Artificial Intelligence (AI) has moved from the domain of universities to businesses. It is easy to get lost in the new terms, not to mention the deep math, that let machines assist humans—be it phone unlocking, password protection, or detecting criminals. This talk provides a foundation for understanding AI’s entry to general IT.
The AI/ML/DL domain has moved from HPC scientists to everyday conversation. The language and technology of Cognitive and AI solution flavors are spanning infrastructure options — System z, POWER and x86. Fold in the DL frameworks and algorithms and a whole new taxonomy and considerations needs to be understood. There is a continuum where all of these platforms can work together — be it training performance, development functionality or scoring latency. This overview session will explain, explore, document and place the continuum of AI approaches and use cases into context for non-data scientists.
