Artificial Intelligence in the corporate world

November 25, 2019

In 2020, artificial intelligence will no longer be a vision of the future, but a tangible reality: language agents such as Siri, Cortana or Alexa are already pervading our everyday lives. The smart assistants play our favorite music, make restaurant suggestions, recommend films, identify the fastest route to our destination and steer our car better into the parking lot than we could. We use artificially intelligent systems that are becoming more and more a matter of course both at home and at work. AI systems have slipped into our everyday lives and they are here to stay.

IBM Watson NLP Performance with Intel Optimizations

whitePaper | December 29, 2022

In our modern world, taking advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to gain insights from data is becoming more prevalent day by day. Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) systems use multiple cores to perform parallel processing, running select workloads to decrease processing times. Compared to GPUs, Central Processing Units (CPUs) have fewer cores; previously, this resulted in less capacity for parallelized processing. To move beyond this limitation, Intel has released new hardware that runs typical AI mathematical computations more efficiently on the CPU, and has also released libraries with hardware optimizations that enable an additional increase in performance.
