If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
A processing unit (CPU, GPU or whatever) and RAM are typically separate things built on separate chips. But what if they were part of the same chip, all mixed together? That's exactly what Samsung did to create the world's first High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) with built-in AI processing hardware called HBM-PIM (for processing-in-memory). It took its HBM2 Aquabolt chips and added Programmable Computing Units (PCU) between the memory banks. These are relatively simple and operate on 16-bit floating point values with a limited instruction set – they can move data around and perform multiplications and additions.
No wins come at no cost. We often forget about this, though, and demand instant wins. This is an especially true story as the global community is seeking the Covid-19 vaccine and rapid business recovery. So, in this article, I will take you behind the scenes of the hottest tech trends and show you the background behind their "sweeping success." I hope this article will help you stay aware of the advancements that make headlines and remember that every success takes time.
Machine learning is changing the world, and it’s changing it fast. In just the last few years, it’s brought us virtual assistants that understand language, autonomous vehicles, new drug discoveries, AI-based triage for medical scans, handwriting recognition and more. One thing that machine learning shouldn’t be changing is the climate. The issue relates to how machine learning is developed. In […]
Artificial intelligence is a branch in computer science that deals with the simulation of intelligent behavior. It gives computers an ability to think and perform different tasks, such as humans and animals, while learning through the errors during this process. Artificial Intelligence is usually an algorithm built in such a way that permits the computer to perform tasks efficiently while making nominal errors. It uses personified knowledge by applying deep learning and machine learning algorithms while performing several tasks. Drug discovery is the preliminary step in the process of a novel drug identification and its therapeutic target. Artificial intelligence (AI) is commonly used in the healthcare industry for drug discovery.
Reston-based Fortune 500 defense contractor Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has hired Michael Scruggs as senior vice president of artificial intelligence, effective immediately. "In this newly created role, Scruggs will be responsible for driving organic growth through AI technology delivery and solutions development," SAIC said in a statement. "He will broaden SAIC's portfolio of AI technology delivery and customer relationships, as well as oversee strategic partnerships and development of the company's solutions related to predictive analytics, machine learning, robotic process automation, and intelligent edge." Scruggs formerly worked for IBM Corp., working in cloud, data science and AI divisions. SAIC employs more than 25,000 people and has pro forma annual revenues of $7.1 billion.
Nvidia reported revenues of $5.0 billion for its fourth fiscal quarter ended January 31, up 61% from a year earlier. The revenues and non-GAAP earnings per share of $3.10 beat expectations as new gaming hardware and AI products generated strong demand. A year ago, Nvidia reported non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.89 on revenues of $3.1 billion. The Santa Clara, California-based company makes graphics processing units (GPUs) that can be used for games, AI, and datacenter computing. While many businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, Nvidia has seen a boost in those areas.
More than 20 AI startups have banded together to create the AI Infrastructure Alliance in order to build a software and hardware stack for machine learning and adopt common standards. The alliance brings together companies like Algorithmia; Determined AI, which works with deep learning; data monitoring startup WhyLabs; and Pachyderm, a data science company that raised $16 million last year in a round led by M12, formerly Microsoft Ventures. A spokesperson for the alliance said partner organizations have raised about $200 million in funding from investors. Dan Jeffries, chief tech evangelist at Pachyderm, will serve as director of the alliance. He said the group began to form from conversations that started over a year ago.
Today, organizations move at a supernatural speed and your company's ability to do the same with constancy and universality is critical to accelerate growth. Beginning of April 2020, Microsoft launched hundreds of awaited Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven enhancements to fuel the next generation of customer-centric engagement. "The'AI' bits in these new features and apps come from several existing Azure AI services that Microsoft currently offers," reports ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley. Microsoft Business Applications President James Phillips says, "... these new capabilities expand a fast-growing set of applications powered by AI-driven insights, and further propel our vision to empower every organization to unify data across the business and use it to power personalized customer experiences and processes." At TMC we believe these 3 AI-powered updates will revolutionize how quickly big data can inform actionable insights which all departments can use in tandem to provide the best customer experience at every touch point.
Scientists are working on embryo analysis with computer algorithms to help build families. The world's first IVF baby was born in 1978 in the UK. Since then artificial reproductive technology has been refined and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about four million births, each year can be attributed to IVF in the U.S. This equates to 1%-2% of all births in the U.S. annually. While many people had to put family planning on pause for some of the pandemic developments in fertility treatment have continued.
