IBM Z Deep Neural Network Library (zDNN)
- IBM Z® Deep Neural Network Library (zDNN) provides APIs and a
toolkit to exploit a new NNPA facility instruction, which drives the on-chip inference accelerator
in IBM® z16, known as IBM
Z Integrated Accelerator for AI. zDNN provides support for transforming tensor memory layout
from standard layout to nonstandard layout, which is required by NNPA. zDNN also provides support
for converting tensor element data types from standard types to the NNPA required DLFloat16 format
and call deep learning primitives supported on NNPA.
IBM zDNN also includes the IBM Z Artificial Intelligence Data Embedding Library.
