    I suspect this is not really for deep learning research, but for companies that want an easy way to use deep learning:
    All librairies already installed, set up properly, etc: no need to pay a maintainer for that stuff, just pay your engineers train their models.

    For the love of God, why Ubuntu?

    If it's a support thing doesn't Red Hat offer something?

    Of course you would need education to use such a thing. But machine learning without actual machines that learn is just waste of time and scientific nonsense.

    when you learn how it works you know how well it will do
    the actual processing can be done when sleeping or in some data center in your company/school

    point i was going for is that it is far more important to know what this does, as thinking that some program will process your data perfectly can lead to false belief

    Ubuntu supports nVidia's proprietary drivers with packages in their main repos. Aside from that, Linux is Linux: there's no compelling reason not to use a distro with the largest desktop footprint (and therefore largest community support) that also offers paid support.

    The nice thing about ridiculously big hardware like this is that you don't need to know as much about solving the problem. You can just throw ALL of the data into the system and let it figure out which data is relevant instead of needing a human to do it.

    So what this would do will probably take just as long as older systems, but it will be able to look at more information and find more probability clusters in the data.
