Deep Learning Has Hit a Wall, Intel’s Rao Says

Nov 13, 2019 |

The rapid growth in the size of neural networks is outpacing the ability of hardware to keep up, said Naveen Rao, vice president and general manager of Intel’s AI Products Group, at the company’s AI Summit yesterday. Read more…

Why CTOs Should Reconsider FPGAs

Mar 26, 2019 |

Big data analytics adoption has soared in recent years. According to a 2018 market study, use of the technology has grown from 17 percent in 2015 to 59 percent in 2018, reaching a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36 percent. Read more…

Formulus Black’s DRAM Persistence Tech Now GA

Mar 20, 2019 |

Formulus Black yesterday announced the general availability of ForsaOS, a piece of software that allows any KVM-compatible application to run entirely in memory, without any modification.

In-memory computing has enjoyed a renaissance of late, as organizations seek to speed up their applications and lower the I/O overhead that they encounter when fetching data from traditional disk and solid-state disks (SSDs) over the PCI bus. Read more…

In Search of a Common Deep Learning Stack

Jan 24, 2019 |

Web serving had the LAMP stack, and big data had its SMACK stack. But when it comes to deep learning, the technology gods have yet to give us a standard suite of tools and technologies that are universally accepted. Read more…

A Wave of Purpose-Built AI Hardware Is Building

May 15, 2018 |

Google last week unveiled the third version of its Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), which is designed to accelerate deep learning workloads developed in its TensorFlow environment. But that’s just the start of a groundswell of new processors and processing architectures, including Wave Computing, which claims its soon-to-be-launched processor will dramatically lower the barrier of entry for running artificial intelligence workloads.

MIT Programmers Attack Big Data Memory Gap

Sep 15, 2016 |

Among the computing challenges presented by big data is the scattering of unstructured items across huge datasets. Pulling together that data from arbitrary locations in main memory is therefore emerging as a major performance bottleneck in CPUs. Read more…

Fusion-io Flashes the Future of Storage

Jan 26, 2012 |It has been quite a year for Fusion-io, the Salt Lake City-based purveyor of a new type of storage memory platform that moves time-critical data closer to the CPU for more rapid processing. From its growing presence in supercomputing circles to its adoption at a number of web-based retail.... Read more…
