New InfiniteIO Platform Reduces Latency and Accelerates Performance for Machine Learning, AI and Analytics

#artificialintelligence

InfiniteIO, the world's fastest metadata platform to reduce application latency, today announced the new Application Accelerator, which delivers dramatic performance improvements for critical applications by processing file metadata independently from on-premises storage or cloud systems. The new platform provides organizations across industries the lowest possible latency for their mission-critical applications, such as AI/machine learning, HPC and genomics, while minimizing disruption to IT teams. This press release features multimedia. "Bandwidth and I/O challenges have been largely overcome, yet reducing latency remains a significant barrier to improving application performance," said Henry Baltazar, vice president of research at 451 Research. "Metadata requests are a large part of file system latency, making up the vast majority of requests to a storage system or cloud. InfiniteIO's approach to abstracting metadata from file data offers IT managers a nondisruptive way to immediately accelerate application performance."


Machine Learning Algorithm Cheat Sheet - Azure Machine Learning

In supervised learning, each data point is labeled or associated with a category or value of interest. An example of a categorical label is assigning an image as either a'cat' or a'dog'. An example of a value label is the sale price associated with a used car. The goal of supervised learning is to study many labeled examples like these, and then to be able to make predictions about future data points. For example, identifying new photos with the correct animal or assigning accurate sale prices to other used cars.

This was such a great opportunity to have Romania on the map of #Dell #Safe Cities world tour.


Chinese auto executive identifies what's holding back self-driving cars

#artificialintelligence

The technology behind self-driving cars has advanced in recent years, but the vehicles still have a long way to go before becoming a common feature on the roads, said an executive from a a major Chinese automaker. Some of the hurdles impeding self-driving cars include legal restrictions, people's mobility habits, and technology that's still changing and maturing, Feng Xingya, president of Guangzhou Automobile Group or GAC, said on Monday at CNBC's East Tech West conference in the Nansha district of Guangzhou city, China. "A self-driving system is a developing concept," Feng said in Mandarin translated by CNBC. He added that the technology behind such vehicles are still being developed, with breakthroughs coming in batches.


DeepFakes, stories written by AI - who can you trust?

#artificialintelligence

Just take a moment to think about how many times you blindly trust someone or something every single day. From the very simple things you might not realise, like trusting your alarm will wake you up or the electricity provider has honoured it's obligation to maintain a steady electricity supply to your house, meaning your breakfast hasn't spoiled over night. Perhaps you're thinking about the trust you share between the members of your household, or that your neighbour will bring your bins in and feed your cats whilst you are on holiday. Did you think about how you trust that your government will support you in times of need, or that when you go to the shops your card will work or the money in your pocket will still be valid? Perhaps you thought about fake-news, as this is a hot topic recently?
