Welcome to Big Data Era
The Radeon Open Compute Platform (ROCm) is an open source platform for GPU computing that is language independent and brings modular software development to GPU computing. This provides a real cheaper alternative to Nvidia's CUDA and helps developers in coding compute-oriented software for AMD Radeon GPUs along with converting existing CUDA software to run on GCN hardware.
The Nvidia DGX-1 is a new HPC system (not just a server) that features the Tesla P100 accelerators for GPU computing. It includes 2x Intel Xeon E5-2698 v3 (16 core, Haswell-EP) and 8 P100s for 28,672 CUDA
cores and 128GB of shared VRAM. The DGX-1 is rated to be able to hit 170 FP16 TFLOPs of performance (or 85 FP32 TFLOPs) inside of 3Us.
Hillary Clinton's campaign designed an algorithm named Ada to help make strategic decisions like where to place television ads to obtain the most electoral votes for the buck, where and when to deploy Clinton and others in person for optimal influence, and when it was safe to disappear and let the media focus on her opponent, Donald Trump.
Did you just lose out on the promotion you were expecting and are now thinking about how you can take your career ahead?
You could wait for the next promotion, but that would take some time.
The Simple AI Algorithm Library from Stuart Russel and Peter Norvig implements many of the algorithms described in their book "Artificial Intelligence, a Modern Approach".
This morning at Spark Summit Europe 2016, Ion Stoica announced during his keynote the Drizzle project, which promises to reduce streaming data latency in Spark to be less than Flink and Storm. Ion announced this in the context of the new RISE Lab at UC Berkeley.
