Intel's hardware for accelerating AI computation is finally on its way to customers. The company announced today that its first-generation Neural Network Processor, code named "Lake Crest," will be rolling out to a small set of partners in the near future to help them drastically accelerate how much machine learning work they can do. The NNPs are designed to very quickly tackle the math that underpins artificial intelligence applications, specifically neural networks, a currently popular branch of machine learning. One of the big problems with the large, deep neural networks that are popular right now is that they can be very computationally intensive, which makes them harder to test and deploy rapidly. At first, the NNPs will only get released to a small number of intel partners who the company plans to begin outfitting before the end of this year.

With the exponential growth of BCS and big data, a new subsidiary named ML Labs has formed, specialising in providing machine learning and deep learning algorithm solutions to clients looking to begin their journey through big data and analytics.
The main point is to combine mathematical operation together to form a workflow of choice. The graph takes care of evaluating the gradient of all the inputs to ease up setting up the minimizer. I have aimed for the library to be simple and transparent so that it would be easy to understand and modify to fit individual needs. Currently, supports most of the useful matrix operations, the Adam stochastic minimizer as well as modules for simplified deployment of dense, convolution and recurrent (vanilla and LSTM) networks.
Instead of preprogramming software to complete a specific task, as narrow AI does, machine learning uses algorithms that allow a computer to learn from the vast amounts of data it receives so it can complete a task on its own. International Business Machines uses deep learning powered by NVIDIA's graphics processing units (GPUs) to comb through medical images to find cancer cells. The company makes the graphics processors that are integral in AI, machine learning, and deep learning, and lots of companies already look to NVIDIA's hardware to make their AI software a reality. The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Alphabet (A shares), Alphabet (C shares), Amazon, Facebook, and Nvidia.
