On Wednesday, NVIDIA reported document income for the third quarter ended October 25, 2020, of $4.73 billion, up 57 p.c from $3.01 billion a 12 months earlier, and up 22 p.c from $3.87 billion within the earlier quarter. “NVIDIA is firing on all cylinders, achieving record revenues in Gaming, Data Center and overall,” stated Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA.

Earlier this week on the SC20, NVIDIA additionally unveiled the NVIDIA A100 80GB GPU , which powers the NVIDIA HGX AI supercomputing platform. The A100 with twice the reminiscence of its predecessor, permits researchers and engineers to entry unprecedented velocity and efficiency to unlock the following wave of AI and scientific breakthroughs.

NVIDIA stated that the A100 is a key ingredient in HGX AI supercomputing platform because it combines the ability of NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA NVLink, NVIDIA InfiniBand networking and a completely optimized NVIDIA AI and HPC software program stack to offer the best software efficiency. and enabling researchers and scientists to mix HPC, information analytics and deep studying computing strategies to advance scientific progress.

Mac Users Get A Boost From TensorFlow

“TensorFlow users can now get up to 7x faster training on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1.”

Last week, Apple introduced their M1 microchip, formally marking the breakup of a 15-year relationship between Apple and Intel.

M1 options Apple’s newest Neural Engine. Its 16‑core design is able to executing 11 trillion operations per second. With a strong 8‑core GPU, machine studying accelerators, and the Neural Engine, the complete M1 chip is designed to excel at machine studying. This week they introduced that TensorFlow customers utilizing Macs can now leverage the M1 chip for accelerated machine studying. The optimized model of TensorFlow 2.Four and the brand new ML Compute framework together with the TensorFlow Lite, point out how TensorFlow’s capabilities can simply be prolonged to new platforms.

With this newest announcement Apple has slowly emerged out to be a key participant within the ML enterprise market. A extremely efficient M1 chip with some great benefits of TensorFlow is a big leap for the person researchers. And, who is aware of, going ahead we’d have ML workstations at the price of GPUs due to Apple Silicon.

Google Is Using AI For Patent Industry

Yesterday, Google released a white paper outlining how they’re utilizing their well-liked BERT mannequin to assist with discovering novel patents. The mannequin educated over 100 million patent publications from the U.S. and different nations utilizing open-source tooling, successfully performs prior artwork looking out to find out the novelty of a patent software, robotically generates classification codes to help with patent categorization, and autocomplete. There are thousands and thousands of latest patents issued yearly world-wide and patent functions typically common ~10,000 phrases and are sometimes meticulously wordsmithed by inventors, attorneys, and patent examiners. To navigate via the complicated legalese might be daunting for the patent workplace. Google believes that the search capabilities of BERT which it employs for its search engine might be leveraged for locating finest patents from the thousands and thousands of them. Google believes that the patents area is ripe for the appliance of algorithms like BERT because of the technical traits of patents in addition to their enterprise worth. 

AI Will Soon Help Map Every Tree On Earth

In a current paper revealed in Nature, the authors demonstrated how AI might be used to precisely map timber throughout the globe. The researchers educated convolutional neural networks(CNNs)on satellite tv for pc photographs. Though the entire is a difficult affair, the authors consider that distant sensing of worldwide vegetation will solely get simpler as information from a variety of sources — together with mild detection and ranging (lidar), radar and high-resolution seen and near-infrared sensors — develop into extra available.
