13 frameworks for mastering machine learningImage by W.Rebel via WikimediaOver the past year, machine learning has gone mainstream with a bang.

The “suddenrdquo; arrival of machine learning isnrsquo;t fueled by cheap cloud environments and ever more powerful GPU hardware alone.
It is also due to an explosion of open source frameworks designed to abstract away the hardest parts of machine learning and make its techniques available to a broad class of developers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

We also get a look at System76’s in-house OS (with in-house gear on the horizon).
In July 2017, during an investigation, suspicious DNS requests were identified in a partnerrsquo;s network.

The source of the queries was a software package produced by NetSarang. Our analysis showed that recent versions of the software had been surreptitiously modified to include an encrypted payload that could be remotely activated by a knowledgeable attacker.
Google is offering an open source, hardware-accelerated library for machine learning that runs in a browser.

The library is currently supported only in the desktop version of Google Chrome, but the project is working to support more devices. The Deeplearn.js library enables training of neural networks within a browser, requiring no software installation or back end. “A client-side ML library can be a platform for interactive explanations, for rapid prototyping and visualization, and even for offline computation,” Google researchers said. “And if nothing else, the browser is one of the worldrsquo;s most popular programming platforms.”[ Learn how to write apps that take full advantage of machine learning: Data in, intelligence out: Machine learning pipelines demystified • Googlersquo;s machine-learning cloud pipeline explained • R and Python drive SQL Server 2017 into machine learning. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]Using the WebGL JavaScript API for 2D and 3D graphics, Deeplearn.jsnbsp; can conduct computations on the GPU.

This offers significant performance, thus getting past the speed limits of JavaScript, the researchers said.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

For years, service providers have capitalized on the advantages of industry-standard servers for media processing in the cloud.

These industry-standard servers, typically optimized for Intel architecture, offer the versatility to handle diverse visual cloud workloads and the total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of off-the-shelf Intel-based hardware.Today, we are building on this foundation for media processing in the cloud with new breakthroughs in performance and TCO made possible by the launch of the new Intelreg; Xeonreg; Scalable processors.

The successor to the Intelreg; Xeonreg; processor E5 and E7 families, the Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver up to 28 cores, significant increases in memory and I/O bandwidth, and built-in accelerators like Intelreg; AVX-512, along with six DDR4 memory channels and 48 PCIe lanes.

These characteristics make Intel Xeon Scalable processors a great choice for accelerating media processing in the cloud such as software-based transcoding and video stitching.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
