks on the basis of a competence map with around a hundred nodes (about 1.5 parents per node). We are requeting support from Amazon Web Services to host the server, and they have asked me if I need GPUs. So the question: is SMILE (pySMILE) able to take advantage of GPUs?

Regards,
Rafael

SMILE does not use the GPU for speeding the calculations.

We're using SMILE on AWS for a couple of years now, including AWS Lambda (serverless). We didn't encounter any problems, but if you have any AWS-specific issues, let us know.
