When What
2018‑present Research Engineer, Distributed Machine Learning
R&D Center, Sony Corporation
  • To enable engineers and data scientist to utilize standard AI/ML toolchain on non-standard proprietary GPGPU cluster, I developed custom distributed deep learning stack including custom collective communication solution for non-standard proprietary communication fabric.
  • I help design GPGPU cluster using non-standard proprietary hardware for distributed deep learning workload.
  • Using low-rank learning method we developed in collaboration with UW-Madison, I reduced memory footprint of several of our neural network learning tasks by up to 50%.
  • I coordinate our team research collaboration effort with UW-Madison, which resulted in the publication: PUFFERFISH: Communication-efficient Models at No Extra Cost.
  • I coordinate our team research collaboration effort with Georgia Tech, which resulted in the publication: Nested Dithered Quantization for Communication Reduction in Distributed Training.
  • I developed a distributed deep learning simulator, which help our team broke world record of ImageNet/ResNet-50 training speed. During ABCI Grand Challenge 2018, we gained access to the entire ABCI cluster only for a limited time. The simulator allows us to do dry hyper-parameter tuning, thus significantly reducing the number of experiments required on the cluster.
  • I work on NNabla, Sony’s high-performance deep learning framework. I am responsible for distributed learning performance optimization as well as designing next-generation distributed learning API.
2015‑2018 Ph.D. Student, Computer Science
Nara Institute of Science and Technology
  • Doctoral Dissertation Increasing Data Center Efficiency with Improved Task Scheduling and Communication I propose several optimizations for cloud infrastructure.
  • Master’s Thesis Overseer: Application-Aware Routing OpenFlow controller for bandwidth and latency aware routing implemented with POX.
  • PRAGMA-ENT Breakable international SDN testbed for PRAGMA community. I help established and maintained this network, which connect multiple institutions including NAIST, Osaka University, University of California San Diego, and University of Florida.
  • Applying Deep Learning to Network Traffic Identification and Categorization I developed network traffic classification model using stacked denoising autoencoder in TensorFlow. This model is learned on the CAIDA Internet traffic dataset. The model is a part of my proposal to create automatic SDN-based data center network traffic optimizer.
  • Container Rebalancing I proposed a novel scheduling mechanism with a rebalancing processing working alongside a scheduling process. A Hadoop/Hive-powered data processing technique and a Python-based simulation using Google’s cluster data is performed to validate this method.
2017 Intern Researcher
Information Technology Research Institute, AIST
I was responsible for deploying and benchmarking an experimental multi-site GPFS cluster connecting Japan, Australia, and U.S.A. The work involves the administration and debugging of Linux environment as well as collaborating with researchers from multiple institutions.
