What you missed in Big Data: The rise of deep learning

The artificial intelligence craze continues to spread in the enterprise market. Last week saw Nvidia Inc. add its name to the long list of vendors trying to monetize the trend by introducing a new graphical processing unit specifically designed to run deep learning algorithms. The Tesla P100, as the chip is called, is the biggest of its kind by far thanks to a 15-billion transistor count that took the company’s engineers some two years to achieve. Nvidia says that the GPU also includes faster memory than its previous-generation cards and a new interconnect technology called NVLink designed to increase processing speed even further. Its impressive feature set has already attracted orders from Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM Corp. and several other top data center equipment makers that presumably plan on incorporating Tesla P100s…
