Can anyone explain why the table named "GPU support per library" on this page does not include a column for classification? Only training and prediction it because there is no gain in using a GPU for classification problems? (Rather new to this machine learning - so forgive me if this is a dumb question).

hi @markbaumgarten what this table says is that GPU for training or inference at large is not supported by all included libraries. Classification, etc. are sub-tasks and GPU support flag applies across all of them. So Caffe can do both training and prediction with GPU across all tasks, while xgboost cannot.

Ok. Thanks
