​Arm, Intel and Nvidia have jointly authored a paper describing an 8-bit floating point (FP8) specification and its two variants E5M2 and E4M3 to provide a common interchangeable format that works for both artificial intelligence (AI) training and inference. This cross-industry specification alignment will allow AI models to operate and perform consistently across hardware platforms, accelerating AI …

Software intelligence company Dynatrace (NYSE: DT) announced today it has enhanced its analytics capabilities for modern multicloud environments by unifying its AI-powered log analytics with its digital experience monitoring (DEM) capabilities, including Session Replay. This latest enhancement to the Dynatrace® platform enables development teams to automatically gain deeper insights into specific user journeys by connecting logs to the user sessions that generated them. …

​What’s New: Intel has released the first set of open source AI reference kits specifically designed to make AI more accessible to organizations in on-prem, cloud and edge environments. First introduced at Intel Vision, the reference kits include AI model code, end-to-end machine learning pipeline instructions, libraries and Intel oneAPI components for cross-architecture performance. These kits enable data scientists …

Even with the impressive and continuous advances in solar technologies, the question remains: How can we efficiently collect energy from sunlight coming from varying angles from sunrise to sunset?     Solar panels work best when sunlight hits them directly. To capture as much energy as possible, many solar arrays actively rotate towards the sun …

When you picture a hospital radiologist, you might think of a specialist who sits in a dark room and spends hours poring over X-rays to make diagnoses. Contrast that with your dentist, who in addition to interpreting X-rays must also perform surgery, manage staff, communicate with patients, and run their business. When dentists analyze X-rays, …

William Shakespeare might have been talking about Apple’s recently released M1 chip via his prose in “A Midnight Summer’s Dream”: “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” The company’s software runs on the little squares made of custom silicon systems, resulting in Apple’s most powerful chip to date, with industry-leading power efficiency. Yet despite …

This video by the French computer programmer Damien Henry is a clever visual demonstration of machine learning – a term coined by the US computer scientist Arthur Samuel (1901-1990) to describe an algorithm that gives computers the ‘ability to learn without being explicitly programmed’. Using several videos recorded from windows during train rides, Henry trained an algorithm …

If you’ve ever used only your voice to authenticate a payment, place an order, or check an account over the phone, there is a good chance that Pindrop’s technology made it possible. Founded in Atlanta in 2011, Pindrop provides software and technology that uses machine learning, voice recognition, and behavioral analytics to help detect and prevent fraud …

At its core, artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability for machines to recognize patterns and make accurate predictions based on them. AI models continue to become more sophisticated and complex, and they increasingly require more compute, memory, bandwidth and power. AI is the fastest-growing compute workload and one of the four superpowers that Intel believes will …

There was no shortage of cybersecurity headlines in 2021. From REvil’s attacks, disappearance and resurgence to a brewing “cyber cold war” sweeping the world, 2021 was one of the most hectic years yet for the cybersecurity industry. And 2022 looks like it is going to be just as challenging, if not more so. A complex mix of people-centric training …
