Learn How to Apply Second-Order Pruning Algorithms for SOTA Model Compression

At Neural Magic, we have developed state-of-the-art research for enabling faster and more efficient models through second-order pruning methods. These include Woodfisher (NeurIPS 2020), MFAC (NeurIPS 2021), and oBERT (EMNLP 2022). 

Second-order pruning methods enable higher sparsity while maintaining accuracy by removing weights that directly affect the loss function the least. The end result is a sparse model with much smaller files, lower latency, and higher throughput. For example, by applying the methods above, a ResNet-50 image classification model can be pruned 95% while maintaining 99% of the baseline accuracy, decreasing the files size from the original 90.3 MB to 9.3 MB

In this 30-minute webinar (plus 15-minute Q&A!), we will walk through the research, production results, and intuition for how these algorithms work. And most importantly, our experts will run through how to apply second-order pruning algorithms for SOTA model compression to your current ML projects!
