AI arms race with Google continues.
This afternoon Microsoft announced Brainwave, an FPGA-based system for ultra-low latency deep learning in the cloud. Early benchmarking indicates that when using Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs, Brainwave can sustain 39.5 Teraflops on a large gated recurr...
OK, perhaps the events of the last few months have only moved the needle a bit, but the fact remains that we take a heck of a lot of pictures of ourselves with our hands covering our faces. And it turns out that’s a fairly serious problem for facial recognition. Read More
The startup behind the Prisma style transfer app is shifting focus onto the b2b space, building tools for developers that draw on its expertise using neural networks and deep learning technology to power visual effects on mobile devices. Read More
The Documenting Hate Project is an eye-opening panorama of U.S. hate.
ThoughtSpot makes data analytics software for businesses with a Google-like search tool.
The document management company is using Google's artificial intelligence technology.
Microsoft wants to build autonomous tech for aircraft that require little to no power to fly. It just completed tests in the Nevada desert of gliders equipped with self-guidance systems that help them track regions of rising hot air and predict their movement, with the aim of staying up in the air for as long as possible. These tests showed that Microsoft’s system for riding the wind holds… Read More
We knew that Andrew Ng had more than just a series of deep learning courses up his sleeve when he announced the first phase of his deeplearning.ai last week. It’s clear now that the turn of Ng’s three part act is a $150 million venture capital fund, first noted by PEHub, targeting AI investments. Ng, who formerly founded Google’s Brain Team and served as chief scientist at… Read More
