Research Highlights: Singapore Researchers Look to Intel Neuromorphic Computing to Help Enable Robots That ‘Feel’

Today, two researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS), who are members of the Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (INRC), presented new findings demonstrating the promise of event-based vision and touch sensing in combination with Intel’s neuromorphic processing for robotics. The work highlights how bringing a sense of touch to robotics can significantly improve capabilities and functionality compared to today’s visual-only systems and how neuromorphic processors can outperform traditional architectures in processing such sensory data.

Intel Announces AI and Analytics Platform with New Processor, Memory, Storage and FPGA Solutions

Intel today introduced its 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and additions to its hardware and software AI portfolio, enabling customers to accelerate the development and use of AI and analytics workloads running in data center, network and intelligent-edge environments. As the industry’s first mainstream server processor with built-in bfloat16 support, Intel’s new 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors makes artificial intelligence (AI) inference and training more widely deployable on general-purpose CPUs for applications that include image classification, recommendation engines, speech recognition and language modeling.

Intel Works with University of Pennsylvania in Using Privacy-Preserving AI to Identify Brain Tumors

Intel Labs and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Medicine) are co-developing technology to enable a federation of 29 international healthcare and research institutions led by Penn Medicine to train artificial intelligence (AI) models that identify brain tumors using a privacy-preserving technique called federated learning.

Intel + Cornell Pioneering Work in the “Science of Smell”

Nature Machine Intelligence published a joint paper from researchers at Intel Labs and Cornell University demonstrating the ability of Intel’s neuromorphic test chip, Loihi, to learn and recognize 10 hazardous chemicals, even in the presence of significant noise and occlusion. The work demonstrates how neuromorphic computing could be used to detect smells that are precursors to explosives, narcotics and more.

Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2020: Transform Enterprise, Cloud, HPC & Artificial Intelligence with Faster Parallel Code

oneAPI: – A Unified Cross-Architecture, High Performance Programming Model Designed to Help Shape the Future of Application Development

In this article, we’ll dive into the newly announced oneAPI, a single, unified programming model that aims to simplify development across multiple architectures, such as CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerators. The long-term journey is represented by two important first-steps – the industry initiative and the Intel beta product.

Heterogeneous Computing Programming: oneAPI and Data Parallel C++

Sponsored Post What you missed at the Intel Developer Conference, and how to catch-up today By James Reinders In the interests of full disclosure … I must admit that I became sold on DPC++ after Intel approached me (as a consultant – 3 years retired from Intel) asking if I’d help with a book on […]

2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum 9200 Processors Offer Leadership Performance, and Advance AI

Simulation, modeling, data analytics, and other workloads commonly use high performance computing (HPC) to advance research and business in many ways. However, as converged workloads involving AI grow in adoption, HPC systems must keep pace with evolving needs. 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, with built-in AI acceleration technologies, offer leadership performance to speed the most demanding HPC workloads.

How Astera Labs is Revolutionizing Semiconductor Product Development—100% in the Cloud

For any established semiconductor product developer, designing a next-generation PCIe 5.0 chipset in less than a year is no small feat. For a brand-new startup with no compute infrastructure other than laptops, however, it is a huge ask. That’s why, with time being of the essence, Astera Labs decided to take a chance on the efficiencies it would gain from a 100% cloud-based approach.
