Gary Fowler is a serial AI entrepreneur with 15 startups and an IPO. He is CEO and Co-Founder of GSD Venture Studios and Yva.ai. Traditional computers operate based on data that is encoded in a binary system. Essentially, each bit of data is represented in zeroes and ones only -- no more, no less than the two forms. However, there is a new generation of computers emerging on the horizon called quantum computing and it's taking computing systems beyond the normal binary.
This article aims to help anyone who wants to set up their windows machine for deep learning. Although setting up your GPU for deep learning is slightly complex the performance gain is well worth it * . The steps I have taken taken to get my RTX 2060 ready for deep learning is explained in detail. The first step when you search for the files to download is to look at what version of Cuda that Tensorflow supports which can be checked here, at the time of writing this article it supports Cuda 10.1.To download cuDNN you will have to register as an Nvidia developer. I have provided the download links to all the software to be installed below.

GPUs have proven extremely useful for highly parallelizable data processing use-cases. The computational paradigms found in machine learning & deep learning for example fit extremely well to the processing architecture graphics cards provide. One would assume that GPUs would be able to process any submitted tasks concurrently -- the internal steps within a workload are indeed run in parallel, however separate workloads are actually processed sequentially. Recent improvements in graphics card architectures are now enabling for hardware parallelization across multiple workloads, which can be achieved by submitting the workloads to different underlying physical GPU queues. Practical tecniques in machine learning that would benefit from this include model parallelism and data parallelism.
The next generation of high-performance, low-power computer systems might be inspired by the brain. However, as designers move away from conventional computer technology towards brain-inspired (neuromorphic) systems, they must also move away from the established formal hierarchy that underpins conventional machines -- that is, the abstract framework that broadly defines how software is processed by a digital computer and converted into operations that run on the machine's hardware. This hierarchy has helped enable the rapid growth in computer performance. Writing in Nature, Zhang et al.1 define a new hierarchy that formalizes the requirements of algorithms and their implementation on a range of neuromorphic systems, thereby laying the foundations for a structured approach to research in which algorithms and hardware for brain-inspired computers can be designed separately. The performance of conventional digital computers has improved over the past 50 years in accordance with Moore's law, which states that technical advances will enable integrated circuits (microchips) to double their resources approximately every 18–24 months.
Single-board computers (SBCs) are wildly popular AI development platforms and excellent tools to teach students of all ages how to code. The de facto standard in SBCs has been the Raspberry Pi family of mini computers. NVIDIA of course has its own lineup of programmable AI development platforms in its Jetson family, including the recently-announced low cost version of the Jetson Nano. There are a host of others from the likes of ASUS, Hardkernel, and Google. Google's Coral development kit was a rather pricey option at $175, but now the same power is much more affordable.
Google's Coral Dev Board mini has made a tantalizingly brief appearance for pre-order for $100 on Seeed's website – but stocks are already sold out, according to the company. Google unveiled its Linux Coral Dev Board mini in January, offering developers a smaller, cheaper and lower-power version of the Coral Dev Board, which launched for $149 but now costs $129. Instead of an NXP system on chip (SoC), the Mini combines the new Coral Accelerator Module with a MediaTek 8167s SoC, which consists of a quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 CPU. It also features an IMG PowerVR GE8300 GPU that's integrated in the SoC, while the machine-learning accelerator consists of the Google Edge TPU coprocessor that's capable of performing four trillion operations per second (TOPS) or two TOPS per watt. According to Google, it can execute mobile vision models such as Mobile:Net v2 at almost 400 frames per second. The device runs a derivative of Debian Linux called Mendel.
"Demonstrating the first successful quantum logic gate in 1995 was almost an accident, but doing so opened a path forward towards deploying quantum computers on previously unsolvable problems," said IonQ Co-Founder & Chief Scientist Chris Monroe. "The new system we're deploying today is able to do things no other quantum computer has been able to achieve, and even more importantly, we know how to continue making these systems much more powerful moving forward." One way is to fix errors through circuit encoding, capitalizing on a recent demonstration of quantum error correction in a nearly identical system. Monroe says "with our new IonQ system, we expect to be able to encode multiple qubits to tolerate errors, the holy grail for scaling quantum computers in the long haul." This encoding requires just 13 qubits to make a near-perfect logical qubit, while in other hardware architectures it's estimated to take more than 100,000.
Google recently released TensorFlow Quantum, a toolset for combining state-of-the-art machine learning techniques with quantum algorithm design. This is an essential step to build tools for developers working on quantum applications. Simultaneously, they have focused on improving quantum computing hardware performance by integrating a set of quantum firmware techniques and building a TensorFlow-based toolset working from the hardware level up – from the bottom of the stack. The fundamental driver for this work is tackling the noise and error in quantum computers. Here's a small overview of the above and how the impact of noise and imperfections (critical challenges) is suppressed in quantum hardware.
Potentially one of the best feature to hit the iPhone in the past few years was Optimized Battery Charging. First introduced a year ago with iOS 13, Optimized Battery Charging was designed to reduce battery wear, and therefore increase its lifespan, by limiting how long your iPhone remained fully charged by pausing the charging process at 80 percent, and then using on-device machine learning to learn your daily charging routine to determine when to add the past 20 percent of charge so your iPhone is ready for you when you wake up. Apple then went on to add the same to macOS Catalina 10.15.5. And based on testing I've carried out, this feature does indeed reduce battery wear, and the machine learning is quick to pick up on your habits and make this feature something that works in the background and which doesn't inconvenience you when your schedules change. And watchOS 7, released last month, has now brought this battery saving feature to the Apple Watch.
