This week, Google announced that they would begin exploring the use of geothermal energy to provide power for data centres in Nevada, through a partnership with clean energy startup Fervo. The companies plan to use AI applications to overcome the challenges that have held back geothermal use till now – and they expect that they will begin adding power to the local grid by 2022.
The University of Florida will soon house academia’s most powerful AI supercomputer following an agreement with chipmaker Nvidia to revamp its HiPerGator system with Nvidia’s latest HPC technology.
Nvidia claimed HiPerGator will deliver 700 petaflops of AI performance once it has been upgraded with the chipmaker’s latest DGX SuperPOD architecture — the tech behind Nvidia’s own supercomputer, Selene, which ranks seventh in Top500’s global supercomputer rankings.
DeepMind researchers have developed a new AI technique that generates reinforcement learning algorithms by interacting with environments.
In a study posted on pre-print server Arxiv.org, researchers from the innovative AI firm claimed the algorithms were a dab hand at some of Atari’s most complex games, suggesting the technique could be used to discover generalisable reinforcement learning algorithms from data alone.
ETH Zurich in Switzerland is one of the most highly regarded science and technology universities, one known for its cutting-edge research and innovation.
When it come to data centres, the pinnacle of innovation right now centres on how data analytics, sensors and AI can be used to improve power and performance.
Over the last few years, a group of researchers from both ETH Zurich and the University of Bologna has been at the forefront of advanced data centre monitoring research.
There is a constant stream of innovation happening in storage technology, and the hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) market is leading the way. According to this report, the HCI market is expected to be worth $17.1 billion by 2023. This projected growth could be put down to the myriad of advantages that HCI offers, including single-pane-of-glass management, reduced rackspace and power which means greener data centres, and improved disaster recovery capabilities to list a few.
