Does Artificial Intelligence Require Specialized Processors? - The New Stack

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence: everybody is talking about it, and the as-of-yet unrealized possibilities of the technology are fueling a renaissance in the hardware and software industry. Hardware and software companies -- including Intel, NVidia, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Facebook, Qualcomm, ARM and many others -- are racing to build the next AI hardware platform or fighting to maintain their lead. AI, and deep learning (a sub-field of neural networks) in particular is an inherently non-Von Neumann process, and the prospect of having a processor more closely tailored to the specific needs of neural networks is appealing. But, I like to think before acting, especially before diving into a potentially very expensive hardware project. Should the AI industry build a specialized deep learning chip, and, if so, what should it look like?


Lenovo Reaches Tentative Settlement Over Superfish PC Adware

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology

Lenovo Group Ltd. LNVGY -1.12% has reached a tentative $3.5 million settlement to resolve accusations that it had installed on some consumer laptops a type of ad-injecting software that could give criminals a way to steal consumers' personal information. The Federal Trade Commission and 32 state attorneys general accused Lenovo of selling some 750,000 laptops, beginning in August 2014, with a software developed by another company, Superfish, that delivered pop-up ads from retail partners and made product recommendations based on websites visited. Lenovo had said the software was intended as a browser add-on that worked as a visual search engine to make shopping online easier. Consumers were considered to have "opted in" if they clicked on the pop-up's "X" close button or anywhere else on the screen, according to the FTC complaint. Unbeknown to consumers, the software acted as a "man-in-the-middle," breaking secured connections, for example between a user's laptop and a bank's website.


Nvidia CEO: "Software is eating the world, but AI is going to eat software"

#artificialintelligence

Tech companies and investors have recently been piling money into artificial intelligence--and plenty has been trickling down to chip maker Nvidia. The company's revenues have climbed as it has started making hardware customized for machine-learning algorithms and use cases such as autonomous cars. At the company's annual developer conference in San Jose, California, this week, the company's CEO Jensen Huang spoke to MIT Technology Review about how the machine-learning revolution is just starting. Nvidia has benefitted from a rapid explosion of investment in machine learning from tech companies. Can this rapid growth in the use cases for machine learning continue?

In its fourth quarter earnings release, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company reported revenue of $2.17 billion, up 55% year over year, on earnings per share of $1.13, up 117% a year ago. Wall Street analysts estimated $2.11 billion in revenue on EPS of 83 cents. Traditionally, the company's processors have been mostly used to power the latest gaming graphics, but the chips have become popular to run AI software in the data center and autonomous vehicles. A specific branch of AI, called deep learning, is where Nvidia's processors particularly shine.


5 Tech Predictions for 2017

TIME - Tech

I've been writing a tech predictions column for nearly 30 years now. I study our research and look for trends and information that give me hints of what I believe might be the hot topics, trends or issues that will impact the tech industry in the coming year. It's well known that Silicon Valley was generally not a big supporter of President-elect Donald Trump. However, technology executives are pragmatic, and they know they need to deal with his administration if they want to see their tech agenda advanced over the next four (or eight) years. Trump's recent meeting with leaders like Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX and others allowed these leaders to share with Trump their concerns.
