Over the past decades, computer technology has been developing with an extremely high exponential rate. Humanity develops the power of computer systems implementing their application into all spheres of our daily life (production, education, medicine, economics, etc.) using devices. Thanks to the progress and continuous development of science and technology, the scope of problems to be solved are growing, and the sizes of these most used devices (computers) are decreasing. So could we assume before that computer programs/machines will be able to think, or in other words, have a certain level of thinking equivalent to the human one? Indeed, human intelligence, most likely, does not have the same computational speed as computers, but one thing is important -- a human thinks abstractly, they can solve problems, leaving some details out of the account. In addition, human intelligence can generate ideas, as well as introduce innovations.
Purchases you make through our links may earn us a commission. I don't know about you, but I've never gotten a techy or tech-adjacent gift I wasn't excited about--it's true. Opening up a gift and getting a new pair of headphones or a fun gadget I wasn't expecting is almost always fun, even if it isn't something I thought I wanted. That's the problem with trying to buy a fun new tech gift for a giftee: How do you single out the small margin of great products from the ocean of sub-par stuff? Easy--you check out our picks below. Reviewed tests tech all year long and this list is chock full of our favorite gadgets. Roku's fancy "Ultra" media streaming device has been our favorite for a couple years running now, and for good reason. Processing is snappy and the UI is extremely friendly and intuitive, making it easy to settle in for a night of Netflix (or Hulu, or Amazon Prime, or YouTube, or Twitch, or anything else) without a hitch.
Talking Machines podcasts feature conversations in today's popular areas of machine learning. They appeal to both machine learning professionals and enthusiasts. Talks are usually about NIPS (Neural Computing Systems), and guests are usually top practitioners. Data Skeptic explains certain concepts in data science in short sections. Longer interviews with practitioners and experts on interesting data-related topics are also included.
One wonders where the rest of AI accelerator crowd is? (Cerebras (CS-1), AMD (Radeon), Groq (Tensor Streaming Processor), SambaNova (Reconfigurable Dataflow Unit), Google's (TPU) et. For the moment, Nvidia rules the MLPerf roost. It posted the top performances in categories in which it participated, dominating the'closed' datacenter and closed edge categories. MLPerf's closed categories impose system/network restrictions intended to ensure apples-to-apples comparisons among participating systems. The'open' versions of categories permit customization.
Juniper CTO Raj Yavatkar joins the Light Reading podcast to discuss Juniper's strategy to use machine learning and AI to help customers build "self-driving" enterprise networks. The acquisition of Mist Systems brought that capability to Wi-Fi access points, he explains. Once Juniper completes its acquisition of 128 Technology, it can improve on its AI-driven approach to its SD-WAN and WAN assurance offerings, too. You can find all of Light Reading's editorial and custom audio programs on Apple Podcasts, Google, SoundCloud or Spotify.
Audio is also available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. On this episode of the Workday Podcast, I talked with Trenton Cycholl, vice president of business technology at Citrix, about how the organization is using machine learning to close the skills gap. You can also find more podcast episodes here. Josh Krist: Before we get started, can you tell me a little bit about your background and your current role at Citrix? I started my career working with structured data sources. I didn't know at the time that those data sources would later be the foundational pillars and centers of intelligence that companies would use to build future technology innovations, like AI.
By now, you've probably heard about 5G and the new high-speed cellular networks that are spreading to every corner of the country. But what's all the hype about, and is it really as groundbreaking as your cellular provider makes it seem? Here's a simple breakdown of what 5G is, and how it works. As the term implies, 5G is the fifth generation of wireless telecommunications. If you've had a cell phone for the last decade or so, you probably remember the switch from 3G to 4G, which started in the early 2010s.
The Bose Home 300's sleek design fits in well with most decor. We weren't sure what to expect upon opening the Bose Home 300 for testing, but we were pleasantly surprised on almost every level. While the sound quality can't quite compete with the (much larger) Echo Studio, the Bose Home 300 allows users to choose between Alexa or Google Assistant; it has handy preset buttons on the top of the speaker; and it can stream audio over Bluetooth, AirPlay, WiFi, or via an old-school auxiliary cable. Through its app and smart assistants, the Bose Home 300 can play music from a large number of streaming services, such as Spotify, TuneIn, Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, and even Apple Music via Airplay or Bluetooth. The compatible music and podcast sources will vary a bit depending on which smart assistant you choose (you can only use one assistant at a time, however it is very easy to switch in the Bose app). Though not any larger, this speaker is much louder than most of the other smart speakers we included in this roundup.
The Justice Department says Google CEO Sundar Pichai (left) met privately with Apple chief Tim Cook in 2018 to discuss how their two companies could collaborate. The Justice Department says Google CEO Sundar Pichai (left) met privately with Apple chief Tim Cook in 2018 to discuss how their two companies could collaborate. Buried on page 36 of the Justice Department lawsuit accusing Google of abusing its monopoly power is this remarkable figure: $8 billion to $12 billion. That's the hefty sum Google allegedly paid Apple for one of the most prized pieces of real estate in the world of online search: default status on iPhones and all other Apple devices. Justice Department investigators say Apple, which does not have its own search engine, hammered out a multiyear deal making Google the default search engine on all iPhones and other Apple products.
