Nvidia's deep learning platform is now available as part of Baidu Cloud's deep learning service.

Baidu Cloud now offers access to Nvidia's Pascal architecture Tesla P40 GPUs along with Nvidia's deep learning software.

This includes training and inference acceleration for open-source deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and PaddlePaddle.

GPU computing is increasingly used to develop applications in areas such as natural language processing, traffic analysis, intelligent customer service, personalised recommendations and understanding video, according to Nvidia.

"Baidu and NVIDIA are long-time partners in advancing the state of the art in AI," said Nvidia general manager of advanced computing Ian Buck.

"Baidu understands that enterprises need GPU computing to process the massive volumes of data needed for deep learning. Through Baidu Cloud, companies can quickly convert data into insights that lead to breakthrough products and services."

Baidu Cloud Computing vice-president and general manager Shiming Yin said, "Our partnership with Nvidia has long provided Baidu with a competitive advantage.

"Baidu Cloud Service powered by Nvidia deep learning software and Pascal GPUs will help our customers accelerate their deep learning training and inference, resulting in faster time to market for a new generation of intelligent products and applications."

Baidu Cloud's deep learning service is available immediately.

The Nvidia deep learning platform is already available from other cloud service providers including Alibaba, Amazon, Google, IBM, and Microsoft.
