In this paper we describe the implementation of a complete ANN training procedure for speech recognition using the block mode back-propagation learning algorithm. We exploit the high performance SIMD architecture of GPU using CUDA and its C-like language interface. We also compare the speed-up obtained implementing the training procedure only taking advantage of the multi-thread capabilities of multi-core processors. Our approach has been tested by training acoustic models for large vocabulary speech recognition tasks, showing a 6 times reduction of the time required to train real-world large size networks with respect to an already optimized implementation using the Intel MKL libraries.
