In the news this week: an AI prediction platform looks for COVID-19 vaccine candidates, services to get data to and from the cloud for analysis, and more.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here is a short list of some news from this week:
NEC Corporation announced analysis results from efforts using AI prediction platforms to design blueprints for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines that can drive potent T-cell responses in the majority of the global population. This initiative by the scientific teams within the NEC Group to help combat outbreaks of COVID-19 and support international vaccine development efforts is led by NEC OncoImmunity (NOI) in collaboration with NEC Laboratories Europe (NLE). These AI prediction platforms are based on the AI technology used by NEC and NOI in the development of personalized neoantigen cancer vaccines.
Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Amazon.com company, announced Amazon AppFlow, a fully managed service that provides an easy, secure way for businesses to create and automate bidirectional data flows between AWS and SaaS applications without writing custom integration code. Amazon AppFlow also works with AWS PrivateLink to route data flows through the AWS network instead of over the public Internet to provide even stronger data privacy and security. There are no upfront charges or fees to use Amazon AppFlow, and customers only pay for the number of flows they run, and the volume of data processed.
Red Hat, Inc. announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.2, the latest version of its enterprise Linux platform, and the foundation for Red Hat’s hybrid cloud portfolio. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.2 is built for the interconnected nature of the hybrid cloud era. Its capabilities extend beyond the reliability, stability, and production-readiness for which the platform is known. The latest additions to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 platform help organizations recognize more value from existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions with new intelligent management and monitoring capabilities via updates to Red Hat Insights, enhanced container tools, and a smoother user experience for Linux experts and newcomers alike.
CommScope announced RUCKUS Analytics, a new cloud service that delivers network intelligence and simplifies service assurance, enabling organizations with complex networks to proactively improve their users’ experience. Built on a patented machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) foundation, the new service accelerates troubleshooting, provides comprehensive network visibility, automatically identifies service-affecting issues, and—unique to the networking industry—classifies them according to severity, enabling managed service provider and enterprise IT teams to address the most urgent incidents first.
Tenstorrent announced its flagship product, Grayskull. Grayskull delivers significant baseline performance improvements on today’s most widely used machine learning models, like BERT, ResNet-50, and others, while opening up orders of magnitude gains using conditional execution on both current models and future ones optimized for this approach. Tenstorrent achieves this performance increase by taking an approach that dynamically eliminates unnecessary computation, thus breaking the direct link between model size growth and compute/memory bandwidth requirements. It uses conditional computation, which enables adaptation to both inference and training of a model to the exact input that was presented, like adjusting NLP model computations to the exact length of the text presented, and dynamically pruning portions of the model based on input characteristics.
SQream and Core Scientific announced a partnership to bring accelerated analytics of massive data to the GPU Cloud for Data Scientists. This partnership provides cost-effective accelerated analytics based on GPU computing for machine learning and deep learning used by telecom operators, financial services, healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and more.
