Real Progress Being Made in Explaining AI

Dec 9, 2019 |

One of the biggest roadblocks that could prevent the widespread adoption of AI is explaining how it works. Deep neural networks, in particular, are extremely complex and resist clear description, which is a problem when it comes to ensuring that decisions made by AI are made fairly and free of human bias.

Simplifying the Big Data Lake Experiences in the Cloud

Oct 16, 2019 |

The cloud is a hot spot for big data lakes these days, thanks largely to the greater technological simplicity and lower upfront costs of getting started in the public cloud. Read more…

Google Adds ‘Structured Signals’ to Model Training

Sep 4, 2019 |

An effort to bring structure and meaning to huge volumes of varied data is being used to improve training of neural networks.

The technique, dubbed Neural Structured Learning (NSL) attempts to leverage what developers call “structured signals.” In model training, those signals represent the connections or similarities among labeled and unlabeled data samples. Read more…

MIT Aims to Ease AI Programming

Jul 2, 2019 |

A new AI programming language seeks to ease the process of writing inference algorithms and other predictive models without the hassle of grinding out complicated equations and code.

Among the goals of the probabilistic programming system dubbed “Gen” is making it easier for coding novices to write models and algorithms for broader AI applications such as computer vision and robotics. Read more…

Facebook Releases Another Deep Learning Tool

May 22, 2019 |

Facebook has released to open-source developers a deep learning framework that does double duty for computer vision and language tasks.

Built on its PyTorch framework, Facebook is positioning Pythia as supporting “multitasking” for vision and language “multimodal AI models.” Among its capabilities are identifying visual data and automatically generating image captions, company developers said this week. Read more…

Quobyte Plugs TensorFlow Into Scale-Out File System

Apr 16, 2019 |

Quobyte designed its file system with scalability in mind. It also designed it to handle multiple types of files and workload without burdening human administrators with extra complexity. Both of those characteristics are at play with today’s addition of a TensorFlow plug-in for machine learning workloads on the Quobyte Data Center File System. Read more…

Product Naming with Deep Learning

Apr 4, 2019 |

We do not usually associate artificial intelligence (AI) with creativity. Generally, AI algorithms are used to automatize repetitive tasks or predict new outcomes based on previously seen examples. The creative process can sometimes be repetitive and tedious, too. Read more…

Apache Spark Is Great, But It’s Not Perfect

Apr 3, 2019 |

Apache Spark is one of the most widely used tools in the big data space, and will continue to be a critical piece of the technology puzzle for data scientists and data engineers for the foreseeable future. Read more…

Startup MemVerge Combines Memory, Storage

Apr 2, 2019 |

A startup combining persistent memory and data storage has emerged from stealth mode with a platform running on chip maker Intel’s Optane architecture.

MemVerge claims to have invented what it calls “memory-converged infrastructure” that eliminates barriers between memory and storage. Read more…

RAPIDS Momentum Builds with Analytics, Cloud Backing

Mar 19, 2019 |

Nvidia’s RAPIDS data science libraries picked up additional support this week from a roster of cloud, server and workstation vendors along with professional services giant Accenture.

Nvidia also announced that Apache Spark creator Databricks will integrate RAPIDS into its analytics platform. Read more…
