The basic assumption is that if powerful high performance computing hardware can be harnessed to pull Hadoop and MapReduce workloads, it might do so at far greater speed-opening the door for far faster analytics.
At a lab near San Jose, IBM has built the digital equivalent of a rodent brain---roughly speaking. It spans 48 of the company's experimental TrueNorth chips, a new breed of processor that mimics the brain's biological building blocks.
LLNL and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will collaborate to expand use of HPC under a recently signed memorandum of understanding.
In Open Sourcing its artificial intelligence engine - freely sharing one of its most important creations with the rest of the Internet - Google showed how the world of computer software is changing.
IBM recently announced its TrueNorth chip, which operates like a brain does. Here are the details of the chip and how IBM sees it changing the future of computing.
Your enterprise will live, grow, and die from Machine Learning (ML). ML provides huge competitive advantage for those strongly embracing it.
The Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, FCA US LLC, and the foundry giant, Nemak of Mexico, are combining their strengths to create lightweight powertrain materials that will help the auto industry speed past the technological roadblocks to its target of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025.
A software program that ranks supercomputers on their ability to solve complex problems rather than on raw speed alone continues to gain traction in the high-performance computing community.
