Podcast: Multicore Scaling Slow Down, and Fooling AI


 
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team has an animated discussion about multicore scaling, how easy it seems to be to mislead AI systems, and some good sized catches of the week. Their common thread centers around data, as is so often the case these days.

This includes the source code, build system, unit tests, and product roadmap. Our goal is to build an even better user experience in partnership with the community.

In essence, Huawei is challenging the US government to prove its suspicions.
