Machine Learning is the Solution to the Big Data Problem Caused by the IoT - IT Peer Network


In more complex situations, a machine learning algorithm may build a complex model based on big data from transactions across the entire population of users to improve the accuracy of fraud detection. Developers can extract maximum performance from Intel hardware by using the library of math kernels and optimized algorithms from Intel called Intel Data Analytics Acceleration Library (Intel DAAL) and Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL). By using the Intel-optimized frameworks supported by Intel MKL, I've seen customers get performance on deep learning network topologies including convolutional neural networks (CNN) and recurrent neural networks (RNN) that is an order of magnitude greater than running these frameworks un-optimized on commodity CPUs. For qualified organizations, we can provide test and development platforms based on the Intel Xeon Phi processor, software, tools and training, as well as reference architectures and blueprints to accelerate the deployment of enterprise-grade solutions.

Intel Launches 'Knights Landing' Phi Family for HPC, Machine Learning


From ISC 2016 in Frankfurt, Germany, this week, Intel Corp. launched the second-generation Xeon Phi product family, formerly code-named Knights Landing, aimed at HPC and machine learning workloads. "We're not just a specialized programming model," said Intel's General Manager, HPC Compute and Networking, Barry Davis in a hand-on technical demo held at ISC. "Knights Landing" also puts integrated on-package memory in a processor, which benefits memory bandwidth and overall application performance. The Pascal P100 GPU for NVLink-optimized servers offers 5.3 teraflops of double-precision floating point performance, and the PCIe version supports 4.7 teraflops of double-precision.

Scary and fascinating: The future of big data


ZDNet recently spoke to Bernard Marr, author of the book, Big Data: Using smart big data analytics and metrics to make better decisions and improve performance, to see what's next for the technology. People thought that if Google is sharing all this hospital information then Google will know too much about me. What fascinates me is combining big data with machine learning and especially natural language processing, where computers do the analysis by themselves to find things like new disease patterns, to find them in the data. A lot of these big companies -- companies like Google, Amazon, and so on -- the people who run those companies will become richer and richer and most of the others will not be able to participate in wealth generation.

Real-time signal: Traditional recommender systems for Big Data are based on batch computation. What do we do for those will a small user base and little traffic? Our R&D team of close to 300 engineers is building the next generation digital advertising technologies that allow us to manage billions of ad impressions every day. A few figures: â 15 datacenters (8 with computing capacity 7 dedicated to network connectivity) Â across US, EU, APAC â More than 15K servers, running a mix of Linux and Windows â Two of the largest Hadoop clusters in Europe each with close to 40PB of storage and 30.000 cores â 30B HTTP requests and close to 3B unique banners displayed per day â Close to 1M HTTP requests per second handled during peak times â 40Gbps of bandwidth, half of it through peering exchanges We are located in the heart of Paris.

Distributed Deep Learning with Caffe Using a MapR Cluster


Google, Baidu, and Microsoft have the resources to build dedicated deep learning clusters that give the deep learning algorithms a level of processing power that both accelerates training time as well as increases their model's accuracy. Yahoo, however, has taken a slightly different approach, by moving away from a dedicated deep learning cluster and combining Caffe with Spark. The ML Big Data team's CaffeOnSpark software has allowed them to run the entire process of building and deploying a deep learning model onto a single cluster. The MapR Converged Data Platform is the ideal platform for this project, giving you all the power of distributed Caffe on a cluster with enterprise-grade robustness, enabling you to take advantage of the MapR high performance file system.

5 Ways Machine Learning Is Reshaping Our World


More importantly, however, Google and its competitors are moving towards keying their search algorithms to understand natural speech as well, in anticipation of more and more voice search. But new machine learning algorithms are making more accurate, real-time translations possible.

Making Deep Learning accessible on Openstack


This week at the Openstack Developers Summit we are excited to showcase how Canonical with IBM, Mesosphere, Skymind and Data Fellas are working together to make the opportunities of deep learning easier for everyone to access. This is important since we quickly encounter significant constraints when building and deploying big software and big data projects. That is why we have been working with partners such as IBM Power Systems, Mesosphere, Skymind and Data Fellas. The first thing that we created is a model with Juju, Canonical's Application Modelling Framework, that automates the process for building a complete, classic, deep learning stack.

ActualTech Media and SIOS Webinar: Using Machine Learning Analytics to Resolve Performance Issues in VMware Environments - SIOS


SIOS Technology Corp., the industry's leading provider of software products that help IT ensure the performance, efficiency, and high availability protection of business critical applications, today announced it will co-host a live one-hour webinar featuring ActualTech Media Partner and VMware vExpert Scott D. Lowe who will show how using new machine learning based analytics tools can resolve application performance issues in virtualized environments.

2025: Artificial Intelligence and the recruiting revolution


We then have to look at the future to find some comfort and try to understand if the big wave of innovation we see today (artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, wearables, big data, Internet of Things etc…) will impact positively on recruiting. On top of these benefits, it should also add a bit of quality: not everybody who says they want a project manager or an IT lead or a financial analyst means exactly the same thing, an artificial intelligence will navigate through business titles giving them a real meaning thanks to data clustering techniques; at the same time, it will be able to score and sort resumes without any individual bias. People data analytics: we have big data and we adopt analytics widely, it makes sense this trend will impact recruiting as well. Real time monitoring of performance and behavior: if a candidate can influence his digital identity, the most important information for any company will anyway come from his / her past performance and behavior.

Demystifying Machine Learning Part 1


The most effective way to define machine learning is to compare it with traditional computer programming. In traditional computer programming, one writes specific instructions for the computer to process the input it is provided and produce an output. For example, the input can be an application for a credit card, the computer program is an instruction to process this application, extract the useful pieces of information, compare it with other data and produce an output, which in this case would be a recommendation to accept or reject the credit card application. In contrast, a machine learning program does not have a specific instruction set on which credit card applications to accept or reject, but instead would learn from the input data it has been provided with and progressively improve its performance automatically through experience.
