High Bandwidth Memory: The Great Awakening of AI

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is fast becoming one of the most important areas of digital expansion in history. The CEO of Applied Materials recently stated that "the war" for AI leadership will be the "biggest battle of our lifetime."1 AI promises to transform almost every industry, including healthcare (diagnosis, treatments), automotive (autonomous driving), manufacturing (robot assembly), and retail (purchasing assistance). Although the field of AI has been around since the 1950s, it was not until very recently that computing power and the methods used in AI have reached a tipping point for major disruption and rapid advancement. Both of these areas have a tremendous need for much higher memory bandwidth.

NVIDIA's background is in gaming and building supercomputers and GPUs for that purpose. Whilst that might not appeal to everyone, it has been the training field for some incredibly complex computing and has led NVIDIA to be able to participate in so many additional markets, and to be the best performing stock in the S&P500. The four main areas of activity, and of this evening's announcements, are Gaming, VR/AR/MR (Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality), Data Centers and Self Driving Cars. Huang started by suggesting we were enjoying the most exciting time in the computer industry ever, with machine learning and deep Neural Networks creating a big bang for AI. I won't cover the announcements in gaming in this blog, but needless to say they were exciting for those in the community and included a partnership with Facebook and the launch of GeForce Now, an on demand option for gamers without the computing power required on their own PC, leveraging cloud supercomputing.


Do You Believe in AI Fairy Tales?

Automatic speech transcription, Self-driving cars, a computer program beating the world champion GO player and computers learning to play video games and achieving better results than humans. Astonishing results that makes you wonder what Artificial Intelligence (AI) can achieve now and in the future. Futurist Ray Kurzweil predicts that by 2029 computers will have human level intelligence and by 2045 computers will be smarter than humans, the so called "Singularity". Some of us are looking forward to that, others think of it as their worst nightmare. In 2015 several top scientists and entrepreneurs called for caution over AI as it could be used to create something that cannot be controlled.


3 Scorching Hot Artificial Intelligence Stocks: Are They Buys?

#artificialintelligence

Most technology companies are betting that artificial intelligence (AI) will lead to big changes for their businesses. For some, it should make their operations more efficient. For others, it may improve how they deliver content to their users, make their devices smarter, or enhance their hardware and software. But beyond those improvements that will be widely enjoyed across the sector, a handful of companies are actually leading the way. So what are these companies doing in AI, and is there more room for investors to benefit?

"The Computer Society's predictions, based on a deep-dive analysis by a team of leading technology experts, identify top-trending technologies that hold extensive disruptive potential for 2018," said Jean-Luc Gaudiot, IEEE Computer Society President. "The vast computing community depends on the Computer Society as the provider for relevant technology news and information, and our predictions directly align with our commitment to keeping our community well-informed and prepared for the changing technological landscape of the future." Dejan Milojicic, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Distinguished Technologist and IEEE Computer Society past president, said, "The following year we will witness some of the most intriguing dilemmas in the future of technology. Will deep learning and AI indeed expand deployment domains or remain within the realms of neural networks? Will cryptocurrency technologies keep their extraordinary evolution or experience a bubble burst?


5 AI breakthroughs that could change the face of science

#artificialintelligence

Following years of research, AI is starting to have an impact on the way science is done, as these five Imperial studies from 2017 show. Barely a week has gone by in 2017 without warnings in the media about how Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics is threatening to make all human workers redundant. The reality is likely to be more subtle and in fact involve closer collaboration between computers and humans. But even in complex areas like scientific research, AI is having an impact on the way we approach certain problems and questions. AI techniques, such as machine learning, represent a complete step-change in ability.

Investors beware: there's plenty buzz around artificial intelligence (AI) as more and more companies say they're using it. In some cases, companies are using older data analytics tools and labeling it as AI for a public relations boost. But identifying companies actually getting material revenue growth from AI can be tricky. X AI uses computer algorithms to replicate the human ability to learn and make predictions. AI software needs computing power to find patterns and make inferences from large quantities of data.


4 Strange New Ways to Compute

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

With Moore's Law slowing, engineers have been taking a cold hard look at what will keep computing going when it's gone. Certainly artificial intelligence will play a role. But there are stranger things in the computing universe, and some of them got an airing at the IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing in November. There were also some cool variations on classics such as reversible computing and neuromorphic chips. But some less-familiar ones got their time in the sun too, such as photonics chips that accelerate AI, nano-mechanical comb-shaped logic, and a "hyperdimensional" speech recognition system.


Why Intel is suddenly bullish on Artificial Intelligence - ET Telecom

NEW YORK: There is no denying the fact that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one phenomenon that has stood out among other emerging technologies. Sensing great possibilities, global chip giant Intel has now joined the AI bandwagon in a big way. AI is not new to the world of technology but the past five years have given AI believers a reason to cheer as its uses are increasing across industries - from health care to autonomous vehicles -- say AI experts at Intel. "AI capabilities are greatly supplementing humans to do great work in less time in sectors like healthcare, banking and finance, transport, energy and robotics, etc. It will be interesting to see how this whole AI thing evolves with time," Bob Rogers, Data Scientist, AI and Analytics, Data Center Group at Intel, told.
