Enterprise artificial intelligence (AI) startup BlackSwan Technologies has raised $28m in a Series A funding round. The Israel-based company said it will use the capital injection to fund new hires, develop new AI applications and drive growth. Investors Prytek, FinTLV and MS&AD Ventures led the funding round. BlackSwan Technologies also announced the wider launch of …

Los Alamos National Laboratory is partnering with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and NVIDIA to focus on delivering next-generation technologies to accelerate scientific computing. New developments will include innovative high-performance computing (HPC) technology efforts to advance greater performance efficiency, workflow efficiency and analytics. Additional details on the collaboration will be unveiled this fall. “We are excited …

George Konidaris still remembers his disheartening introduction to robotics. “When you’re a young student and you want to program a robot, the first thing that hits you is this immense disappointment at how much you can’t do with that robot,” he says. Most new roboticists want to program their robots to solve interesting, complex tasks …

Software intelligence company Dynatrace, announced the extension of its Software Intelligence Platform to support all services from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that publish metrics to Amazon CloudWatch, a fully managed AWS service that provides monitoring and observability of AWS resources and applications on AWS and on-premises environments. Combining Amazon CloudWatch metrics with the data already captured …

For large-scale social networks, testing a proposed code update or new feature is a complex and challenging task. In person and also online, people act and interact with one another in ways that are sometimes difficult for traditional algorithms to model or replicate. People’s behavior evolves and adapts over time and is different from one …

R is a programming language and software environment designed with statistical computing in graphics in mind. In R, information is stored in entities called objects. It’s through these objects that you can perform data manipulations, operations, and analysis in R. Here, we will introduce the main types of R objects and how you can create …

Depending on your opinion, Artificial Intelligence is either a threat or the next big thing. Even though its deep learning capabilities are being applied to help solve large problems, like the treatment and prevention of human and genetic disorders, or small problems, like what movie to stream tonight, AI in many of its forms (such …

TF Dev Summit ’19 | TF Lattice: Control Your ML with Monotonicity This AI safety solution lets you guarantee that your TF models behave like you think they should by letting you control your ML with monotonicity constraints. Speaker: Maya Gupta  

TF Dev Summit ‘19 | Mesh-TensorFlow: Model Parallelism for Supercomputers Batch-splitting (data-parallelism) is the dominant distributed Deep Neural Network (DNN) training strategy, due to its universal applicability and its amenability to Single-Program-Multiple-Data (SPMD) programming. However, batch-splitting suffers from problems including the inability to train very large models (due to memory constraints), high latency, and inefficiency …
