IBM and NVIDIA Team Up on World's Fastest Deep Learning Enterprise Solution

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) and NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today announced collaboration on a new deep learning tool optimized for the latest IBM and NVIDIA technologies to help train computers to think and learn in more human-like ways at a faster pace.

Deep learning is a fast growing machine learning method that extracts information by crunching through millions of pieces of data to detect and rank the most important aspects from the data. Publicly supported among leading consumer web and mobile application companies, deep learning is quickly being adopted by more traditional business enterprises.



Deep learning and other artificial intelligence capabilities are being used across a wide range of industry sectors; in banking to advance fraud detection through facial recognition; in automotive for self-driving automobiles and in retail for fully automated call centers with computers that can better understand speech and answer questions. 

A new deep learning software toolkit available today called IBM PowerAI runs on the recently announced IBM server built for artificial intelligence that features NVIDIA® NVLink™ interconnect technology optimized for IBM’s Power architecture. The hardware-software solution provides more than 2X performance over comparable servers with 4 GPUs running AlexNet with Caffe.1 The same 4-GPU Power-based configuration running Alexnet with BVLC Caffe can also outperform 8 M40 GPU-based x86 configurations2, making it the world’s fastest commercially available enterprise systems platform on two versions of a key deep learning framework.

Caffe is a widely-used deep learning framework developed by Berkeley Vision and Learning Center (BVLC) and is recognized within the technology industry as one of the most popular deep learning community applications. Caffe is one of five deep learning software frameworks available in the IBM PowerAI toolkit. The toolkit leverages NVIDIA GPUDL libraries including cuDNN, cuBLAS and NCCL as part of NVIDIA SDKs to deliver multi-GPU acceleration on IBM servers. 

IBM PowerAI is designed to run on IBM’s highest performing server in its OpenPOWER LC lineup, the IBM Power S822LC for High Performance Computing (HPC), which features NVIDIA NVLink technology optimized for the Power architecture and NVIDIA’s latest GPU technology. The new solution supports emerging computing methods of artificial intelligence, particularly deep learning. IBM PowerAI also provides a continued path for Watson, IBM’s cognitive solutions platform, to extend its artificial intelligence expertise in the enterprise by using several deep learning methods to train Watson.

“PowerAI democratizes deep learning and other advanced analytic technologies by giving enterprise data scientists and research scientists alike an easy to deploy platform to rapidly advance their journey on AI,” said Ken King, General Manager, OpenPOWER. “Coupled with our high performance computing servers built for AI, IBM provides what we believe is the best platform for enterprises building AI-based software, whether it’s chatbots for customer engagement, or real-time analysis of social media data.”

“Our innovation with IBM on NVIDIA NVLink has created new opportunities for POWER in the deep learning and analytics market,” said Ian Buck, VP and GM of Accelerated Computing Group. “NVIDIA’s GPUDL libraries in PowerAI will provide world class high-performance tools to power GPU-accelerated deep learning applications.”

IBM PowerAI is available immediately at no charge to customers of IBM’s Power S822LC for HPC server. PowerAI is designed to run on a single S822LC server and also to scale to large scale supercomputing clusters consisting of dozens, hundreds or thousands of servers.

The NVLink Advantage
PowerAI is a set of binary distributions of popular deep learning frameworks including Caffe, Torch and Theano. Additional distributions include the IBM and NVIDIA versions of the Caffe deep learning frameworks, IBM-Caffe and NVCaffe. IBM has optimized each of the distributions to take advantage of the recently announced IBM POWER8 chip with the NVIDIA NVLink interface featured on the IBM Power S822LC for HPC server.

The POWER8 with NVIDIA NVLink chip is a technology-leading processor design that is the result of open collaboration between OpenPOWER Foundation members IBM and NVIDIA. The new chip enables tight integration between IBM’s POWER8 CPU server architecture and the new Pascal architecture NVIDIA’s Tesla P100 GPU accelerators. The CPUs and GPUs integrated into the Power S822LC for HPC are connected to each other via the high-speed NVIDIA NVLink interconnect. This industry-unique interface between the CPUs and GPUs, and also between the GPUs, removes potential bottlenecks created by the PCIe interface found in most Intel x86-based servers. The PowerAI toolkit of deep learning applications takes advantage of this new NVLink-based server architecture to optimize performance of the leading artificial intelligence, deep learning and machine learning applications.

Growing Momentum for the Power S822LC for High Performance Computing
The hardware pairing for PowerAI, the IBM Power S822LC for HPC server, was launched in early September. There was immediate interest in the server, equipped with raw performance advantages, among leading research institutions, cloud service providers and business enterprises. This led to very strong demand in the third quarter, contributing to Power’s 2x year to year growth in Linux systems revenues.  

Initial client uses for the new IBM Power S822LC for HPC servers include:

  • Human Brain Project – In support of the Human Brain Project, a research project funded by the European Commission to advance understanding of the human brain, IBM, and NVIDIA deployed a pilot system at the Juelich Supercomputing Centre as part of the Pre-Commercial Procurement process. Called JURON, the new supercomputer leverages Power S822LC for HPC systems.
  • Cloud provider Nimbix – HPC cloud platform provider, Nimbix expanded its cloud supercomputing offerings this month, putting IBM Power S822LC for HPC systems with PowerAI in the hands of developers and data scientists to achieve enhanced performance.
  • City of Yachay, Ecuador Ecuador’s “City of Knowledge,” Yachay, is a planned city designed to push the nation’s economy away from commodities and towards knowledge-based innovation. Last week the city announced it is using a cluster of Power S822LC servers to build the country’s first supercomputer for the purpose of creating new forms of energy, predicting climates, and pioneering food genomics.
  • SC3 Electronics – A leading cloud supercomputing center in Turkey, SC3 Electronics announced last month at the OpenPOWER Summit Europe that it is creating the largest HPC cluster in the Middle East and North Africa region based on Power S822LC for HPC servers.

Oceana-Studie stellt fest, dass Fischfänge in EU-Gewässern um 57 % gesteigert werden könnten, wenn die Bestände nachhaltig bewirtschaftet werden

MADRID, LONDON, AMSTERDAM, BRÜSSEL und KIEL, Deutschland, November 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Befolgt die Fischerei die wissenschaftlichen Empfehlungen, dann könnten nachhaltige Fänge in Europa eine mehr als 3-fache Steigerung erzielen, wie beispielsweise beim Schellfisch und Kabeljau in der Nordsee oder bei Dorsch und Hering in der westlichen Ostsee  

Laut einer neuen Forschungsstudie, die heute von Oceana veröffentlicht wurde, könnten sich die Fischfänge in EU-Gewässern um 57% erhöhen, wenn die Fischbestände nachhaltig und auf Grundlage wissenschaftlicher Empfehlungen bewirtschaftet würden. Diese Studie entstand unter der Leitung von Dr. Rainer Froese, einem namhaften Fischereiexperten am GEOMAR Helmholtz-Zentrum für Ozeanforschung in Kiel, und stellt die bisher umfassendste Arbeit in Bezug auf die Überfischung in den europäischen Fischbeständen dar. Sie analysiert 397 Bestände im Vergleich zu den etwa 150, die von der Europäischen Kommission bewertet werden.

     (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161111/438489 )

Die neue Studie deckt auf, dass der Zustand der EU-Fischgründe alles andere als gut ist, da sich etwa 85% der Bestände in einem kritischen Zustand befinden und nur 12% die Vorgaben der gemeinsamen Fischereipolitik (GFP) erfüllen.

Zum allerersten Mal kennen wir das Erholungspotenzial der Fischbestände in Europa und das sind gute Nachrichten! Wenn wir die Bestände nachhaltig und auf wissenschaftlicher Grundlage bewirtschaften, dann können die Fänge um 57% oder 5 Mio. Tonnen höher sein, sagte Lasse Gustavsson, geschäftsführender Direktor bei Oceana in Europa. Das ist eine Menge guter und gesunder Nahrung! Es ist an der Zeit, dass wir den Fischreichtum der europäischen Meere wiederherstellen, da mehr Fische mehr Arbeitsstellen im Fischereisektor und mehr gesunden Fisch auf europäischen Esstischen bedeuten.

Eine Erholung der Fischbestände unter nachhaltiger Bewirtschaftung würde zu mehr Fisch in den Meeren führen. Dies würde höhere Fänge mit weniger Aufwand und weniger negativen Auswirkungen auf das Ökosystem erlauben. Unter den Beständen, die am meisten von einer angemessenen Bewirtschaftung profitieren würden, berechnen Wissenschaftler eine mögliche Steigerung von über 300% bei den Fängen von Schellfisch und Kabeljau in der Nordsee, oder bei Dorsch und Hering in der westlichen Ostsee.

Wir haben mit der Weiterentwicklung einer Standardmethode Zustand und Ausbeutung von annähernd 400 Fischbeständen in den europäischen Meeren bestimmt. Zum ersten Mal wurde für alle europäischen Bestände der höchstmögliche Dauerertrag (MSY) ermittelt, wie von der neuen gemeinsamen Fischereipolitik Europas (GFP) gefordert. Unsere Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Fangmengen erheblich höher sein könnten, wenn die Bestände sich erholt haben und nachhaltig bewirtschaftet werden, erklärte Dr. Rainer Froese, leitender Wissenschaftler bei GEOMAR.

Die Ergebnisse der Forschungsstudie werden einen Monat vor der Entscheidung über die erlaubten Fangmengen im Jahr 2017 im Nordostatlantik bekannt gegeben. Die Verhandlungen werden am 12. und 13. Dezember zwischen der EU und den 28 Fischereiministern während eines Meetings der Europäischen Union in Brüssel stattfinden. Oceana ermahnt die Entscheidungsträger der EU, die üblichen kurzfristigen Ansätze aufzugeben und dringt auf vorrangige Maßnahmen, um der Überfischung in den europäischen Fischgründen ein Ende zu setzen, sodass die gesetzliche Anforderung, alle Fischbestände bis 2020 wiederaufzubauen, erfüllt werden kann.

Datenblatt: Zur Wiederherstellung der europäischen Fischgründe (in englischer Sprache)

RiddleBox Launch Pulse Plus – an Innovative Business Performance Measurement Tool

Pulse Plus is Unique – the First ‘Plug & Play’ Online Business Performance Measurement Tool

RiddleBox, long established thought leaders and innovators announce the launch of Pulse Plus, the first ‘plug and play’ business management performance assessment and measurement tool.

“This has been eight years in development,” says RiddleBox co-founder Dr Ram Raghvan. “One of our clients, in an attempt to describe Pulse Plus, suggested that it was a ‘three dimensional Myers Briggs’, but that really doesn’t begin to do it justice. A better analogy would be the car servicing diagnostic tool – you effectively plug your business into Pulse Plus, run the process and then analyse the results. Our short introductory video describes it well.”

Pulse Plus is breaking new ground in the field of business performance assessment by combining the interlocking disciplines of

  • Psychology – with the Business Persona updated profiling which, unlike others, recognises and accommodates the impact of outside influences on individual behaviour and
  • Neuroscience – Riddlebox’s patented Experience Score methodology, which is equally applicable to Employees and Customers

As Jeremy Moore, Riddlebox’s other co-founder explains, “Put simply, if the brain were a computer, psychology would be concerned with the software and neuroscience the hardware. And like a computer they are interdependent.”

“Creating a powerful and positive employee experience is the single most influential factor in achieving outstanding organisation performance and ultimately competitive advantage. Until now, there was no way of objectively measuring experience, despite its importance. I know from my time coaching the GB Rowing squad how maximum performance could only be guaranteed if my rowers’ heads were in the right place emotionally. It’s the same in business, but if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Well you can now.”

Regular monitoring through the RiddleBox Pulse process sustains and builds on and enhances performance – hence Pulse Plus.

Both Ram and Jeremy agree that Pulse Plus, although revolutionary in concept, is evolutionary in application. “We’re dealing with a business’s most precious assets – its people, so progress is achieved by gaining agreement and persuasion.”

“Actually, in reality, it’s not that difficult,” claims Ram, “If the objective is to enhance an employee’s work experience because it will make the business more successful, it’s the ultimate Win – Win.”

About RiddleBox
The RiddleBox cofounders are a dynamic team who combine highly innovative thought leadership with hard headed business acumen and have a history of helping business leaders understand the dynamics between strategy, employee and customer experience to create outstanding performance. Pulse Plus represents the culmination of 8 years’ research and development to distil that process into a unique ‘plug and play’ business measurement tool.

The solution will be demonstrated at Patient First in London, 22-23 November 2016.

Accurate fluid management is linked to reduced length of hospital stay and reduced risk of mortality. However, assessments are not always performed in compliance with protocol, and documentation is not always complete or correct. Fluid balance charts help monitor patients’ fluid input, fluid output and overall hydration status, providing automatic calculations and accurate data that is accessible to all. They are essential for patients with a range of conditions, such dehydration or acute illness; patients receiving nutrition or given drugs via IV; patients being monitored following major surgery; patients with fluid restriction, with acute kidney injury (AKI) or nephritic syndrome and many more conditions.

In addition, MetaVision SafeTrack offers all the advantages of a mobile electronic observation solution, ensuring faster intervention for patients in need. It enables nurses to collect vital signs and observations at the bedside, automatically calculates early warning scores and provides options for immediate escalations to doctors, senior nurses and outreach teams. Nurses work more effectively and can prioritise care with tools for task management and shift handover. The system processes information that is collected to generate reports that help improve hospital performance. MetaVision SafeTrack is currently being implemented at NHS global digital exemplar University Hospital Southampton (UHS).

“We believe that the addition of fluid balance charts to MetaVision SafeTrack can make a significant contribution to patient safety,” said Eran David, CTO of iMDsoft. “We hope that by monitoring patients’ fluid input, fluid output and overall hydration status these charts will help our customers with early detection of potential AKI and other lethal conditions.”

G.fast takes center stage as Broadband Forum takes part in ITU Telecom World 2016

BANGKOK, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — With Ovum forecasting ITU G.fast subscribers to reach 30 million by 2025, interoperability between chipsets (for CPE and Distribution Point Units) is a complex but absolutely vital component for the industry when deploying the technology at scale.

This is the message that the Broadband Forum will deliver at ITU Telecom World 2016. Speaking as part of a panel on “Gearing up for Ultra-High Speed Networks,” the Forum’s Marketing Director Mark Fishburn will discuss the critical requirements for delivering G.fast, alongside fellow panelists Dr. Reinhard Scholl, ITU’s Deputy to the Director of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau, and David Bessonen, Senior G.fast Engineer at Telebyte, Inc.






The Broadband Forum will also exhibit at the show in conjunction with Forum member Telebyte, one of the leaders in G.fast Physical Layer testing. The company will provide a live demonstration of G.fast in a real-world test environment, including products from its ID-337 solution group – based on the Broadband Forum’s ID-337 G.fast Certification Test plan.

“As the industry continues to embrace G.fast, its success in broadband networks absolutely depends on service providers having a wide choice of equipment and this is where interoperability comes in,” said Fishburn. “The Broadband Forum’s collaboration with the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory aims to address exactly this issue and a huge amount of work is going on at the moment to achieve true G.fast interoperability.”

The Broadband Forum’s work on G.fast builds upon the success of the ITU-T, which approved its ultrafast broadband standard, designed to deliver access speeds of up to 1Gbit/s over existing telephone wires, in conjunction with the Forum’s FTTdp architecture project.

“Consumer demand for high-speed networks, including gigabit access, is increasing all the time,” said Frank Van der Putten, Rapporteur of the ITU-T Q4/SG15 experts group on broadband access on metallic conductors. “It is key that gigabit access technologies are standardized and, more importantly, that the standards organizations facilitate interoperability testing from the start. That is why the work of ITU-T and the Broadband Forum is so vital as we enter the Gigabit Era.”
