The demand for AI is helping Nvidia and AMD leapfrog Intel

The demand for AI is helping Nvidia and AMD leapfrog Intel

  • The future is machine learning, and no machine learns as well as a graphics card
  • Investors are buying up AMD stock because they know the processing challenges of the future are practically tailored for the massively parallel architecture of a GPU – and AMD has some really good GPUs.
  • AMD now has an entire line of GPUs dedicated to accelerating machine learning, which has been branded as Radeon Instinct .
  • All of the new technology requires a lot of processing power, and it just so happens that AMD and Nvidia were already making the perfect processors for the task: graphics cards.
  • But the most interesting dynamic that’s developed over the past year is how, ever so subtly and behind the scenes, AMD and Nvidia have essentially stolen Intel’s future away from it.

Intel is the king of a shrinking kingdom. Almost every traditional desktop or laptop PC runs on the Santa Clara company’s processors, but that tradition is fast being eroded by more mobile,…

NVIDIA & Baidu team up for AutonomousCar #AI platform 

 #fintech @slashgear

  • As for Baidu, the company has recently been given permission to start testing its self-driving cars on public roads in California.
  • Nvidia has announced a new partnership with Baidu , China’s largest search engine, to work together on developing an artificial intelligence (AI) platform for self-driving cars.
  • The goal for their system is to be able to outfit cars with both 3D maps and an AI that can read and navigate them.
  • But the companies also plan to make the platform available to other car manufacturers to who want to add self-driving tech to their vehicles.
  • While a partnership between a PC graphics card company and a Chinese search engine might seem a bit odd, the match actually works out well.

Nvidia has announced a new partnership with Baidu, China’s largest search engine, to work together on developing an artificial intelligence (AI) platform for

Intel acquires deep learning startup Nervana for more than $350 million

Intel acquires deep learning startup Nervana  by @jordannovet

  • Nervana was one of my five deep learning startups to watch in 2015 .
  • Nervana open-sourced its Neon deep learning software last year.
  • While Intel has a running business in high-performance computing (HPC), it has taken a back seat to Nvidia, another HPC supplier, when it comes to creating chips for deep learning, a trendy type of artificial intelligence that involves training artificial neural networks on lots of data and then getting them to make inferences on new data.
  • It’s unclear if Google has joined with Intel in that affair.
  • Today’s deal follows Salesforce’s acquisition of MetaMind , another prominent deep learning startup.
