U.S. Announces AI R&D Agreement with UK

The Trump Administration announced today that the United States and the United Kingdom signed a Declaration on Cooperation in Artificial Intelligence Research and Development intended “to drive technological breakthroughs, promote researcher collaboration and advance the development of trustworthy AI.” The announcement is an outcome of the U.S.–UK Special Relationship Economic Working Group, established following a meeting between […]

Get Your HPC Cluster Productive Faster

In this sponsored post from our friends over at Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), we see that by simplifying the deployment process from weeks or longer to days and preparing pre-built software packages, organizations can become productive in a much shorter time. Resources can be used to provide more valuable services to enable more research, rather than bringing up an HPC cluster. By using the services that QCT offers, HPC systems can achieve a better Return on Investment (ROI).

Teradata Expands Data Science Collaboration Capabilities

Cloud data analytics specialist Teradata has released collaborative features to its Vantage platform designed to reduce the friction between data scientists, business analysts, data engineers and business managers – some of whom may use different tools and languages. Enhancements include expanded native support for R and Python, with the ability to call more Vantage-native analytic […]

Intelligent Fabrics for the Next Wave of AI Innovation

In this sponsored post, our friend John Spiers, Chief Strategy Officer at Liqid, discusses how resource utilization and the soaring costs surrounding it are a constant push and pull issue for IT Departments. Now with the emergence of AI and machine learning, resource utilization is far more front and center than it has ever been. Managing legacy hardware in a hyperconverged environment just as you always have is not going to cut it, because the people and hardware costs associated with these extremely heavy workloads are tremendous. Intelligent fabrics and composable infrastructure software deliver a solution to the problem that allows IT providers the ability to pool and deploy their hardware resources to adapt to the workload at hand, then re-deploy as required for a balanced system that can address the demands of AI and machine learning.

Woman-led Team to Research Human-AI Collaboration in Army Intelligence

The Army Research Office is funding a $617,000 grant for a multi-institutional, majority-female research team for technology-enhanced intelligence analysis led by Dr. Susannah B.F. Paletz, research professor at the University of Maryland (UMD) College of Information Studies. The ARO said the team will soon recruit additional project support from undergraduate students. The research team also includes […]

Using AI to See What Eye Doctors Can’t

This white paper explains how Voxeleron, a leader in delivering advanced ophthalmic image analysis and machine learning solutions, is extending ophthalmology’s diagnostic horizons with image analysis based on artificial intelligence (AI) models, trained using Dell Precision workstations with NVIDIA GPUs.

Why developers are turning to ultra-powerful workstations for more creative freedom at less cost

This white paper from Dell Technologies discusses why developers are turning to ultra-powerful workstations for more creative freedom at less cost. Research shows that large and small companies alike are using  powerful workstations with even more powerful graphic processing units (GPUs) as integral parts of their artificial intelligence infrastructure.
