Deep learning is still a stick-figure emulation of human learning. DL can be trained to a supercharged IQ based on an astounding amount of information, enabling it to execute some tasks beyond human capability. But deep learning has a learning disability. People learn continually (it’s hoped) – every day, in real time. But deep learning is typically based on ... Full article
Vectra, the cloud security platform vendor, has raised an additional $100 million in its latest funding round led by TCV, an early investor in technology companies ranging Facebook to Splunk.

Since its founding in 2010, the San Jose-based company has so far ... Full article
 Many businesses today seek to transform their operations using digital technology and automation. After years of encouragement from experts to migrate to the cloud, to automate processes and to prepare for waves of technology innovation, the path forward can still seem unclear. Organizations can get confused about what to automate, and how. But there’s a growing need to collect ... Full article
Thanks to their flexibility, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are often a first choice during system development – however, a new report by scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany has called their security into question. FPGAs’ flexibility allows them to be used to assume nearly any function performed by other computer chips – most of which ... Full article
Investors are zeroing in on the open standard RISC-V instruction set architecture and the processor intellectual property being developed by a batch of high-flying chip startups. Last fall, Esperanto Technologies announced a $58 million funding round. The chip IP vendor is incorporating more than 1,000 RISC-V cores onto a single 7-nm chip. Data storage specialist Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) is ... Full article

In IT, failure is not only an option, it’s inevitable. And in an era when businesses depend on big data, high-performance data analytics (HPDA), machine learning and AI applications running in the cloud, failures can have serious consequences. Failure per se is not the problem. Downtime – i.e., minimizing downtime – is the problem. There are ways to prevent ... Full article
