The October 1st mass shooting event in Las Vegas has shocked the nation, but we, the people, have lost significant trust in the FBI to honestly investigate this event. For example, the Clark County, Nevada Sheriff, Joe Lombardo, said in an Oct. 4th news conference that shooter Steven Paddock could not have acted alone; he left no suicide note; he wanted to escape and he had an escape plan.
Photos taken inside Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel show fewer than 100 shell casings, yet, perhaps as many 2,000 shots may have been fired. Yet, the media now insists he was the lone shooter. The public does not know what to believe and only a fully-transparent, bi-partisan investigation by Congress can decide truth from fiction and determine who was involved and why.
Intel chief Brian Krzanich said Tuesday his company is working on a super-fast chip designed specifically for artificial intelligence.
The chipmaking giant is partnering with Facebook and other internet titans investing heavily in artificial intelligence to create the first in what will be a family of “Nervana Neural Network Processors” tailored to the needs of the emerging technology, Krzanich said during an on-stage interview at the WSJD Live conference.
“I think we are just at the beginning of a transformation,” Krzanich said while discussing why Intel was betting on AI.
“Artificial intelligence is going to be similar to what the internet was back in the 1990s.”
Chips designed for AI need to deftly handle massive amounts of data and sensor input in real time.
Cloud services have been a hotbed for AI innovation, so Intel has partnered with Facebook and other companies in that arena to build a chip tailored from the ground up to meet those needs, according to Krzanich.
“This is the first piece of silicon,” Krzanich said. “We have a whole family planned for this, (Facebook) is helping us, along with others, as to where this is going.”
In a separate blog post on Intel’s website, Krzanich said he believes these new chips will enabled “new classes of AI applications” to help transform health care, social media, automobiles and weather forecasting, among others.
The new chip has been in the works for more than three years, and the first member of the new family is expected to start shipping “soon,” according to an online post by Naveen Rao, a co-founder of deep-learning startup Nervana which was bought by Intel in 2016.
“We designed the Intel Nervana NNP to free us from the limitations imposed by existing hardware, which wasn’t explicitly designed for AI,” Rao said.
Intel, which has been expanding beyond its core of personal computer chips in that sagging market, is keen for its technology to be an engine powering artificial intelligence and self-driving systems.
Intel announced in September that its computing tech is being loaded into Waymo self-driving minivans as the chip giant seeks a leading position on the road to autonomous vehicles.
im so soori about my ‘bad-habit’ when doing the typing-in hurry…
thanks for bring this thing up… and this is not the 1st time someone mentioning this…
again, thanks for reply. so, just ‘hodling’ and be a ‘strong-hand’ then ehh…?
Thanks for that, it was interesting to see Feathercoin mentioned, despite the “click bait” title. I got into crypto because you could “print your own money”, but that is not necessarily the same as “getting rich.”
The reason I ended up helping Feathercoin was that, there was a massive technical barrier to getting involved directly with Bitcoin, or even Litecoin. Feathercoin has offered a friendlier forum, with the more humbler moto, of “we don’t know, but it will be fun to find out.”
In the end Feathercoin’s devs have been involved in areas of crypto development few others have experience with, creating eHRC or Kimoto Gravity well, or hard forking the algorythm, so there is room, and importance for more experimental currency than just Bitcoin.
