IBM is showing off its first complete system-on-chip (SoC) designed to run and train deep learning models at a faster and more efficient clip than what general-purpose CPUs can achieve. Big Blue is calling it an Artificial Intelligence Unit (AIU) and one of the notable features is that clients can install it just as... Read more...
A Russian robot trained to play chess fractured a seven-year-old opponent's finger during the Moscow Chess Open tournament. This immediately conjures up concerns that the robot uprising has begun and this was a declaration of war against their flesh and blood creators, but rest assured, the reason for the unfortunate...

After unveiling its second generation Habana Gaudi2 AI processor last month with some preliminary performance figures, Intel has followed suit with internally run benchmarks showing its fancy accelerator outpacing NVIDIA's A100 GPU. According to Intel, its results demonstrate clear leadership training performance... Read more...
Did you ever stop and consider if that random bystander in Grand Theft Auto V had a family before you beat him to a pulp? Or what about the many guards in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, all of whom took an arrow to the knee—did you ask any of them if they need assistance? Of course not, because NPC aren't actual living...

According to AI Ethics Researcher, Blake Lemoine, Google's LaMDA AI chat bot tool wants to be considered sentient. Through conversations and research with Google's LaMDA, Lemoine claims that not only is it sentient, it wishes to be acknowledged as such, and even wants to be considered an employee at Google. One major... Read more...
We've playfully referenced Skynet probably a million times over the years (or thereabout), and it's always been in jest pertaining to some kind of deep learning development or achievement. We're hoping that turns out to be the case again, that conjuring up Skynet turns out to be a lighthearted joke to a real... Read more...
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Intel and its collaborators a contract to develop advanced simulation solutions for off-road autonomous ground vehicles. The hope is that these sims will reduce the significant gap that exists between on-road and off-road autonomous vehicle... Read more...
Intel is testing new AI software that will detect the emotions of students while they are in an online classroom setting, and some are not happy about it. The software is designed to run on top of Zoom and is a collaboration with Classroom Technologies' virtual school software called Class, and is being backed by... Read more...
There are a myriad of ways artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can and do improve the quality of life. One of the most important areas is healthcare, where AI has been employed to help detect medical conditions and treat them, in part by developing life saving drugs. But while drug discovery is an...

When IBM's Watson defeated two of the greatest Jeopardy players of all time with a $1 million pot up for grabs, we applauded. And when AI started beating up flesh and blood players at games like Quake III Arena and Gran Turismo, we stood by and watched in amazement. But have we been witnessing marvels of technological...

SK Hynix announced it has developed its first PIM (processing in memory) solution, which it plans to show off at the upcoming International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the same venue where Intel will talk about its Bonanza Mine crypto mining accelerator. These have nothing to do with one another, except... Read more...
NVIDIA has been making major inroads in the intelligent vehicle category with its DRIVE platform, and auto makers are taking notice. That includes Jaguar Land Rover, a Tata Motors subsidiary, which announced a multi-year strategic partnership with NVIDIA to build all future luxury Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles around...

Mark Zuckerberg and the gang over at Meta, the parent company to Facebook, have a new and powerful toy to play with courtesy of a collaboration with NVIDIA. Meta designed and NVIDIA built what is called the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), a massive supercomputer that once fully deployed will rank as the largest... Read more...
How we both create and view art is being changed right before our very eyes. Along with artificial intelligence (AI), LG OLED displays are being used to change the very landscape of the art world. When one thinks about an art exhibit, the images of exquisite paintings hanging on walls come to mind. Artist Refix... Read more...
Facebook's artificial intelligence division has announced a new long-term research project called Ego4D, which is an ambitious effort to expand the boundaries and capabilities of AI to understand and learn our habits from a first-person perspective, via AR glasses and headsets. The hardware aspect, while critical, is... Read more...
NVIDIA is thumping its chest over a round of impressive benchmark runs that highlight the potency of mixing its A100 accelerators with either Arm or x86 hardware. Regardless of the CPU platform, NVIDIA contends that its accelerators enable the "best results in AI inference," and it has another batch of benchmarks to... Read more...
Drivers contracted to make delivers for Amazon claim that special cameras installed in their delivery vans are unfairly dinging them for road violations that did not occur, resulting in loss of extra income and other bonuses that they might otherwise be eligible to receive. Amazon, meanwhile, says the cameras have led... Read more...
Most people would be happy just to get their mitts on a single GPU, in the current landscape. The US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is much more fortunate, having procured a whopping 2,240 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs (based on Ampere) for its Polaris supercomputer to "supercharge researcher and...

I have only dabbled in programming, and from my limited experience, I can appreciate that really good coding is an art form that not everyone possesses. Whether I have it or not, I can't say—I've never dived too deeply into programming to find out. If I ever do, Microsoft's new GitHub Copilot might prove to be a... Read more...
Scientists and researchers are forever on the pursuit of increasingly sophisticated artificial intelligence technologies, especially today, with AI playing such a big role in so many different products and services. One of the more interesting developments in AI has to do with nanowire networks being trained to solve... Read more...
During its GTC 2021 keynote today, NVIDIA unveiled a new product for high performance computing (HPC) clients, its first-ever data center CPU called Grace. Based on Arm's architecture, NVIDIA claims Grace serves up 10x better performance than the fastest servers on the market currently, for complex artificial... Read more...
How do you make high bandwidth memory (HBM) even better? Lower for the price, for one. But aside from that, infusing it with artificial intelligence (AI) processing power is a surefire way to make HBM even more attractive for certain market segments, and that is precisely what Samsung has done—it has developed the...
