Add GPU support for Machine learning

Various machine learning backends benefit greatly by running with GPU support. We can already run Keras with a TensorFlow backend on DSx but it's CPU only which makes it unusably slow for many situations. It would be great to allow DSx to take advantage of 1 or more GPUs while training a network.

    Hi everyone - thanks for your votes around this idea for GPU support for DSX/WML. The implementation of this support is planned for Q4! If you have specific questions or private comments, please make sure to tag @Anthony Stevens, who is the product contact for WML.

    This request is being actively developed.  We can't say more than this publicly, but suffice to say that it will be worth the wait.  But if you're an IBM employee then please view the private comments for additional details.
