Ubuntu 21.04 makes a play for the enterprise desktop


If you're reading this chances are you're fond of Ubuntu too. Besides hardcore Linux desktop fans, Ubuntu's also a hit with serious artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) developers. But you know where Ubuntu hasn't had much luck in finding users? In the corporate world where Windows still rules supreme. One reason for that is most enterprises rely on Microsoft Active Directory (AD) to manage users and connect them with network resources.

Serving Machine Learning Model as REST-API with AWS Lambda


We recently got the chance to help one of our start-up clients from the Oil and Gas research domain. They have to deal with heavy workloads on AWS for their application. This was achieved by training and deploying a lot of machine learning models using AWS SageMaker and AWS EC2. AWS SageMaker is a tool that helps the data scientists and developers to quickly build and deploy applications within a hosted environment. Also, AWS EC2 or elastic Compute Cloud is the tool for providing scalable computing capacity across different virtual servers.

What is AI Pose Estimation Technology and How You Can Use It?


If you list the biggest and fastest-growing technologies over the past decade, artificial intelligence (AI) will inarguably top the charts. The global AI market was valued at 39.9 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 42.2% during 2020-2027, according to Grand View Research. AI has found applications in every industry, and the fitness sector is no different. Smart fitness wearables, AI-powered fitness apps, and AI and Machine Learning (ML) for gym management are common use cases of AI in fitness. But not many people thought that there would come a time when AI will be on the verge of replacing personal trainers and fitness coaches.

Cerebras Doubles AI Performance with Second-Gen 7nm Wafer Scale Engine


Nearly two years since its massive 1.2 trillion transistor Wafer Scale Engine chip debuted at Hot Chips, Cerebras Systems is announcing its second-generation technology (WSE-2), which its says packs twice the performance into the same 8″x8″ silicon footprint. "We're going bigger, faster and better in a more power efficient footprint," Cerebras Founder and CTO Andrew Feldman told HPCwire ahead of today's launch. With 2.6 trillion transistors and 850,000 cores, the WSE-2 more than doubles the elements on the first-gen chip (1.2 trillion transistors, 400,000 cores). The new chip, made by TSMC on its 7nm node, delivers 40 GB of on-chip SRAM memory, 20 petabytes of memory bandwidth and 220 petabits of aggregate fabric bandwidth. Gen over gen, the WSE-2 provides about 2.3X on all major performance metrics, said Feldman.

Artificial Intelligence Is Making 3D Holograms Possible On Smartphones


A part of what we see in science fiction movies will soon become a reality, thanks to artificial intelligence. Every time you saw people talking to holograms in sci-fi movies and thought to yourself "that would be awesome to have", you just might be closer to that future. Smartphones will soon be able to create photorealistic 3D holograms with an AI model developed by a research team at MIT. This system determines the best way to generate holograms from a sequence of input images. This fascinating technology could have applications for VR and AR headsets.

Now for AI's Latest Trick: Writing Computer Code


It can take years to learn how to write computer code well. SourceAI, a Paris startup, thinks programming shouldn't be such a big deal. The company is fine-tuning a tool that uses artificial intelligence to write code based on a short text description of what the code should do. Tell the company's tool to "multiply two numbers given by a user," for example, and it will whip up a dozen or so lines in Python to do just that. SourceAI's ambitions are a sign of a broader revolution in software development.

Data Science and Machine Learning Bootcamp with R


Learn how to use the R programming language for data science and machine learning and data visualization! Hello everyone and welcome to the lecture on histograms and this lecture we're going to learn how to create histograms with our. We're going to first start off with installing Gigia plot to will also install a dataset with related the Gilia plot to called a cheesy plot to movies dataset. And before we actually start coding anything I'm going to show you a great cheat sheet resource that our studio provides for you for work and of G-G plot 2. OK. I'm super excited to show you all this. So let's go ahead and jump to our studio. OK so here we are our studio. Let's go ahead and start off by installing the packages we need. You're going to need to install G-G plot 2. So the start off will just go to Head and in the console you can say installed packages in quotes.

MetaTF development environment to simplify deep learning


The framework leverages the Python scripting language and its associated tools and libraries, including Jupyter notebooks and NumPy.

Artificial Intelligence in ophthalmology


Telemedicine and artificial intelligence (AI) provide solutions to the challenges faced by ophthalmologists and healthcare professionals around the world. Diseases such as diabetic retinopathy (DR), retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma and other anterior segment disorders could be more easily predicted and detected with the help of these new technologies. New digital tools and the development of fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks, artificial intelligence (AI) approaches such as machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) and the Internet of Things (IoT), or blockchain, have created new opportunities for the healthcare sector that offer great scenarios for improving diagnoses and making patient care more comfortable. Moreover, the pandemic that we have unfortunately had to live with for more than a year now is prompting us to speed up the process of widespread telemedicine. Particularly in less industrialised countries where hospitals are often very far from villages.

Researchers Uncover Secrets about the Dead Sea Scrolls Using Artificial Intelligence


While archaeologists are still unsure who wrote the Dead Scrolls, thanks to a recent study that used artificial intelligence, they could be one level closer to knowing the artefacts' origins. According to the research, which was reported this week in the journal PLOS ONE, the text on the ancient Jewish manuscripts, which date from the 3rd century B.C.E. to the 1st century C.E., was likely written by two individuals. The two scribes wrote in such a similar way that the gaps between them aren't apparent to the naked human eye, according to the analysis -- information that indicates the scribes may have undergone similar training, possibly at a school or in a near social environment, according to the researchers. The researchers started by teaching an artificial neural network to digitally distinguish a text's ink from a cloth or papyrus setting. Smithsonian Magazine mentioned "This is important because the ancient ink traces relate directly to a person's muscle movement and are person-specific," says study co-author Lambert Schomaker, an artificial intelligence researcher at the University of Groningen, in a statement.
