Boost your tech career with new electronics, Raspberry Pi, and robotics skills for only $20

ZDNet

You may be surprised to learn that the top tech companies – Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook – hire just as many programmers who have learned their skills from bootcamps as they do college graduates. So if you've started down the path of a tech career and want to take it to the next level by boosting your electronics, programming, and robotics experience, you can train at your own pace with The 2021 Raspberry Pi & Arduino Bootcamp Bundle for just $19.99. Here are a selection, with prices ranging from around $30 to over $400. You need no experience whatsoever with Raspberry Pi to start with "Raspberry Pi For Beginners: Complete Course". You'll learn how to use Python 3, Flask, GPIOs, and more to build incredible projects.


How to Use NVIDIA GPU Accelerated Libraries - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

If you are working on an AI project, then it's time to take advantage of NVIDIA GPU accelerated libraries if you aren't doing so already. It wasn't until the late 2000s when AI projects became viable with the assistance of neural networks trained by GPUs to drastically speed up the process. Since that time, NVIDIA has been creating some of the best GPUs for deep learning, allowing GPU accelerated libraries to become a popular choice for AI projects. If you are wondering how you can take advantage of NVIDIA GPU accelerated libraries for your AI projects, this guide will help answer questions and get you started on the right path. When it comes to AI or, more broadly, machine learning, using GPU accelerated libraries is a great option.


Graphcore brings new competition to Nvidia in latest MLPerf AI benchmarks

ZDNet

MLPerf, the benchmark suite of tests for how long it takes to train a computer to perform machine learning tasks, has a new contender with the release Wednesday of results showing Graphcore, the Bristol, U.K.-based startup, notching respectable times versus the two consistent heavyweights, Nvidia and Google. Graphcore, which was founded five years ago and has $710 million in financing, didn't take the top score in any of the MLPerf tests, but it reported results that are significant when compared with the other two in terms of number of chips used. Moreover, when leaving aside Google's submission, which isn't commercially available, Graphcore was the only competitor to enter into the top five commercially available results alongside Nvidia. "It's called the democratization of AI," said Matt Fyles, the head of software for Graphcore, in a press briefing. Companies that want to use AI, he said, "can get a very respectable result as an alternative to Nvidia, and it only gets better over time, we'll keep pushing our system."

Nvidia's Canvas AI Painting Tool Turns Color Blobs into Realistic Imaginaries

#artificialintelligence

Nvidia's New Canvas tool, which is now available as a beta-free version, is a real-time painting tool GauGAN that can be used by anyone with an NVIDIA RTX GPU. It allows creators to create a rough landscape by painting blobs and then it fills it with convincingly photorealistic content. Each distinct color on the tool represents a different type of feature: water, mountains, grass, ruins, and others. The crude sketch is passed to a generative adversarial network when colors are blobbed onto the canvas. GANs essentially pass content to AI creator that tries to make a realistic image.
