It has been optimized to achieve high bandwidth on platforms using PCIe, NVLink, NVswitch, as well as networking using TCP/IP sockets. NCCL supports an arbitrary number of GPUs installed in a single node or across multiple nodes and can be used in either single- or multi-process (e.g., MPI) applications.
Survey experiments in studies of political and electoral behavior using profiles of potential candidates are standard practice in political science. With this type of experiments, the researchers' goal is to test which characteristics voters value most in political candidates. One of the main challenges, however, is to generate realistic profiles to be tested. One of the important components of these profiles are the faces of candidates. A potential option is to use faces of real candidates, but this involves complex legal and ethical issues. Another option is to hire models to represent candidates, but this can be expensive and time-consuming.
