Multiple facets of technology are trending towards artificial intelligence these days, in applications both big and small. As that's been happening, graphics processing units (GPUs) have taken on the heavy lifting, though researchers at Rice University have cooked up a new machine learning scheme they say is more efficient when run on central processing units (CPUs). It should come as no surprise that the computer scientists from Rice University are being supported by collaborators from Intel, which has a vested interest in anything that can tap into its CPUs. There's a lot of money to be made by leveraging AI—NVIDIA, for example, reported a 41 percent increase in its fourth quarter revenue,... Read more...
