The Power Of Power10’s Memory Inception Clustering

Scanning through Power10’s detailed announcement material, I’ve seen a lot architecturally that intrigues an avid reader of The Next Platform like myself, but one item – one that IBM calls “Memory Inception” and IBM-based techie material calls enablement for a “memory cluster” – really caught my eye.

Next-Gen Insurers Are Going to Need (Way) More AI Horsepower

While involving AI/ML in the complex process of insurance claims now might be piecemeal, the future is bright for insurers to speed time to claim resolution by using image-based data and machine learning models to understand the scope of damage to vehicles or eventually, entire geographic regions.

Google Chips Away at Problems at “Mega-Batch” Scale

As Google’s batch sizes for AI training continue to skyrocket, with some batch sizes ranging from over 100k to one million, the company’s research arm is looking at ways to improve everything from efficiency, scalability, and even privacy for those whose data is used in large-scale training runs.

The Challenge – And Opportunity – Of Being A Niche AI Cloud

In this era of hyperscaler and cloud builder titans, their seven of whom account for about half of the IT infrastructure bought in the world, it is important to remember the importance of niches and the vital role that other makers of systems, other sellers of systems, and other renters of systems all play in the IT ecosystem.

HPC Efficiency Gurus Grapple with AMD’s RAPL

Exascale-class energy efficiency cannot be defined by a simple number. Although Green500 energy efficiency HPC rankings provide a one-shot view into performance/efficiency, the complex interplay between large system operating systems, real-world applications, and the various tuning capabilities is worth digging into.

Marvell Adds Hyperscale Ethernet With Innovium Acquisition

Cash used to be king, and now market capitalization is. That’s one of the reasons that the biggest players in the semiconductor arena are snapping up competitors, startups, and suppliers in adjacent chip markets at an increasing pace and with very large bags of “money.”
