PyTorch GPU acceleration on M1 Mac

I typically run compute jobs remotely using my M1 Macbook as a terminal. So, when PyTorch recently launched its backend compatibility with Metal on M1 chips, I was kind of interested to see what kind of GPU acceleration performance can be achieved. To make the process super easy, Anaconda also recently released an M1-native version. … Continue reading PyTorch GPU acceleration on M1 Mac

AdStyleGAN

If you follow the news on deep learning, you may have encountered the applications of Nvidia’s StyleGAN that generates photo-realistic fake faces. Since the typical dataset that StyleGAN is trained on consist of amateur-produced portraits from Flickr, I was curious to see what StyleGAN would learn from social media posts. I crawled over 1M social … Continue reading AdStyleGAN
