AMD’s game plan to become a machine-learning giant

Right now, the market for GPUs for use in machine learning is essentially a market of one: Nvidia.AMD, the only other major discrete GPU vendor of consequence, holds around 30 percent of the market for total GPU sales compared to Nvidiarsquo;s 70 percent.

For machine-learning work, though, Nvidiarsquo;s lead is near-total. Not just because all the major clouds with GPU support are overwhelmingly Nvidia-powered, but because the GPU middleware used in machine learning is by and large Nvidiarsquo;s own CUDA.[ Roundup: TensorFlow, Spark MLlib, Scikit-learn, MXNet, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, and Caffe machine learning and deep learning frameworks. | Get a digest of the dayrsquo;s top tech stories in the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]AMD has long had plans to fight back.
Itrsquo;s been prepping hardware that can compete with Nividia on performance and price, but itrsquo;s also ginning up a platform for vendor-neutral GPU programming resourcesnbsp;— a way for developers to freely choose AMD when putting together a GPU-powered solution without worrying about software support.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Google has added support for up to six users to its virtual assistant device, Google Home.

That’s a huge leap in the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
It solves many problems related to voice-activated virtual assistants, while also creating some serious privacy concerns.I have three Gmail users in my house who all access the same Google Home device, which is linked to my account.
It’s used for playing music, watching videos through Nvidia Shield, helping with recipes, asking questions, checking appointments, and other such tasks.Here’s the problem: I hate it. My Google search history and YouTube playlists are all messed up.
It’s full of queries by my wife, guests, kids, and our au pair. My private appointments are accessible to anyone who can ask for them.

Anyone can activate my Google Home device by yelling from outside the window and taking control of connected devices like oven, lights, and door lock (I was smart enough to not install smart locks). Worst of all, Google is not learning anything about me as it’s being used by everyone.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
