The concept of metaverse has many definitions: a parallel universe with digital versions of ourselves and the world, the 3D web to succeed today's two-dimensional web, and a graphical interface for predictive analytics and to collaborate on product design. The visual world has many moving parts that unites many data types, interfaces, and AI models. ... Full article
MLCommons yesterday issued its latest round of MLPerf benchmarks – for Training, HPC, and Tiny. Releasing three sets of benchmarks at the same time makes parsing the results, never an easy chore, even more so. Top line: Nvidia accelerators again dominated Training and HPC (didn’t submit in the Tiny category) but Habana’s Gaudi2 performed well ... Full article
The metaverse. The term meta, by its most modern definition can be described as self-referencing or self-reflective. In contemporary nomenclature, meta is often used as a standalone adjective. A “meta” name for a dog would be Dog or a meta movie – would be a movie about movies. And so, we have the metaverse. Another world for people ... Full article
