AMD becomes a founding member of the PyTorch Foundation

The Sunnyvale giant has confirmed its membership as a founding member of the PyTorch Foundation, a very important move by AMD that will serve to promote the adoption of artificial intelligence and deep learning a general level.

This foundation will be part of the non-profit organization Linux Foundationand will drive the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) by fostering and sustaining an ecosystem of open source projects with PyTorch, the machine learning (ML) software framework originally created and powered by Meta.

As a founding member, AMD joins other industry giants in prioritizing the continued growth of the active PyTorch community. AMD will help the PyTorch Foundation in the work of democratizing the most modern toolslibraries and other components that make deep learning innovation accessible to everyone, and it will do so through several fronts, among which we can highlight the AMD ROCm open software platform, its AMD Instinct accelerators, and also its CPUs and Adaptable SoCs.

Brad McCredie, corporate vice president of AMD Data Centers and Accelerated Processing, commented:

“Open software is critical to advancing research in HPC, AI, and ML, and we are ready to bring our expertise in open software platforms and innovation to the PyTorch Foundation. AMD Instinct accelerators and ROCm software power major HPC and ML sites around the world, from exascale supercomputers in research labs, to large cloud deployments showcasing the convergence of HPC and AI/ML. Together with other members of the foundation, we will support the acceleration of science and research that can have extraordinary impact on the world.

Santosh Janardhan, for his part, vice president of infrastructure at Metahas said that:

“We are delighted that AMD is joining the PyTorch Foundation and Bring your extensive experience in HPC, AI and ML to our members. AMD has continued to support PyTorch with its integration into the ROCm open software platform and has worked extensively with the open source community and other foundation members to advance performance with ML and AI workloads. The collaborative support offered by AMD continues our commitment through broad industry initiatives for global impact.”

AMD has a very complete platform to work with artificial intelligence and deep learning, and as we have seen its software ecosystem is not far behind either, so it is clear that its accession as a founding member it was the best thing that could happen to the PyTorch Foundation.
