The Brain vs Deep Learning Part I: Computational Complexity — Or Why the Singularity Is Nowhere Near

In this blog post I will delve into the brain and explain its basic information processing machinery and compare it to deep learning. I do this by moving step-by-step along with the brains electrochemical and biological information processing pipeline and relating it directly to the architecture of convolutional nets. 13,830 more words

Superstar-backed Rescale nets $6.4 million to build a better engineering cloud

Engineering jobs—things like the design of a complex airplane or car part and the virtual testing of that design—pose special and intense computing challenges. And those are the types of jobs that San Francisco-based Rescale, which just announced $6.4 million in funding, is targeting. 387 more words

Building a custom, third-party OS for Intel’s Xeon Phi (Part 2: The Design)

Last time I gave a brief overview of the history leading up to the Xeon Phi and some of the motivations for its creation. While most of this was based on research and first-hand experience, I’ll admit that some of it—particularly the pieces related to the transition from Larrabee to the Xeon Phi—involved a little speculation. 738 more words
