Ai comes to MATLAB and Simulink with new 2019a release

Today MathWorks introduced Release 2019a of MATLAB and Simulink. The release contains new products and important enhancements for artificial intelligence (AI), signal processing, and static analysis, along with new capabilities and bug fixes across all product families. “One of the key challenges in moving AI from hype to production is that organizations are hiring AI ‘experts’ and trying to teach them engineering domain expertise. With R2019a, MathWorks enables engineers to quickly and effectively extend their AI skills, whether it’s to develop controllers and decision-making systems using reinforcement learning, training deep learning models on NVIDIA DGX and cloud platforms, or applying deep learning to 3-D data,” said David Rich, MATLAB marketing director.”

Cleve Moler from MathWorks gave this talk at the 2017 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing. “MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation. Typical uses include: Data analysis, exploration, and visualization.”

GPUs Power New AWS P2 Instances for Science & Engineering in the Cloud

Today Amazon Web Services announced the availability of P2 instances, a new GPU instance type for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud designed for compute-intensive applications that require massive parallel floating point performance, including artificial intelligence, computational fluid dynamics, computational finance, seismic analysis, molecular modeling, genomics, and rendering. With up to 16 NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPUs, P2 instances are the most powerful GPU instances available in the cloud.

MathWorks Release 2016b Makes it Easier to Work with Big Data

“Companies are awash in data, but struggle to take advantage of it to build better predictive models and gain deeper insights,” says David Rich, MATLAB marketing director, MathWorks. “With R2016b, we’ve lowered the bar to allow domain experts to work with more data, more easily. This leads to improved system design, performance, and reliability.”
