GPU vs FPGA: The Battle For AI Hardware Rages On


They are not very new and have been around for a while. The main differentiating factor is that they can be reconfigured as opposed to the other chips. It allows for specifying hardware description language (HDL) that can be in turn configured in a way that matches the requirements of specific tasks or applications. It is known to consume less power and offer better performance. It also offers advantages such as using OpenCL that makes programming quicker and easier.

Image Processing Applications on Raspberry Pi - From Scratch


Image Processing Applications on Raspberry Pi is a beginner course on the newly launched Raspberry Pi 3 and is fully compatible with Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi Zero. The course is ideal for those who are new to the Raspberry Pi and want to explore more about it. You will learn the components of Raspberry Pi, connecting components to Raspberry Pi, installation of NOOBS operating system, basic Linux commands, Python programming and building Image Processing applications on Raspberry Pi.

Portwell launches advanced SFF embedded system board with Intel Celeron Processor J3455


The Portwell WUX-3455 delivers robust performance, yet it operates with thermal design power (TDP) under 6W/10W for fanless applications. It also supports a wide voltage of power input from 12V to 19V for rugged applications. With quad-core processing power via the Intel Celeron processor J3455, the Portwell WUX-3455 embedded system board is equipped with the ability to execute an extensive array of applications from digital signage in public spaces (stadiums, museums, transportation systems, corporate buildings, healthcare facilities, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and more), through manufacturing robots and machinery transforming industrial automation, to video analytics-based appliances enhancing intelligent digital security and surveillance, to end-to-end solutions for the ever-evolving and ever-expanding IoT use cases.

Lenovo ThinkStation P920 Workstation REVIEW IT Creations


Today we are reviewing Lenovo's top of the line ThinkStation P920 Workstation Tower. Yup, this is "The" pinnacle of ThinkStation technology, at least so far. The P920 handles the same complex applications supported on other workstations, and yes, I am talking about Independent Software Vendor certified applications. It's designed to compete against the HP Z8 G4 and Dell's Precision 7920 Tower Workstation, and there is definitely a case for that. There are three desktop workstations that make up Lenovo's ThinkStation line-up.

7 Industry-Shaking AI Startups You Should Know


Startups are powerful engineers of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, developing intelligent applications across industries. By leveraging the capabilities of robotics, hardware and high performance computing, startups are redrawing the maps of navigation, transportation, and supply-chain operations. NVIDIA is nurturing the entrepreneurship ecosystem through its Inception Program for AI Startups, connecting pioneers to a massive network of deep learning experts and thought leadership. Members of the program receive GPU hardware discounts and get the chance to try out the latest technology. At this year's GPU Technology Conference, the premier artificial intelligence and deep learning event, Inception members can take part in exclusive networking initiatives to share their emerging technologies.
