Paperspace launches GPU-powered virtual machines loaded with tools for data scientists

Not many companies would dare to fight with Amazon, Microsoft and Google at the same time, but three-year-old Paperspace thinks it can carve out a cloud computing niche by rolling out the red carpet for data scientists. 327 more words


GPU Accelerated Expectation Maximization for Gaussian Mixture Models using CUDA

C, CUDA, and Python source code available on GitHub


Gaussian Mixture Models offer a simple way to capture complex densities by employing a linear combination of multivariate normal distributions, each with their own mean, covariance, and mixture coefficient, , s.t. 2,084 more words


Nvidia's new Titan Xp top-end graphics card also offers Mac support

Nvidia updates its top-of-the-line Titan graphics card yearly, so it’s only natural the Titan Xp got announced Thursday. The Titan Xp’s new specs include 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4 Gbps (!), an army of 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz and 12 TFLOPs (that’s twelve… 146 more words


ECHELON: The vanguard of next generation technical software

In September 1980, interest rates hovered around 12%, movie audiences were still reeling from the revelation that Darth Vader was Luke’s father, the first personal computers were hitting the market and I was about to enter MIT as a freshman in the Aeronautics/Astronautics department. 967 more words
