Natural Language Processing First Steps: How Algorithms Understand Text

#artificialintelligence

This article will discuss how to prepare text through vectorization, hashing, tokenization, and other techniques, to be compatible with machine learning (ML) and other numerical algorithms. I'll explain and demonstrate the process. Natural Language Processing (NLP) applies Machine Learning (ML) and other techniques to language. However, machine learning and other techniques typically work on the numerical arrays called vectors representing each instance (sometimes called an observation, entity, instance, or row) in the data set. We call the collection of all these arrays a matrix; each row in the matrix represents an instance.


Nvidia adds container support into AI Enterprise suite

#artificialintelligence

Nvidia has rolled out the latest version of its AI Enterprise suite for GPU-accelerated workloads, adding integration for VMware's vSphere with Tanzu to enable organisations to run workloads in both containers and inside virtual machines. Available now, Nvidia AI Enterprise 1.1 is an updated release of the suite that GPUzilla delivered last year in collaboration with VMware. It is essentially a collection of enterprise-grade AI tools and frameworks certified and supported by Nvidia to help organisations develop and operate a range of AI applications. That's so long as those organisations are running VMware, of course, which a great many enterprises still use in order to manage virtual machines across their environment, but many also do not. However, as noted by Gary Chen, research director for Software Defined Compute at IDC, deploying AI workloads is a complex task requiring orchestration across many layers of infrastructure.


Researchers use Nvidia GPUs to simulate a living cell

ZDNet

Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created a 3D simulation of a living minimal cell, using Nvidia GPUs to simulate 7,000 genetic information processes over 20 minutes. The project, the scientists say, is the longest and most complex cell simulation to date. "Even a minimal cell requires 2 billion atoms," Zaida Luthey-Schulten, chemistry professor and co-director of the university's Center for the Physics of Living Cells, said in a statement. "You cannot do a 3D model like this in a realistic human time scale without GPUs." The simulation replicated a minimal cell's physical and chemical characteristics at a particle scale.


Artificial Intelligence Workstation Computer

#artificialintelligence

As datasets grow larger and more complex, analysts with inadequately configured systems can experience unforeseen delays. This results in reduced productivity and can compromise time to insight; a challenge that is frustrating for data analysts and business leaders alike. Lenovo's dedicated portfolio of data science workstations are purpose built with the data scientist in mind; delivering best in class Intel Xeon CPU & Memory performance. In addition, these data science workstations include the new Lenovo Data Science operating system. This custom Linux OS, based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, is configurable as a factory option and features many of the industry's most common machine and deep learning frameworks, AI development tools and data analytics software applications.

An exchange-traded fund with holdings picked by artificial intelligence is betting on big gains from Tesla and Nvidia in January. It has been right about a number of price swings for electric-vehicle leader Tesla stock before. AI-powered investor Qraft, a South Korean fintech with almost $60 million in assets across four ETFs, doubled down on Tesla (ticker: TSLA), which also was its largest holding in December, while pouring into shares of chip maker Nvidia (NVDA) this month. Its Large Cap Momentum ETF (AMOM) now counts Tesla Tesla as 8.8% of its portfolio, up from 7.7% in December, with Nvidia not far behind at 8.1%. AMOM has a history of correctly anticipating price moves in Tesla stock. The fund sold off all of its shares in the company at the end of August 2020, before the stock fell 14% that September and a further 10% in October.

Nvidia Is Pushing the Limits in Autonomous Driving

#artificialintelligence

For those not familiar with TuSimple, they are a publicly traded company and they focus in creating autonomous self-driving trucks, which I think is pretty impressive. Trucks are such a huge machine, that you need to have so many sensors, because obviously a car can really cause a lot of damage, but a truck, self-driving, if that goes circuit can definitely cause some insane damage. They partnered up with Nvidia, chips to work on autonomous computing, to work with their autonomous driving. For those not familiar with Nvidia, they are semiconductor company that makes chips or processors and accelerators. The reason you need these accelerators is because when you're doing autonomous driving, you really need to be able to compute all this information, all these sensors that you're seeing at real time.


Nvidia's AI-powered scaling makes old games look better without a huge performance hit

#artificialintelligence

Nvidia's latest game-ready driver includes a tool that could let you improve the image quality of games that your graphics card can easily run, alongside optimizations for the new God of War PC port. The tech is called Deep Learning Dynamic Super Resolution, or DLDSR, and Nvidia says you can use it to make "most games" look sharper by running them at a higher resolution than your monitor natively supports. DLDSR builds on Nvidia's Dynamic Super Resolution tech, which has been around for years. Essentially, regular old DSR renders a game at a higher resolution than your monitor can handle and then downscales it to your monitor's native resolution. This leads to an image with better sharpness but usually comes with a dip in performance (you are asking your GPU to do more work, after all). So, for instance, if you had a graphics card capable of running a game at 4K but only had a 1440p monitor, you could use DSR to get a boost in clarity.


Best Accessories and External Components for AI Computers

You don't have to look far or wide to find guides on building the best gaming rigs. That is a tougher search, although there can be some overlap. There aren't many companies talking about the ins and outs of DIY AI computer build essentials. It is exactly for that reason that we have compiled a list of the most important components you will need for an artificial intelligence (AI) build and what we recommend. What else should you consider for an AI computer?


NVIDIA begins rolling out Android 11 update to all Shield TV models

Engadget

NVIDIA has started rolling out Software Experience Upgrade 9.0 for Shield TV devices, and it will upgrade their operating system to Android 11. The company says Experience 9.0 will bring the new OS to all Shield TVs, including the original 2015 models, and it will also include the September 2021 Android security patch that fixes a vulnerability allowing remote attackers to cause a permanent denial of service. In addition, the upgrade adds access to a new Google Keyboard with support for voice searches. Users will now be able to look for movies and shows to watch by issuing voice commands through Google Assistant. Those who have aptX compatible Bluetooth headsets will be able to start using it with their streaming box, as well.
