AI to Surpass Human Perception in 5 to 10 Years, Zuckerberg Says

Apr 29, 2016 |

Machine learning-powered artificial intelligence will match and exceed human capabilities in the areas of computer vision and speech recognition within five to 10 years, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg predicted this week. Like most of the Web giants, Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) uses machine learning technology to leverage its massive data set and deliver better services to its customers. Algorithms work behind the scenes at Facebook to do things like recommend new connections to Facebook users, to present content that matches a Read more…

GPU-Powered Deep Learning Emerges to Carry Big Data Torch Forward

Apr 13, 2016 |

The big data analytic ecosystem has matured over the last few years to the point where techniques such as machine learning don’t seem as exotic as they once were. In fact, consumers have even come to expect their products and services to be adaptive to their behavior, which is one of the hallmarks of machine learning. As we look to the future, the field of deep learning on GPUs is poised to carry the big data analytics torch forward into Read more…

Unleashing Artificial Intelligence with Human-Assisted Machine Learning

Mar 17, 2016 |

Artificial intelligence has never been as pervasive as it is today. From Google’s self-driving cars from to Hilton’s new Watson-powered hotel concierge, we are witnessing an explosion of AI capabilities. But while it may appear that machines are taking over, they are still tied to their human masters for one very important task: training. “We’re in the middle of the ‘Big Bang’ moment of AI,” NVIDIA‘s Senior Product Manager Will Ramey says in the AISummit’s new ebook on the topic.

Harnessing GPUs Delivers a Big Speedup for Graph Analytics

Dec 15, 2015 |

Looking for a quick way to boost the performance of your graph-based machine learning algorithms? If you run the algos atop the Blazegraph database, you will see your queries execute 200 to 300 times faster when you add the new GPU module unveiled today by SYSTAP, the company behind Blazegraph. The new Blazegraph GPU offering will help to solve big queries in life sciences, financial detection, and cyber security that can bog down graph databases running atop a traditional server Read more…

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…

GPU-driven Mobile Device for Deep Learning Medical Diagnostics – at Scale, at the Edge, at ‘the Roof of the World’

Mar 15, 2016 |

By bringing to India, Bangladesh and Nepal a low-cost, GPU-driven mobile device trained to recognize chronic disease “signatures” in medical images, a healthcare start-up is building a distributed cognitive computing capability that provides advanced diagnostics to a resource-poor, population-dense region of the world. If the eyes are windows into the soul, they also can help provide a view of a patient’s overall health. Breakdowns and leaks in the microscopic capillaries in the retina can be early indicators of diabetes, high Read more…

Startup to Offer Neural Network Training in the Cloud

Dec 7, 2015 |

One of the most time-consuming components of using deep neural networks is training the algorithms to do their jobs. It can often take weeks to train or re-train the network–and that’s after you set it up. A startup called today announced how it plans to tackle that problem: by allowing customers to train their neural network on its speed cloud-based GPU cluster. Deep neural networks have recently emerged as a competitive differentiator for organizations hoping to make sense of Read more…
