I felt that article had a point, but overstated it.

There are lots of domains -- simulation, computer vision, robotic control, machine learning -- which are CPU bound and will remain so for the next decade. In fact, one of the cutting edges of these domains is always CPU bound, practically by definition (sensor densities also increase quickly with time).

I sincerly doubt that machine learning is CPU bound. Many things related to numerical computing are memory bound
