AI and Chatbots: Where we are and Where we’re headed

In this special guest feature, Kevin Curran, IEEE Senior Member and senior lecturer in computer science at Ulster University, takes a high-level view of one of the more popular AI-driven technologies we have seen this past year, and will continue to see in 2017 – chatbots.

Cray Works with Industry Leaders to Reach New Performance Milestone for Deep Learning at Scale

Cray Inc. announced the results of a deep learning collaboration between Cray, Microsoft, and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) that expands the horizons of running deep learning algorithms at scale using the power of Cray supercomputers. Running larger deep learning models is a path to new scientific possibilities, but conventional systems and architectures limit the problems that can be addressed, as models take too long to train. Cray worked with Microsoft and CSCS, a world-class scientific computing center, to leverage their decades of high performance computing expertise to profoundly scale the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit.
