Beauty Contest Features Algorithmic Judges

Nov 20, 2015 |

It’s often said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That concept will be put to the test next year during a unique beauty contest where robots trained by deep neural networks will judge human contestants based on perceived “wrinkliness” and other features. “What would you say if I told you that today’s beauty contests are very biased and limited and we are looking at the wrong features when evaluating other people?” writes Olga Kairova, a deep learning Read more…

Inside Yahoo’s Super-Sized Deep Learning Cluster

Oct 12, 2015 |

As the ancestral home of Hadoop, Yahoo is a big user of the open source software. In fact, its 32,000-node cluster is the still the largest in the world. Now the Web giant is souping up its massive investment in Hadoop to give it a deep learning environment that’s the envy of the valley. With more than 600 petabytes of data spread across 40,000 Hadoop nodes, Yahoo is obviously a big believer in all things Hadoop. After all, Doug Cutting Read more…

How NVIDIA Is Unlocking the Potential of GPU-Powered Deep Learning

Aug 20, 2015 |

Companies across nearly all industries are exploring how to use GPU-powered deep learning to extract insights from big data. From self-driving cars and voice-directed phones to disease-detecting mirrors and high-speed securities trading, the potential use cases for the technology are large and expanding by the day. Ever since computer scientist Geoff Hinton decided to try training a neural network on a GPU and did much to help popularize the field of deep neural networks several years back, researchers have been Read more…

GPU-Powered Terrorist Hunter Eyes Commercial Big Data Role

Oct 8, 2014 |

A company called GIS Federal that’s helping the U.S. Army track the movement of terrorists across time, space, and the Internet using a distributed, GPU-powered, in-memory database is gearing up to head out into the commercial world and help private companies track the movements of physical and virtual assets in powerful new ways. GIS Federal is a technology startup based in Virginia that has been incubated by the U.S. Army. The company works closely with the U.S. Army’s Cyber Center Read more…

MIT Spinout Exploits GPU Memory for Vast Visualization

Jan 29, 2014 |

An MIT research project turned open source project dubbed the Massively Parallel Database (Map-D) is turning heads for its capability to generate visualizations on the fly from billions of data points. The software—an SQL-based, column-oriented database that runs in the memory of GPUs—can deliver interactive analysis of 10TB datasets with millisecond latencies. For this reason, its creator feels comfortable is calling it “the fastest database in the world.”
