> Sparsity enables, for example, training of neural networks that are much wider and deeper
than otherwise possible with a given parameter budget and computational budget, such as LSTMs
with tens of thousands of hidden units. (The largest LSTMs trained today are only thousands
of hidden units.)
> *Resource:* TensorFlow implemented repo - https://github.com/openai/blocksparse
> *Best Supported architectures:* Maxwell, Pascal with Kepler & Volta support for limited
functionality
