A technique known as “ensemble learning” has been used to improve the performance of natural language processing models. However, the approach typically consists of hundreds of different deep neural network models, making deployment prohibitively expensive owing to the heavy computing costs associated with inference runtimes. AI researchers at Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) came up with a way of compressing multiple ... Full article
Tens of billions will be spent this year on AI development, but those efforts continue to be stymied by ratty data that has undermined model training efforts and burned through project budgets. That’s the sobering conclusion of a vendor survey of data scientists, AI technologist and business executives that uncovered widespread problems with data quality, specifically data labeling required ...

The relentless ingenuity driving cyber hacking is a global engine that knows no rest. Anyone with a laptop, some programming skills and a mother’s basement can buy or rent a phishing kit and start attacking – or it can be done by professionals with increasingly devious techniques. For cyber-crooks, it’s a numbers game: the one in 10,000 user fooled ... Full article

More so than with most acquisitions of this kind, HPE’s purchase of Cray for $1.3 billion, announced last week, seems to have elements of that overused, often abused term: transparency. Another surprise: HPE apparently isn’t paying the usual lip service when it says Cray will live as an entity under the HPE umbrella and that the venerable Cray brand ... Full article
Hardware vendors are betting the transition to 5G wireless networks supporting myriad connected consumer and industrial devices also will accelerate the shift to heavy-duty bare-metal servers as a way to provision cloud-native tools like the Kubernetes cluster orchestrator. The expansion of the Kubernetes ecosystem as a de facto standard for managing application containers is reflected in adoption of the ... Full article
As regulators prepare to tighten U.S. export controls with an eye toward restricting technology transfers to China, industry groups are pushing back, arguing that overly restrictive rules would cost U.S. industry hundreds of billions in export sales. Trade groups are meanwhile seeking to ensure that export control issues are not swept up in the current trade tensions between the ... Full article
Since acquiring GitHub in June 2018, Microsoft has sought to make good on its pledge to retain the project collaboration platform’s “developer-first ethos.” This week it turned over to GitHub an AI search tool as an open-source project. The vector search approach encapsulated in an algorithm called Space Partition Tree and Graph attempts to address the reality that growing data ... Full article
Venerable supercomputer pioneer Cray Inc. will be acquired by Hewlett Packard Enterprise for $1.3 billion under a definitive agreement announced this morning. The news follows HPE’s acquisition nearly three years ago of supercomputer vendor SGI, for $275 million, both moves bolstering the company’s HPC technology portfolio and, presumably, HPE’s no. 1 position in the HPC server market. The acquisition ... Full article
Edge computing is emerging as the killer app for AI and ML, with staggering growth predictions. Projections indicate there will be more than 50 billion internet-connected objects and devices by 2020, representing an $11 trillion market opportunity, across all major verticals combined. The global autonomous vehicle market alone is expected to surpass $50 billion this year, and $550 billion ... Full article
Network infrastructure has had a hard time keeping up with the data explosion and surging demand for real-time capabilities as everything but the kitchen sink is networked. Incremental progress has been made via open and virtual networking efforts that have yielded next generation switching and routing technologies, including 100-gigabit/second Ethernet switches. But demand for datacenters that can provide more ... Full article
 Hot as AI is right now, there are growing concerns that technology vendors may cause AI climate change – a new AI winter brought on by hype and unmet expectations. AI is in a classic phase of the technology life cycle in which vendors, media and industry analysts are out ahead – possibly way out ahead – of the ... Full article
VMware continues its push into micro-services for multi-cloud deployments with its acquisition of Bitnami, a provider of server applications and development tools running virtually or hosted in the cloud. The deal for Bitnami announced Wednesday (May 15) follows VMware’s acquisition of Kubernetes startup Heptio last November. Heptio was founded by the creators of the Kubernetes cluster orchestrator that has emerged ... Full article
There is no shortage of processing architectures emerging to accelerate deep learning workloads, with two more options emerging this week to challenge GPU leader Nvidia. First, Intel researchers claimed a new deep learning record for image classification on the ResNet-50 convolutional neural network. Separately, Israeli AI chip startup Hailo.ai released a new deep learning processor on Tuesday (May 14) ... Full article
A stock trading backtesting algorithm used by hedge funds to simulate trading variants has received a massive, GPU-based performance boost, according to Nvidia, which has announced a 6,250x acceleration to the STAC-A3 “parameter sweep” benchmark. Using an Nvidia DGX-2 system to run accelerated Python libraries, Nvidia said in one case the system ran 20 million STAC-A3 simulations on a ... Full article
Network virtualization and software-actuated networking are finally moving past the hype stage and it’s likely you’re now considering a real investment in automation. But before you start, consider this: Don’t bother.  Don’t adopt any of it — from intent-based networking to managing an SD-WAN — if you don’t incorporate comprehensive monitoring. Because unlike humans, automation arrives with zero trust, ... Full article
The National Science Foundation is taking some heat for collaborating with Amazon to fund research on AI fairness. With proposals due at the end of June (“letters of intent” were due on May 10), critics are warning that AI leaders like Amazon are waging a campaign to influence the AI fairness debate in their favor. At first glance, the ... Full article
SAP continues to push its flagship HANA in-memory database platform higher into the cloud with a range of new analytics, cloud storage, AI and robotic process automation features aimed down-market beyond big companies and “complex scenarios.” As SAP (NYSE: SAP) points HANA toward a mass market, “We want to see all industries in the cloud, the public cloud ...

At Intel’s investor meeting yesterday in Santa Clara, Calif., the company filled in details of its roadmap and product launch plans and sought to allay concerns about delays of its 10nm chips. In laying out its 10nm and 7nm timelines, Intel revealed that its first 7nm product would be a GPU targeted for datacenter and HPC applications. The product ... Full article
Solarflare, the high performance network specialist under agreement to be acquired by Xilinx, has announced a network processing off-loading capability – one that its Wall Street customers have used for years – that Solarflare said lets data centers reclaim 25 percent of server resources. The key to Cloud Onload is Solarflare’s kernel bypass technology that separates the operating system ... Full article
Cloud infrastructure providers targeting the booming hybrid cloud market continue to coalesce around the Kubernetes cluster orchestrator that serves as a bridge between datacenters and public clouds for applications such as databases. For example, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) expanded their collaboration to bring the OpenShift container platform to the Azure cloud as the partners seek ... Full article
