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.

Inside Intel’s nGraph, a Universal Deep Learning Compiler

Apr 26, 2018 |

The advent of deep learning has spawned new life into the quest to create artificial intelligence. But along the way, we’ve become awash in technological complexity, forcing data scientists to juggle multiple deep learning frameworks and hardware platforms against increased demands for their work.

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…
