The European Commission has collected and debunked Euromyths from 1992 to 2012. People considering leaving the EU should read this before they cast their vote ;-)

Google is really rushing towards Skynet!
 
Tensor Processing Units (TPUs)
I'm very excited that we can finally discuss this in public. Today at Google I/O +Sundar Pichai revealed the TPU (Tensor Processing Unit), a custom ASIC that Google has designed and built specifically for machine learning applications. We've had TPUs deployed in Google datacenters for more than a year, and they are an order of magnitude faster and more power efficient per operation than other computational solutions for the kinds of models we are deploying to improve our products. This computational speed allows us to use larger, more powerful machine learned models, expressed and seemlessly deployed using TensorFlow (tensorflow.org) into our products, and to deliver the excellent results from those models in less time.

TPUs are used on every Google Search to power RankBrain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RankBrain), they were a key secret ingredient in the recent AlphaGo match against Lee Sedol, they are used for speech and image recognition, and they are powering a growing list of other smart products and features.

+Norm Jouppi and the rest of the team that developed this ASIC did a fabulous job, and it's great to see it discussed in public!

I hoped they would not do this so soon. That is really a scary first step towards skynet.
 
"Building AI is hard -- so Facebook Is building AI that builds AI." Oh, that sounds so much easier. "To build a deep neural network that cracks the next big AI problem, researchers must first try countless options that don't work, running each one across dozens and potentially hundreds of machines." "Many of these companies are now trying to automate this trial and error -- or at least part of it."

"With Flow, Hussein Mehanna says, Facebook trains and tests about 300,000 machine learning models each month. Whereas it once rolled a new AI model onto its social network every 60 days or so, it can now release several new models each week."
By forcing computers to do more of the grunt work, the world's biggest tech companies are accelerating how quickly AI enters the everyday world.

Eine neue Webseite mit sowjetrussichen Filmen. Wer sich dort zurechtfinden möchte, dem sei mein Blogpost https://asmaier.blogspot.ru/2014/12/sowjetrussiche-filme-die-man-gesehen.html empfohlen.

This series of videos on deep learning is worth watching. It offers a very good overview of the topic and also discusses useful libraries and platforms.

Globalisierung ole! Ich esse gerade Erdbeeren aus Kamerun, die ich in einer niederländischen Supermarktkette in Russland gekauft habe.
