- The Computational Limits of Deep Learning
Deep learning’s recent history has been one of achievement: from triumphing
over humans in the game of Go to world-leading performance in image
recognition, voice recognition, translation, and other tasks. But this progress
has come with a voracious appetite for computing power. This article reports on
the computational demands of Deep Learning applications in five prominent
application areas and shows that progress in all five is strongly reliant on
increases in computing power. Extrapolating forward this reliance reveals that
progress along current lines is rapidly becoming economically, technically, and
environmentally unsustainable. Thus,

- Deep Learning for Procedural Content Generation – a survey
Procedural content generation in video games has a long history. Existing
procedural content generation methods, such as search-based, solver-based,
rule-based and grammar-based methods have been applied to various content types
such as levels, maps, character models, and textures. A research field centered
on content generation in games has existed for more than a decade. More
recently, deep learning has powered a remarkable range of inventions in content
production, which are applicable to games. While some cutting-edge deep
learning methods are applied on their own, others are applied in combination
with more traditional methods, or in an

In recent years, neural networks have shown impressive performance gains on

management, namely, that our data is represented as fields of a pre-defined
This paper presents a first step in answering that question. We describe
NeuralDB, a database system with no pre-defined schema, in which updates and
queries are given in natural language. We develop query processing techniques
that build on the primitives offe

streamed through the network from the server to the user. This service requires
low latency and a large bandwidth to work properly with low response time and
high-definition video. Three of the leading tech companies, (Google, Sony and
NVIDIA) entered this market with their own products, and others, like Microsoft
and Amazon, are planning to launch their own platforms in the near future.

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I’d imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and “subway” tooter.
this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?
This is particularly worrisom

The news for processors and system-on-chip (SoC) products these

technology is obsolete. That quickly leads to the idea of removing support
for 32-bit hardware, which would clearly make life easier for kernel
developers in a number of ways.
At the same time, a majority of embedded systems shipped today do use 32-bit
processors, so a valid question is if this will ever change, or if 32-bit
will continue to be the best choice for devices that do not require

- Every Model Learned by Gradient Descent Is Approximately a Kernel Machine
Deep learning’s successes are often attributed to its ability to
automatically discover new representations of the data, rather than relying on
handcrafted features like other learning methods. We show, however, that deep
networks learned by the standard gradient descent algorithm are in fact
mathematically approximately equivalent to kernel machines, a learning method
that simply memorizes the data and uses it directly for prediction via a
similarity function (the kernel). This greatly enhances the interpretability of
deep network weights, by elucidating that they are effectively a superposition
of the training examples. The network architec

This paper reports the design and test results of a single-flux-quantum (SFQ) bit-serial adder, which we designed with a target-clock frequency of 100 GHz, to investigate several techniques for producing ultra-high-speed computations using SFQ circuits. The bit-serial adder was designed based on a new cell library developed for the ISTEC Advanced Process, where the critical current density and McCumber-Stewart parameters of Josephson junctions were increased to 10 kA/cm
and 2.0, respectively, to obtain higher operating frequencies. In addit

- Is Your Linux Version Hiding Interrupt CPU Usage from You?
TL;DR: Some Linux distros and even different kernel versions within a distro have disabled IRQ time accounting. In such case, your monitoring tools will report zero time spent in hardware interrupt handlers (shown as %hi, %irq, hiq, etc). It’s easy to check how your kernel is behaving by looking at /proc/stat and you can still measure interrupt CPU usage using perf and a little creativity.
