Los Angeles Times

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. is planning to lay off at least 5,000 employees, or about 10% of its workforce, according to a business media report. Bloomberg reported Thursday that the job cuts, which will occur in the U.S. and abroad, are expected to begin before the end of the year. HP Enterprise did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Times. HP Enterprise was created in 2015 as a result of Hewlett Packard Co.'s split into two companies. HP Inc. sells personal computers and printers; HP Enterprise focuses on commercial technology services and products.

HPE Introduces New Set of Artificial Intelligence Platforms and Services HPE Newsroom

#artificialintelligence

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) today announced new purpose-built platforms and services capabilities to help companies simplify the adoption of Artificial Intelligence, with an initial focus on a key subset of AI known as deep learning. Inspired by the human brain, deep learning is typically implemented for challenging tasks such as image and facial recognition, image classification and voice recognition. To take advantage of deep learning, enterprises need a high performance compute infrastructure to build and train learning models that can manage large volumes of data to recognize patterns in audio, images, videos, text and sensor data. Many organizations lack several integral requirements to implement deep learning, including expertise and resources; sophisticated and tailored hardware and software infrastructure; and the integration capabilities required to assimilate different pieces of hardware and software to scale AI systems. "We live in a world today where we're generating copious amounts of data, and deep learning can help unleash intelligence from this data," said Pankaj Goyal, vice president, Artificial Intelligence Business, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.


AI's next target could be NASA's mission control

In the iconic movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, astronaut Dave Bowman must deal with HAL 9000, a sentient artificial intelligence computer that operates his spaceship. The computer is all-knowing and all-controlling, saying at one point, "Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. It portends a dark future for automated AI and space travel. No one wants that outcome for real-world spacecraft and computers, but Hewlett-Packard Enterprise is starting to think about how to automate many spacecraft systems and outsource critical decisions to an on-board computer. Presently, with the International Space Station, flight controllers on Earth monitor the spacecraft's overall health continually, and flight directors relay information to astronauts on board when problems occur.
