Raspberry Pi development kit opens up voice and AI in the IoT


The Knowles AISonic IA8201 kit creates a single tool to streamline design, development, and testing of technologies for the IoT and Industry4.0. The kit is built around the Knowles AISonic IA8201 Audio Edge Processor with two Tensilica-based, audio-centric DSP cores; one for high-power compute and AI/ML applications, and the other for very low-power, always-on processing of sensor inputs. The IA8201 has 1MB of RAM on-chip that allows for high bandwidth processing of advanced, always-on contextually aware ML use-cases and memory to support multiple algorithms. Using the Knowles open DSP platform, the kit includes a library of onboard audio algorithms and AI/ML libraries. Far field audio applications can be built using the available ultra-low-power voice wake, beamforming, custom keywords, and background noise elimination algorithms from Knowles algorithm partners such as Amazon Alexa, Sensory, Retune, and Alango to open up the design possibilities and ensure the freedom needed to support a wide range of voice and audio customization.

Top Cheapest Artificial Intelligence Stocks with Big Prospects in 2021


Investments in 2021 will be quite beneficial if you can get these cheapest stocks of artificial intelligence. Here is a list of the cheapest artificial intelligence stocks. Leading graphics chip company Nvidia has taken advantage of the AI boom, with its graphics cards becoming the de facto standard in data centers around the world. Machine learning's training phase demands a lot of computing power; the phase that follows, the inference phase, requires less. Graphics processing unit (GPU) chips, used primarily for rendering video games, support both phases well.

NVIDIA Invites Developers To Test Experimental DLSS Models Directly From Company's Supercomputer


NVIDIA recently began inviting developers to test the newest build for DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and submit their experiences and findings to the developer forum on NVIDIA's site. NVIDIA DLSS is "a deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates and generates beautiful, sharp images for your games. It gives you the performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolution. DLSS is powered by dedicated AI processors on RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores." NVIDIA is enabling developers to explore and evaluate experimental AI models for Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

How does Edge AI work?


Edge AI means making the AI algorithms run locally at the source on a hardware device(edge). Today most of the AI models are cloud native. Cloud has made AI more accessible by providing support for infrastructure, better scalability and access to different services. These models are computationally heavy and to bring them on a resource constraint device is a challenging task. So, why do we even need to take these models to edge?

How Apple TV's 'Foundation' is different from the books


To say Apple TV's Foundation diverges from its source material would be a bit of an understatement. An adaptation of Isaac Asimov's classic science fiction novels, Foundation is less interested in following its source material to the letter than it is in creating a story within Asimov's universe that would make good TV. The basic plot remains the same: mathematician Hari Seldon (Jared Harris) foretells the fall of the Galactic Empire thanks to his theory of psychohistory. Knowing the fall is inevitable, he establishes the Foundation in order to preserve knowledge and, hopefully, civilization in the years to come. Foundation takes this story and tweaks it in some pretty big ways, which makes sense when considering the scale of Asimov's work.

IBM Research Says Analog AI Will Be 100X More Efficient. Yes, 100X.


IBM AI Hardware Research Center has delivered signifiant digital AI logic, and now turns their attention to solving AI problems in an entirely new way. The IBM AI Hardware Research Center is located in the TJ Watson Center near Yorktown Heights, New ... [ ] York. Gary Fritz, Cambrian-AI Research Analyst, contributed to this article. AI is showing up in nearly every aspect of business. Larger and more complex Deep Neural Nets (DNNs) keep delivering ever-more-remarkable results. The challenge, as always, is power and performance.

3 Top Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Buy in September


Many investors might think of sentient robots when tech pundits discuss the booming artificial intelligence (AI) market. However, intelligent robots only represent a tiny silver of a worldwide AI market that is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 35.6% from 2021 to 2026, according to Facts and Factors. A large portion of that market actually revolves around algorithms and software platforms that help companies make data-driven decisions, automate repetitive tasks, streamline their operations, and cut costs. Let's examine three top AI stocks that will benefit from the market's expansion. Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is the world's top producer of discrete GPUs.

'Finch' trailer sees man, machine and dog try to flee climate change


Apple offered a brief glimpse of the Tom Hanks-led Finch at its recent iPhone 13 launch event, and now you can watch the first full trailer for the upcoming sci-fi film. The clip sets the stage for the story that follows. A solar flare knocked out most of the technology on Earth and left much of the US a desolate wasteland. Hanks' character, the titular Finch, survives in an underground shelter with his only companion, a dog named Goodyear, until he builds a new Android companion. The three of them eventually leave their home when it becomes threatened by the sandstorms that dominate the world of the movie.

Tom Hanks survives the apocalypse with a dog and robot in 'Finch' trailer


In director Miguel Sapochnik's film, Hanks plays Finch, a robotics engineer who journeys to find a new home for his newfound dog friend and newly built robot (played by Caleb Landry Jones) after a catastrophic solar event destroys the land, covering it all in sand. Amid this genuinely terrifying situation, Finch teaches his canine companion some table manners and creates a humanoid robot from his hideout. As the three try to outrun an approaching storm, they become an unlikely team. Finch comes to Apple TV on Nov. 5.

AI hardware pioneer Cerebras expands access in partnership with cloud vendor Cirrascale


The battle for artificial intelligence hardware keeps moving through phases. Three years ago, chip startups such as Habana Labs, Graphcore, and Cerebras Systems grabbed the spotlight with special semiconductors designed expressly for deep learning. Those vendors then moved on to selling whole systems, with newcomers such as SambaNova Systems starting out with that premise. Now, the action is proceeding to a new phase, where vendors are partnering with cloud operators to challenge the entrenched place of Nvidia as the vendor of choice in cloud AI. Cerebras on Thursday announced a partnership with cloud operator Cirrascale to allow users to rent capacity on Cerebras's CS-2 AI machine running in Cirrascale cloud data centers.
