Gem Version

TensorStream::Opencl

This gem provides an OpenCL backend for TensorStream (https://github.com/jedld/tensor_stream). OpenCL is an open standard that allows running compute applications on heterogenous platforms like CPUs and GPUs. For certain neural network implementations, like deep neural networks GPU acceleration can dramatically speedup computation.

Installation

Make sure OpenCL device drivers are installed in your system. You may refer to the following links:

Nvidia

https://developer.nvidia.com/opencl

AMD

https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/OpenCL2-Driver.aspx

Intel

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-drivers

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tensor_stream-opencl'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install tensor_stream-opencl

Usage

If using a Gemfile or a framework like rails, simply including this gem will allow tensor_stream to automatically select opencl devices for use in your computation. Otherwise you can do:

require 'tensor_stream/opencl'

You can check for available OpenCL devices via'

TensorStream::Evaluator::OpenclEvaluator.query_supported_devices

TensorStream::Evaluator::OpenclEvaluator.query_supported_devices.map(&:native_device)
# => [#<OpenCL::Device: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5575R CPU @ 2.80GHz (4294967295)>, #<OpenCL::Device: Intel(R) Iris(TM) Pro Graphics 6200 (16925952)>]

Device placement control

You can place operations on certain devices using ts.device:

require 'tensor_stream/opencl'

ts = TensorStream
# For the first GPU
ts.device('/device:GPU:0') do
  a = ts.placeholder(:float32, shape: [DIMEN, DIMEN])
  b = ts.placeholder(:float32, shape: [DIMEN, DIMEN])
  # Compute A^n and B^n and store results in c1
  c1 << matpow(a, n)
  c1 << matpow(b, n)
end

# For the second GPU
ts.device('/device:GPU:1') do
  a = ts.placeholder(:float32, shape: [DIMEN, DIMEN])
  b = ts.placeholder(:float32, shape: [DIMEN, DIMEN])
  # Compute A^n and B^n and store results in c1
  c1 << matpow(a, n)
  c1 << matpow(b, n)
end

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
