Intel® Math Kernel Library

Deep Neural Network extensions for Intel MKL

    Deep neural network (DNN) applications grow in importance in various areas including internet search engines, retail and medical imaging. Intel recognizes importance of these workloads and is developing software solutions to accelerate these applications on Intel Architecture that will become available in future versions of Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) and Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library (Intel® DAAL).

While we are working on new functionality we published a series of articles demonstrating DNN optimizations with Caffe framework and AlexNet topology:

Calling Python Developers - High performance Python powered by Intel MKL is here!

We are introducing a Technical Preview of Intel® Distribution of Python*, with packages such as NumPy* and SciPy* accelerated using Intel MKL. Python developers can now enjoy much improved performance of many mathematical and linear algebra functions, with up to ~100x speedup in some cases, comparing to the vanilla Python distributions. The technical preview is available for everybody at no cost. Click here to register and download.

Intel Math Kernel Library for Free – requires registration, includes forum support, and permits royalty-free use

Intel MKL is a popular math library used by many to create fast and reliable applications in science, engineering, and finance. Do you know it is now available for free (at no cost)? The community licensing program gives anyone, individuals or organizations, free license for the latest version of Intel MKL. There is no royalty for distributing the library in an application. The only restrictions are:

Intel® Math Kernel Library 11.3 update 1 is now available

Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) is a highly optimized, extensively threaded, and thread-safe library of mathematical functions for engineering, scientific, and financial applications that require maximum performance. Intel MKL 11.3 Update 1 packages are now ready for download. Intel MKL is available as part of the Intel® Parallel Studio XE and Intel® System Studio .

Forum poll: Intel MKL and threading

Intel MKL users,

We would like to hear from you how you are using Intel MKL with threading. Do you use the parallel or sequential MKL? How do your multithreaded applications use MKL? We would appreciate you to complete a short survey. It takes no more than 5 minutes. Your feedback will help us to make Intel MKL a better product. Thanks!
