Deeplite Accelerates AI on Arm CPUs Using Ultra-Compact Quantization

Deeplite, a provider of AI optimization software designed to make AI model inference faster, more compact and energy-efficient, today announced Deeplite Runtime (DeepliteRT), a new addition to its platform that makes AI models even smaller and faster in production deployment, without compromising accuracy. Customers will benefit from lower power consumption, reduced costs and the ability to utilize existing Arm CPUs to run AI models.

From Storage to Story: Delivering New Value by Unlocking the Power of Data

Our friends over at Kin+Carta know that optimizing the full value of data and figuring out where to start can be difficult. That is why the company has authored this whitepaper on ways to make data work in four clear ways, while helping you take yours from Storage to Story, from modernization through to product optimization. The company’s approach is focused on creating digital products with data to enhance customer and business outcomes.

Redistricting with Optimization

This contributed article discusses how optimization is the most transparent and fair method of creating political districts. However, optimization is a highly challenging process that seeks the ideal answer to a problem with hundreds of millions of possible solutions.  The enormity of the problem can be addressed in 2021 because states like Michigan and Virginia are now seriously addressing the gerrymandering issue, while advances in computer software and hardware have made the necessary large-scale optimization possible.

Cambridge Quantum Algorithm Solves Optimization Problems Significantly Faster, Outperforming Existing Quantum Methods

In a development that is likely to set a new industry standard, scientists at Cambridge Quantum (CQ) have developed a new algorithm for solving combinatorial optimization problems that are widespread in business and industry, such as traveling salesman, vehicle routing or job shop scheduling, using near-term quantum computers.
