  • NVIDIA's DGX SuperPOD: Redefining AI In The Shadow Of A Pandemic TG Daily | Jul 31 Artificial Intelligence, while still in its infancy, is making significant advances. NVIDIA, who is arguably the leader in core AI technology based on their recent MLperf performance results, just showcased they could build, from scratch, a Supercomputer, their new Selene supercomputer, in a couple of weeks. This Supercomputer wasn’t trivial either; a DGX Superpod has 64 nodes of NVIDIA DGX A100, 2,240 NVIDIA A100 GPUs, over 5M NVIDIA Cuda cores, over 655K NVIDIA Tensor cores, and 768 NVIDIA NV Switches. Now it typically takes the better part of a year to develop and build a new Supercomputer, so doing it in weeks is a testament to NVIDIA’s architecture and builds on their MLperf performance statistics to confirm their leadership status. This ability to spin up new Supercomputers very rapidly is a game-changer; let me explain.
  • Redefining productivity and compensation in an AI age Computerworld | Jul 30 Artificial intelligence offers the promise of boosting productivity by automating mundane tasks. Here are some of the areas it might soon gain a foothold.
  • AMD vs. Intel: The Adverse Impact of Massive Layoffs, Bad Leadership eWeek | Jul 30 Intel remains both the more powerful and the more profitable company, but its valuation has taken a pounding due to organizational issues. The company is well on the way to a major correction.
  • The Essential Need for 5G in the COVID World TechNewsWorld | Jul 27 Much of my time these last few weeks has been spent looking at schools and companies that tried and often failed to pivot to remote work and education. One of the biggest problems has been connectivity. Our infrastructure just wasn't set up to suddenly shift massive amounts of traffic from companies to homes. Exacerbating this has been cable networks where you have shared capacity because they were built out with the idea that most folks wouldn't be using them at the same time.

Dell exploring options for its VMware stake

“My guess is [Dell is] looking at the structural ownership of the company so that he is able to [take one or both companies private] far more quickly than a company as complex as Dell would typically be able to do.” [He would explore options such as replacing executive leadership, rather than another transaction, if he had VMWare performance concerns.]

Google's $175M racial equality fund

“If Google genuinely wanted to make a difference, it would use its technology and resources to protect black jobs, black reputations and particularly black children. It would ... use its voice and technical capabilities to help people of color achieve better lives.”

IBM’s decision to abandon facial recognition

[The decision shows us that IBM has one of the strongest ethical policies of any technology company.] “The current leadership recognizes that when the company loses track of what’s right, it almost always ends badly, and so if something appears wrong, they’ll avoid it.”

The lawsuit filed against Google for tracking people who used Chrome’s Incognito mode

[The lawsuit] “looks solid. Large companies often find creative ways around laws and then convince themselves that they'll get away with questionable practices. That seems to be the case here.”

Zoom's COVID-19 growth, half of which was customers paying month-to-month

“It's a reminder that Zoom is seeing an unusual spike during what we hope will be a relatively short term event. Once you don't have to socially distance as aggressively anymore, a lot of folks are going to want to go back to meeting in person.”
