OneFlow: Redesign the Distributed Deep Learning Framework from Scratch

May 2, 2022

Aiming at a simple, neat redesign of distributed deep learning frameworks for various parallelism paradigms, we present OneFlow , a novel distributed training framework based on an SBP ( split , broadcast and partial-value ) abstraction and the actor model. SBP enables much easier programming of data parallelism and model parallelism than existing frameworks, and the actor model provides a succinct runtime mechanism to manage the complex dependencies imposed by resource constraints, data movement and computation in distributed deep learning.
