Is Tesla Entering Machine Learning As A Service Market? – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Tesla may be introducing machine-learning training as a web service with its upcoming'Dojo' supercomputer, CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter. Project Dojo was initially revealed by Musk last year and is a supercomputer which Tesla has been working on. The supercomputer has been designed to ingest massive amounts of video data and perform massive levels of unsupervised training on the visual data. The goal of Dojo will be to be able to take in vast amounts of data and train at a video level and do massive unsupervised training of vast amounts of video data. Dojo uses our own chips & a computer architecture optimized for neural net training, not a GPU cluster.


AI Computing Boom Drives Growth for NVIDIA

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is one of the hottest technology trends for 2017. And perhaps no company in the AI sector is hotter than NVIDIA, which has pushed from the desktop into the data center, evolving into a major player in high performance computing. NVIDIA's graphics processing (GPU) technology has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of the rise of specialized computing, gaining traction with workloads in supercomputing, artificial intelligence (AI) and connected cars. This trend is expected to accelerate in 2017, with more custom chips being introduced to target these workloads. After building a major beachhead in hyperscale data centers, NVIDIA's ambitions now extend to the enterprise data center.


Nvidia's screaming Tesla P100 GPU will power one of the world's fastest computers

PCWorld

It didn't take long for Nvidia's monstrous Tesla P100 GPU to make its mark in an ongoing race to build the world's fastest computers. Just a day after Nvidia's CEO said he was "friggin' excited" to introduce the Tesla P100, the company announced its fastest GPU ever would be in a supercomputer called Piz Daint. Roughly 4,500 of the GPUs will be installed in the supercomputer, which will be built at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center in Switzerland. Piz Daint will a deliver peak performance of 7.8 teraflops, which would make it the seventh-fastest computer in the world. The fastest in the world is the Tianhe-2 in China, which delivers a peak performance of 54.9 petaflops, according to the Top500 list released in November.

Just a day after Nvidia's CEO said he was "friggin' excited" to introduce the Tesla P100, the company announced its fastest GPU ever would be used to upgrade a supercomputer called Piz Daint. Roughly 4,500 of the GPUs will be installed in the supercomputer at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center in Switzerland. Piz Daint already has a peak performance of 7.8 petaflops, making it the seventh-fastest computer in the world. The fastest in the world is the Tianhe-2 in China, which has a peak performance of 54.9 petaflops, according to the Top500 list released in November.


It's Official. Tesla Uses NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI Computing Platform

#artificialintelligence

Heart of the Tesla's new autonomous driving hardware, that some day will enable fully self-driving cars, is the latest NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI computing platform (see live presentation of it in action below). NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 is the open AI car computing platform that enables automakers and their tier 1 suppliers to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. For NVIDIA, DRIVE PX 2 is now in full production as Tesla requires thousands of units each month for manufacturing of the Model S and Model X, soon that number could be tens of thousands per month when the Model 3 assembly starts later next year. Tesla Motors has announced that all Tesla vehicles -- Model S, Model X, and the upcoming Model 3 -- will now be equipped with an on-board "supercomputer" that can provide full self-driving capability. The computer delivers more than 40 times the processing power of the previous system.
