What Next? Entering the World of Machine Learning

Frameworks, applications, libraries and toolkits—journeying through the world of deep learning can be daunting. If you’re trying to decide whether or not to begin a machine or deep learning project, there are several points that should first be considered. This is the final article in a five-part series that covers the steps to take before launching a machine learning startup. This article provides a variety of resources to employ when first exploring machine learning. 

Announcing the Dell EMC AI Challenge

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Shreya Shar and Onur Celebioglu from Dell describe the new Dell EMC AI Challenge. “Dell EMC invites you to participate in an AI Challenge! Abstracts and proposals will be accepted through May 31, 2018, and will be reviewed according to the following three criteria: Most innovative use of AI technology, Biggest economic or social impact, and Highest potential for commercialization.”

Introducing the Cambridge Data Accelerator

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Alisdair King from Cambridge University describes the new Cambridge Data Accelerator. “The Cambridge Data Accelerator is an open source software package for building Burst Buffers from high speed flash storage. With available support from Cambridge University, the Cambridge Data Accelerator offers flexibility and high performance for high performance workloads.”

How ZIFF Powers AI with Dell EMC Technologies

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, David Gonzolez from Ziff describes how Dell EMC powers AI solutions at his company. “ZIFF is unique in its approach to Ai. By focusing on empowering product visionaries and software engineers, ZIFF can help organizations fully unlock the insights and automation trapped within their unstructured data.” To accelerate it’s unstructured database technology, Ziff uses the Dell PowerEdge C4140, which allows them meet the demands of cognitive computing workloads with a dense, accelerator-optimized 1U server supporting 4 GPUs and superior thermal efficiency.

Thierry Pellegrino on the Move to AI with HPC at Dell EMC

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Thierry Pellegrino describes how Dell EMC customers are applying HPC technologies to AI workloads. “I’ll just mention one of our customers, AeroFarms, who use a lot of our technology in order to bring the value of IoT into an environment where you can do machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and automatically grow crops in an environment that you would never think it would be possible.”

How NVIDIA Powers HPC for Energy at Dell EMC

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Peter Lilian from NVIDIA describes how the company works with Dell EMC to deliver extreme performance solutions for the Energy sector. “Dell EMC and NVIDIA have expanded their collaboration by signing a new strategic agreement to include joint product development of new products and solutions that address the burgeoning workload and datacenter requirements, with GPU-accelerated solutions for HPC, data analytics, and artificial intelligence.”

Video: AI Ready Solutions from Dell EMC

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Kash Shaikh from Dell EMC describes the company’s new AI Ready Solutions. “Dell EMC is at the forefront of AI, providing the technology that makes tomorrow possible, today. Dell EMC uniquely provides an extensive portfolio of technologies — spanning workstations, servers, networking, storage, software and services — to create the high-performance computing and data analytics solutions that underpin successful AI, machine and deep learning implementations.”

How Deep Learning is Causing a ‘Seismic Shift’ in the Retail Industry

 These days, taking big data further and integrating machine and deep learning means having a competitive edge in the retail industry. Analytics — and their analysis — have always been a cornerstone of retail success. And now, deep learning techniques are going to push the data boom to the next level. A new insideHPC special report, courtesy of Dell EMC and NVIDIA, explores how the retail industry is being transformed by machine and deep learning.

Dell EMC Steps up with AMD EPYC Servers for HPC, SDN, and the Edge

Today Dell EMC announced three new servers powered by AMD EPYC processors. “The Advanced High-Performance Computing Center at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville runs Molecular Dynamics simulation the open-source code: LAMMPS (Large-Scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator). We found the Dell EMC PowerEdge 7415 single socket server with the AMD EPYC processor runs faster than existing dual socket servers, allowing us to support our continued need for more bandwidth and additional cores, but using less power in a smaller space.”

Reinventing the Retail Industry Through Machine and Deep Learning

Today, deep learning techniques are poised to disrupt the retail industry. As artificial neural networks become more and more efficient, and as graphics processing units get more and more powerful, so does their influence on retail.
