GPUs are famously expensive – high end Nvidia Teslas can be priced well above $10,000. Now a New York startup, Paperspace, has announced a free cloud GPU service for machine/deep learning development on the company’s cloud computing and deep learning platform. Designed for students and professional learning how to build, train and deploy machine learning models, the service can ... Full article
Crumbling infrastructure is getting a closer look with a new deep learning tool billed as providing live, 3D views of bridges and tunnels along with automatic alerts that would allow maintenance managers to identify and fix faults before they escalate into a failure. The AI tool from Israeli startup Dynamic Infrastructure creates “medical records” for individual bridges, tunnels and ... Full article
Farming and advanced AI may seem antithetical, but they’re not. Ask John Deere. The venerable farm equipment company has not only long embraced advanced technologies, the company for years has evangelized adoption of high performance clusters and simulation software for product design. Now the company in integrating intelligence in traditional farm vehicles – tractors, harvesters and the like. And ... Full article
Dario Gil, IBM’s relatively new director of research, painted a intriguing portrait of the future of computing along with a rough idea of how IBM thinks we’ll get there at last month’s MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab’s AI Research Week held at MIT. Just as Moore’s law, now fading, was always a metric with many ingredients baked into it, Gil’s ... Full article
The ability to share and analyze data while protecting patient privacy is giving medical researchers a new tool in their efforts to use what one vendor calls “federated learning” to train models based on diverse data sets. To that end, researchers at GPU leader Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) working with a team at King’s College London came up with a ... Full article

In organizations that successfully embrace AI, going on gut feel is going the way of the dodo. So is the phrase: “because that’s the way we’ve always done it.” Where there’s machine learning, automated business processes that amount to paved-over cow paths run into the rigors of predictive models. Pearson Education Management’s online learning services unit, which supports dozens ... Full article
Business use of AI grew 270 percent over the past four years, according to Gartner, while Deloitte says 62 percent of respondents to its corporate October 2018 report deployed some form of AI.

Sometimes, the laws of physics can be so annoying, and AI is a case in point. There is a theoretical, experimentally verified upper limit on how many computations can be processed per kilowatt-hour. It’s called Landauer’s Principle: more processing generates more heat. Thus, compute-intensive AI is a veritable furnace within the data center, and there’s only so much that ... Full article
Despite the vastly improved reliability of datacenter gear and the rise of managed services to anticipate and limit consequences, an industry survey finds that datacenter outages remain common and costly. That’s unsettling, according to the Uptime Institute’s survey of known outages over the past year, since “the consequences are high, and possibly higher than in the past” owing to ... Full article
