Fear the Economic Singularity

In dystopian science fiction, we are taught to fear the technological singularity – the time when artificial super intelligence advances to a point far beyond human intelligence, with a result that profoundly alters human existence. Vivid imagery of automated weapons of doom working to wipe out human civilization and take over the world – or the galaxy – have terrorized generations of sci-fi fans. Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, and … Read More → "Fear the Economic Singularity"

Who Will Win AI at the Edge?

We’ve written a lot about AI in the cloud, and we’ve discussed data center solutions such as GPUs, high-end FPGAs, and dedicated AI chips such as Intel’s Nervana. For many applications, training and inferencing CNNs and other AI-based systems in cloud data centers is the only way to get the compute power required to crunch the vast data sets and complex models. But, … Read More → "Who Will Win AI at the Edge?"

Modernizing the Memory Hierarchy

We now live in a data-driven world. With the proliferation of IoT, we are rapidly ramping toward a trillion connected sensors on the planet, all gathering data at an ever-accelerating pace. In just the last year or so, it is likely that we have gathered more data than in all of human history prior to that. But data is useless unless we do something with it, … Read More → "Modernizing the Memory Hierarchy"

Intel Achieves AI Nervana

At CES 2019 in Las Vegas this week, Navin Shenoy – Intel Data Center Group executive vice president, announced the Intel Nervana Neural Network Processor for Inference, which will go into production this year. Back in 2016, Intel acquired Nervana, a 48-person AI SAAS startup from San Diego, for (reportedly) something like $408 million. Nervana was a software company at the time, providing a full-stack software-as-a-service platform called Nervana Cloud, … Read More → "Intel Achieves AI Nervana"
