Do I need to maintain a separate population in each distributed environment when implementing PBT in a MARL context?

I have questions regarding on how to implement PBT as described in Algorithm 1 (on page 5) in the paper, Population Based Training of Neural Networks to train agents in a MARL (multi-agent ...

Why do we average gradients and not loss in distributed training?

I'm running some distributed trainings in Tensorflow with Horovod. It runs training separately on multiple workers, each of which uses the same weights and does forward pass on unique data. Computed ...

In how few updates can a multi layer neural net be trained?

A single iteration of gradient descent can be parallelised across many worker nodes. We simple split the training set across the worker nodes, pass the parameters to each worker, each worker computes ...

How can we use crowdsourcing for deep learning?

Most companies dealing with deep learning (automotive - Comma.ai, Mobileye, various automakers, etc.) do collect large amounts of data to learn from and then use lots of computational power to train a ...
