Zoom Rooms go as a service with hardware partners DTEN , Neat , Poly and Yealink


Picking the right tech vendors for your small or medium-sized business can be hard, especially with the cloud and everything-as-a-service providers giving you access to enterprise-level IT. ZDNet helps SMBs build a technology stack that promotes innovation and enables growth. Zoom Video Communications has teamed up with four video conferencing hardware makers to launch Zoom Hardware as a Service designed to make Zoom Rooms and Zoom Phone more available to enterprises. The hardware providers in the package are DTEN, Neat, Poly, and Yealink. The hardware and Zoom bundles give tech buyers a monthly fixed price that varies by system and support by Zoom.

Nvidia and MIT's AI can clean up your noisy photos


If you've ever taken photos after sundown, you're probably familiar with the'noise' that distorts your pictures with colored specks. It's possible to fix your images to some degree with software – but an AI developed by Nvidia, MIT and Aalto University can go much further – without ever having seen noise-free photographs. The Noise2Noise AI was trained using 50,000 pictures – as well as MRI scans and computer-generated images -that had randomized noise added to them. In their paper, the researchers show that their AI can successfully remove enough noise to make the pictures usable again, with detail and clarity that's remarkably close to the source images. The AI could likely find use in software for cleaning up noisy photos captured in low-light conditions on phones and cameras, as well as improving astronomical imagery and MRI scanning.

Nvidia uses AI to clean up messy photos


Researchers from Nvidia, MIT, and Aalto University are using artificial intelligence to reduce noise in photos. The team used 50,000 images from the ImageNet dataset to train its AI system for reconstructing photos, and the system is able to remove noise from an image even though it has never seen the image without noise. Named Noise2Noise, the AI system was created using deep learning and draws its intelligence from 50,000 images from the ImageNet database. Each came as a clean, high-quality image without noise but was manipulated to add randomized noise. Computer-generated images and MRI scans were also used to train Noise2Noise.
