Idyl E3 and GPUs

Coming in Idyl E3 2.6.0, entity model training and usage on GPUs will be supported. Using a GPU can provide significant performance improvements when training an entity model and when using the entity model to extract entities.

Using a GPU is currently only supported for deep learning entity models. The process for creating and using deep learning entity models does not change. When running a GPU-capable edition of Idyl E3 the available GPUs will be transparently used instead of the CPU.

The GPU capability makes Idyl E3 ideal for Amazon Web Services’ P2 and G3 instance types.
