hebel v0.01 Release Notes

Release Date: 2014-01-02 // almost 8 years ago
  • 01-01-2014

    • ✂ Removed dependency on scikits.cuda (this should make Hebel compatible with Windows, but I couldn't test that yet)

    • Serious speed-ups by avoiding freeing and reallocating memory for temporary objects. Previously, many temporary gpuarrays were reallocated in every single minibatch and then discarded, which was very inefficient. By using persistent objects for temporary objects across minibatches and some other improvements such as doing more computations in-place, a roughly 2x speed-up could be realised.
