Weather forecasting is a tricky, unforgiving business, and for weather-dependent clients in precise locations, like airlines and sports teams, accuracy is king. Making accurate predictions for a highly specific area, however, is not within the scope of many major weather models, which operate with resolutions measured in kilometers. Weather technology company ClimaCell provides micro-forecasting for clients who need more ... Full article
As expected, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications are already having an impact on society. Many industries that we tap into daily—such as banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), and digitized health care—can benefit from AI and ML applications to help them optimize mission-critical operations and execute functions in real time. The BFSI sector is an early ... Full article
A machine programming framework for heterogeneous computing championed by Intel Corp. and university partners is built around an automated engine that analyzes code for similarities. The approach could eventually allow non-programmers to create software based on intent. Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) along with research partners at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology said their Machine Inferred ... Full article

The automotive industry finds strong use cases for supercomputers, which can help industrial designers do everything from optimizing engines and aerodynamics to running virtual crash tests. Now, German automotive manufacturer Continental is announcing a new leap forward with the debut of the fastest known supercomputer in the automotive industry. The new supercomputer (as-yet unnamed) is built from more than ... Full article
Recurrent neural networks (RNNs) have shown phenomenal success in several sequence learning tasks such as machine translation, language processing, image captioning, scene labeling, action recognition, time-series forecasting, and music generation. No doubt, CNNs are the most popular neural networks, but RNNs are no less important. This fact is evident from the fact that in 2016 and 2020, RNNs accounted ... Full article
The conventional wisdom holds that Internet of Things and data analytics applications are driving the steady shift of server deployments to the networks. Certainly, the overriding requirement is placing processing horsepower closer to edge devices and end users. It turns out that the forecast doubling of edge server deployments over the next several years is instead being driven by ... Full article
Lightbits Labs, the “originator” of NVM Express over TCP block storage, said the latest version of its LightOS platform integrates cloud-native persistent storage for Kubernetes. The result is said to be improved scaling and availability via clustering. San Jose-based Lightbits’ architecture separates storage and computing while leveraging NVMe/TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). Its software-defined storage framework now targets container-based applications ... Full article
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has had a massive impact on the way companies do business, and it goes without saying that the technology is here to stay. An article from Forbes stated that Gartner predicts the business value created by AI will reach $3.9 trillion dollars in 2022. Meanwhile, IDC forecasts worldwide spending on cognitive and AI systems will reach ... Full article
