Cognitive Computing: AWS, Google, & IBM Introduce New AI/ML/DL Servers

Cognitive Computing: AWS, Google, & IBM Introduce New AI/ML/DL Servers

Cloud HPC w/ NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs + AWS P3, Google TPU2, & IBM Power9 Processors

Cognitive Computing includes elements from Artificial Intelligence (AI), Deep Learning (DL), and Machine Learning (ML), primarily through a combination of training neural networks from data sets and processing information through established algorithms. Decades of research in computer science internationally has led to major advances in using this technology in practical ways, for example: robotics, data mining, speech recognition, autonomous or self-driving vehicle navigation, pharmaceutical discovery, image/video processing, risk management, complex system modeling, meme generation, customer behavior pattern discernment, product recommendations in ecommerce, etc. Neural Networks date back as far as 1944 to the work of Warren McCullough & Walter Pitts (University of Chicago/MIT), forming key aspects of the Cybernetics (1940-60s), Connectionism (1980-90s), and Deep Learning (2006-present) movements. Recent developments in cloud computing and hardware design have led to IT majors and Fortune 500 corporations implementing an "AI-First" strategy, where companies like eBay, Uber, SAP, Dropbox, AirBNB, Snapchat, Twitter, Qualcomm, ARM, and many others have already invested heavily in launching live production applications. In 2017, NVIDIA, Google, AWS, IBM, Facebook, AMD, and Microsoft all made major announcements about new AI/ML/DL platform technology, including for the first time making this advanced hardware available to businesses, researchers, and developers on the cloud computing model to integrate with existing web hosting and data center tools. These platforms also scale to perform as supercomputers in High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, processing "big data" in real-time and solving complex math, science, and research problems through the power of new GPU/TPU chip designs optimized for ML requirements.

Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS): Docker & Kubernetes Platform Comparison

Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS): Docker & Kubernetes Platform Comparison

Red Hat OpenShift, CoreOS Tectonic, Cloud Foundry, Fabric8, Canonical, & Mirantis Cloud

Docker was founded in 2010 by Solomon Hykes as an internal project of the PaaS company dotCloud and part of the Y Combinator start-up fund. In 2013, Benjamin Golub joined the company as CEO and the pair navigated a hugely successful pivot to focus on container software development, leading to a total of $237 million USD in venture capital seed funding in Silicon Valley. According to Sramana Mitra, Docker received funding from Goldman Sachs, Coatue, Northern Trust, Lightspeed Venture Partners, AME Cloud Ventures, Trinity Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Greylock Partners, Benchmark, Sequoia Capital, Jerry Yang, and Insight Venture Partners, ultimately leading to a valuation of the company of over $1.3 billion USD and "unicorn" status. Kubernetes was first announced in 2014 as an open source project growing out of Google's internal "Borg" platform, with version 1.0 released in 2015 under the management of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Kubernetes automates cloud orchestration for containerized applications, allowing them to scale beyond the single server model to support the highest levels of enterprise web traffic. Both Docker and Kubernetes have seen huge adoption across all business sectors internationally in the last few years, becoming the foundation of best practices in DevOps as companies seek to modernize their legacy software applications and transition to fully embrace advanced cloud computing web server architecture. This year, Steve Singh moved from his role as Docker's Chairman of the Board to replace Golub as the CEO of the company.

AWS re:Invent 2017: Elastic Kubernetes Cloud Servers & Fargate Orchestration

AWS re:Invent 2017: Elastic Kubernetes Cloud Servers & Fargate Orchestration

Amazon Launches 1300 New Services for AWS Cloud Architecture: Sagemaker & DeepLens

AWS (Amazon Web Services) hosted their 6th Annual re:Invent conference in Las Vegas this year with over 40,000 people attending conference sessions and 60,000+ watching the proceedings on livestreams. Andy Jassy, the CEO of AWS, and Werner Vogels, VP & CTO at Amazon.com, both gave extensive keynote addresses introducing the major new product announcements. The highlights of the sessions were the unveiling of a new Elastic Kubernetes Cloud Service platform (EKS) along with the Fargate administration service for container management and cloud orchestration. AWS also announced several major new cloud services that can be used by developers in their applications for live, real-time transcription of audio/video through speech-to-text processing based on Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) which can be used for translation of data to different languages. AWS further increased the number of ways that programmers can build upon the Alexa platform for voice recognition in their applications, as well as unveiling a new DeepLens technology in partnership with Intel which represents a quick and easy way for businesses to get started building smart image & video recognition technology into their platforms using Sagemaker & Greengrass with Hyperparameter Optimization (HPO) through a number of built in AI/ML/DL algorithms. With $18 billion in annual revenue at AWS, 42% year-on-year business growth, and millions of active customers, Jassy summarized the developments by stating that "nobody has close to the functionality that AWS has" on their hosting platform at this time, including the comparable services offered by Microsoft, Google, IBM, & Oracle.

DrupalCon Vienna 2017: Driesnote & State of Drupal Address

DrupalCon Vienna 2017: Driesnote & State of Drupal Address

Enterprise Content Management Scales to Over 1 Billion Page Views Per Month

DrupalCon Europe is an annual gathering for the Drupal open source development community with independent software vendors, web design companies, and representatives of the enterprise IT business ecosystem coming together at this year's event in Vienna, Austria over September 26-29th, 2017. Drupal founder and Acquia CTO Dries Buytaert gave the "State of Drupal" address to the assembly highlighting the main ways that the CMS, business ecosystem, and network of global interrelationships between community members is growing through changes as internet usage patterns evolve on new technology platforms through shifting social paradigms. Decoupled or Headless CMS usage is one of the biggest new trends in the current web development landscape with much of the latest technical work on Drupal 8 core dedicated to keeping the user interface (UX) of the software broadly competitive with the functionality offered by WordPress, Facebook, and other SaaS/PaaS companies "out of the box" for a better customer experience. Around 50% of the professional software developers using Drupal currently are also integrating Node.js and JavaScript frameworks like Angular into unique solutions to create custom web/mobile applications for clients. Buytaert is advocating for the adoption of the React JavaScript framework into Drupal 8.x core for an easier to navigate CMS in web publishing.
