How Aerospace/Defense Can Harness Data with a Well-Designed AI Infrastructure

In this sponsored post, our friends over at Silicon Mechanics discuss how solving mission-critical problems using AI in the aerospace and defense industry is becoming more of a reality. Every day, new technologies emerge that can simplify deployment, management, and scaling of AI infrastructure to ensure long-term ROI. There are several questions to ask yourself to ensure deploying AI workloads, and harnessing the full potential of data, in aerospace/defense is much more plausible and efficient.

Pentagon Document Shows HPC Key to DoD’s Post-JEDI Cloud Strategy; Early Co-favorites: AWS and Azure

The Pentagon’s cancellation of the $10 billion JEDI cloud computing contract won in 2019 by Microsoft – the biggest tech story of the week and surely one of the biggest of the year – has major implications for the HPC and Big AI sectors. Though just what they are or will be is, for now, […]
