Top Features
Many deep neural networks (DNNs) make their predictions from behind an incomprehensible “black box,” which leads domain experts to question the internal reasoning behind why the model made certain decisions. What features were considered with what weightage, and how do these factors affect the final prediction? This is exactly the problem Explainable AI (XAI) tries to solve. XAI focuses ... Full article
IBM will integrate Anaconda’s Python-based data science platform into its Watson Studio and Cloud Pak data offerings as a way to advance open source AI development. Watson Studio, IBM’s data prep and model building platform, will in turn be offered on Anaconda’s repository. Among the goals of the partnership announced on Thursday (June 4) is reducing technical, operational and ... Full article

The pandemic was expected to slow global IT spending. The only questions being by how much and for how long. Hard numbers for the beginning of this year are coming in, with declines from a year ago approaching double digits along with tempering of cloud and colocation investments. Among the most closely watched results are from Gartner Inc., which ... Full article
Dell Technologies advanced its hardware virtualization strategy to AI workloads this week with the introduction of capabilities aimed at expanding access to GPU and HPC services via its EMC, VMware and recently acquired Bitfusion units. The result would be an “AI anywhere” capability in which machine learning and other workloads could scale on hybrid cloud infrastructure designed to support ... Full article
Exploding data sets and complex software have made it harder for single-purpose platforms like ASICs to keep up with the growing demands of enterprise datacenters. Heavy investments in chip design and development therefore run the risk of obsolescence by the time they are deployed. In response, an ecosystem is emerging around greater programmability that promises to optimize hardware while ... Full article
The biggest cool factor in server chips is the nanometer. AMD beating Intel to a CPU built on a 7nm process node* – with 5nm and 3nm on the way – has been instrumental to AMD’s data center market resurgence. Nanometer cachet is incalculable: on it, companies, careers and fortunes are made and lost. But that cachet is coming ... Full article
Zscaler Inc. is doubling down in its drive to dominate the market for “zero trust” security frameworks with its second acquisition in about six weeks. The cloud security specialist said Thursday (May 28) it is acquiring Edgewise Networks, a four-year-old Boston area startup focused on securing communications among applications running in cloud and datacenter networks. Terms of the deal ... Full article
The U.S. military is ramping up efforts to secure semiconductors and its electronics supply chain by embedding defenses during the chip design phase. The automation effort also addresses the high cost and complexity of securing hardware development along with current lack of secure-oriented chip design tools. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced a pair of teams this ... Full article
The COVID-19 HPC Consortium, a public-private effort delivering free access to HPC processing for scientists pursuing coronavirus research – some utilizing AI-based techniques – has expanded to more than 56 research teams and extended to supercomputing centers and programs in Europe. IBM, which in March helped form the consortium with the White House Office of Science & Technology, has ... Full article
A business operation hard hit by COVID-19 is the call center. Industries ranging from airlines to retailers to financial institutions have been bombarded with calls—forcing them to put customers on hold for hours at a time or send them straight to voicemail. Data reveals the picture. A recent study from Tethr of roughly 1 million customer service calls showed ... Full article
If your company is like most, it has multi-cloud or hybrid cloud aspirations. But how do you manage all your data in a secure and cohesive manner when it’s spread across multiple systems and locations? That’s a topic that is garnering intense interest across multiple sectors. The cloud is nearly ubiquitous at this point. Almost 90 percent of enterprises ... Full article
As contact tracing ramps up for exposure to COVID-19, so too are concerns about data privacy and whether phony tracing apps will expand opportunities for attackers preying on citizens who voluntarily use tracing apps to help fight the spread of the novel coronavirus. While data privacy debates continue across Europe and the U.S. about how best to implement contact ... Full article
As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps the globe, big data and AI have emerged as crucial tools for everything from diagnosis and epidemiology to therapeutic and vaccine development. Here, we collect the latest news in how big data is fighting back against COVID-19. Information Builders helps healthcare organizations apply data against COVID-19 Analytics provider Information Builders has announced enhancements to ... Full article
Nvidia’s seemingly endless roll continued in the first quarter with the company announcing blockbuster earnings that exceeded Wall Street expectations. Nvidia said revenues for the period ended April 26 were up 39 percent YoY to $3.08 billion, ahead of its own forecast of between $2.94-$3.06 billion, which included a $100 million impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Net income was ... Full article
Microsoft has unveiled a supercomputing monster – among the world’s five most powerful, according to the company – aimed at what is known in scientific and philosophical circles as the “emergent property,” or at least a version of it. In AI, this means taking a step beyond “narrow AI,” the current state of things in which AI doing a ... Full article
All those huge data sets swirling around datacenters for running more AI and machine learning workloads are proving to be a boon for network adaptor equipment vendors. For example, the Ethernet adapter market reached $1.7 billion in 2019, marking the first time that demand for equipment with speeds of 25 gigabits or higher has breached $1 billion, according to ...

AMD continues to make inroads into the data center with its second-generation Epyc “Rome” processor, which last week scored a win with Nvidia’s announcement that its new Ampere-based DGX system would rely on AMD rather than Intel CPUs. However, Nvidia partners — OEMs and hyperscalers — can still opt for Intel CPUs when building Ampere-based HGX servers, using the ... Full article
Enterprises of all types are ramping up AI and machine learning projects, but realizing their true potential requires overcoming significant technology barriers. While compute infrastructure is often the focus, storage is equally important. Here are three key reasons why object storage — rather than file or block storage — is uniquely suited for AI and ML workloads: 1. Scalability ... Full article
Bias creeps into AI models as they are trained. Hence, experts warn that data sets and model training techniques must to be cleansed of bias at each step in the process. Among the tools promoted to eliminate bias are holistic data sets, so-called because they incorporate historical, out-of-domain and previously unused data. Another approach involves what one vendor bills ... Full article
