Amazon Web Services Extends Its Reach in HPC, Hyperscale, and Enterprise

Episode 253: Addison Snell and Michael Feldman analyze three big announcements out of Amazon Web Services in HPC, Hyperscale and Enterprise computing.

UC Berkeley, Intel Explore Potential Replacement for CMOS Technology

Researchers from Intel and the University of California, Berkeley have proposed a new category of logic and memory devices that could offer 10 to 100 times the energy efficiency of microprocessors based on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology.

IBM Takes Aim at Reduced Precision for New Generation of AI Chips

IBM researchers claim they have come up with a much more efficient model for processing neural networks, using just 8 bits for training and only 4 bits for inferencing. The research is being presented this week at the International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) and the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS).

DeepMind Stops Playing Games, Debuts AI Software for Predicting Protein Structures

Having moved on from beating up on world champion Go players, DeepMind has developed an artificial intelligence system that just captured top honors in a protein folding prediction competition. Known as AlphaFold, the technology has been two years in the making.
