Ephemeral

Edge Computing + Serverless Computing = Ephemeral Computing

What is Edge Computing? The concept of Edge Computing defines it as a networked computing component that resides at the periphery of the network. As such it functions as an interface between the network and the physical world. The “edge” can be composed of devices like cameras, sensors or actuators. Edge Computing is based on […]

There are fundamental Problems how we train AI

The current machine learning training and testing process is not rigorous enough to ensure that the models being trained will work in the real world. During the training process many different models can be produced that all perform equally well when tested in lab settings and differ only in small, arbitrary ways. The differences stem […]

Here’s why Artificial Intelligence is so power-hungry

Artificial intelligence is getting more expensive to develop, and the cost is growing faster than the energy efficiency of the models. This is because they are trained many times with different structures, and the best one is selected. For example a model called Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) used 3.3 billion words from English books […]
