FPGAs are increasingly used to accelerate AI workloads in datacenters for tasks like machine learning inference. A growing list of FPGA accelerators are challenging datacenter GPU deployments, promising to unburden already overworked CPUs in datacenter servers. Earlier this month, Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) launched its Stratix 10 NX FPGA with an eye toward AI model training and inference. Xilinx (NASDAQ: ... Full article
Cryptocurrencies and the associated blockchain decentralized ledger technologies have grown in importance as a new asset class. They have fueled an emerging crypto economy which has become an important driver of technology development and investment decisions globally. Supercomputers, which do the heavy lifting for AI, science, and engineering, are increasingly also safeguarding digital money. Decentralized Trust In traditional banking, ... Full article
Legislation introduced in the U.S. House and Senate seeks to revive the U.S. semiconductor industry via a roughly $12 billion spending package and tax incentives designed to promote technology innovation across the chip ecosystem. The Senate version of the CHIPS for America Act, as in “Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors,” proposes to revive domestic chip making, fund R&D ... Full article
Without an enterprise AI approach, prosecutors see fraud in the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, they admit there are too many scams to count, let alone stop. Organized crime is scheming to take a growing cut of the emergency spending in the CARES Act. The rules of stimulus programs are constantly changing, making it hard to know who should ...

Nvidia unveiled its Selene AI supercomputer today in tandem with the updated listing of world’s fastest computers. Nvidia also introduced the PCIe form factor of the Ampere-based A100 GPU. Nvidia’s new internal AI supercomputer, Selene, joins the upper echelon of the 55th Top500’s ranks and breaks an energy-efficiency barrier. With 27.5 double-precision Linpack petaflops, Selene landed the number seventh ... Full article
When Nvidia announced its acquisition of Mellanox, the GPU leader noted that datacenters would eventually be built like high performance computers. Hence, it’s not surprising the first fruits of Nvidia’s 2019 acquisition of the networking specialist focuses on applying AI to security and predictive maintenance applications in InfiniBand datacenters. The supercomputer datacenter “cyber-AI platform” unveiled this week is built ... Full article
While AI deployments are picking up steam, challenges to success, both technical and cultural, abound. One of the biggest challenges is the lack of alignment among the three pillars of enterprise AI success: business users who are closest to the data, data engineers charged with keeping the data pipes open, and data scientists who make AI work. This lack ... Full article
