Does anyone know is training a neural network on a GPU or multiple GPUs patented using Tensorflow library?
I want to know if using the library to train a model on a GPU or on multiple GPUs might infringe someone's patent, like this one EP3129870B1.
The specific patent EP3129870B1 claims a specific architecture for processing using GPUs. It is limited to what is covered by the claims and by no means covers all applications of machine learning using GPUs. This is far from my field so I can't comment on whether this, in any way, applies to how Tensorflow uses nvidia GPUs. What I can say is that people use Tensorflow GPU acceleration all the time. Amazon and Microsoft provide GPU acceleration of Tensorflow analyses as a service.
This all gets rather complicated. I'd imagine that nvidia provides some level of licensing as part of selling of their GPU products, some of which are designed specifically for machine learning. You might be better off directing your question to the Tensorflow community.
