Neural machine translation is a natural AI application that would allow users to localize systems by automating content translation into as many as 72 languages. Despite the AI-powered technique’s promise for adapting international brands to local markets, a survey by an AI vendor specializing in machine translation finds that most of those AI projects fall short. A white paper ... Full article

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

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

Buzzy new technologies are commonly perceived, at least for a while, as panaceas. When Big Data emerged some years ago, Hadoop hype was rampant. Addison Snell, CEO of industry watcher Intersect360, jokes about data analytics project managers viewing Hadoop as something of a magic potion. “There was this big notion of ‘Hey, I've got this data, let's get a ...

Infineon Technologies’ acquisition of Silicon Valley mainstay Cypress Semiconductor Corp. underscores what increasingly looks like the end of an era for high-flying U.S. chip makers that have seen their fortunes dim as semiconductor manufacturing shifts to Asia and the pace of industry consolidation quickens. The $10.1 billion cash deal announced over the weekend would make Munich-based Infineon the leading ... Full article

PayPal is no stranger to fraud. As one of the Internet’s first online payment services, PayPal has been exposed to every type of wire fraud imaginable (and some beyond imagination). Sometimes the fraudsters had the upper hand, but now, thanks to deep learning (DL) models running on high performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, PayPal is leveraging its vast repository of ...

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

AI firms attracted a record $9.33 billion in investments from venture capital firms in 2018, nearly a 10 percent increase from 2017. So far this year, AI funding has dipped a bit, but that doesn’t mean another AI winter is coming. AI firms attracted $2.0 billion in investments during the first quarter of 2019, according to PwC’s MoneyTree report. It ... Full article

AI comes in many forms, each at its own stage of development with its own definition, techniques and capabilities. Some forms – such as Artificial General Intelligence, AI super-intelligence or Strong AI, the kind of AI that might someday automate all work and that we might lose control of – live in the future and may never (some say ...

According to the Cisco Global Cloud Index 2015-2020/Synergy Research, by 2020, 47 percent of all servers sold are expected to go to hyperscalers, which deploy distributed computing environments ranging up to tens of thousands of servers. For legacy hardware providers this trend portends a narrower customer base with both a higher technical acumen and closer attention to the bottom ... 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
