What’s next for the world’s fastest supercomputers

Posted by in category: supercomputing

Here are some more specs: Frontier uses approximately 50,000 processors, compared with the most powerful laptop’s 16 or 24. It consumes 20 million watts, compared with a laptop’s 65 or so. It cost $600 million to build.

When Frontier came online, it marked the dawn of so-called exascale computing, with machines that can execute an exaflop—or a quintillion (1018) floating point operations a second. Since then, scientists have geared up to make more of these blazingly fast computers: several exascale machines are due to come online in the US and Europe in 2024.

How new tech is helping people circumvent digital authoritarianism

Posted by in category: internet

From Iran to China to Russia, there’s an escalating ‘cat-and-mouse’ game between the censors and those trying to evade them.

I want to talk about the battle that’s raging every day between people who want to censor online content and those who want to protect access to a free and open internet.

It also relates to a recent scoop about a new Google product that’s designed to make it easier for developers to build censorship-resistant apps. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is a space worth paying attention to.

How AI can help us understand how cells work—and help cure diseases

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

A virtual cell modeling system, powered by AI, will lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of diseases, argue the cofounders of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

As the smallest living units, cells are key to understanding disease—and yet so much about them remains unknown. We do not know, for example, how billions of biomolecules—like DNA, proteins, and lipids—come together to act as one cell. Nor do we know how our many types of cells interact within our bodies. We have limited understanding of how cells, tissues, and organs become diseased and what it takes for them to be healthy.

AI can help us answer these questions and apply that knowledge to improve health and well-being worldwide—if… More.

Artificial womb human trials may soon inch closer to reality

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

CHOP researchers established the feasibility of an artificial womb called the “Biobag” to nurture a premature lamb in 2017.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold a meeting of independent advisors on September 19–20. The meeting’s agenda is to discuss the viability of clinical trials using artificial womb technology to improve the survival and health of extremely preterm newborns.

AI Startup Writer Raises $100 Million To Take On ChatGPT Enterprise

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Generative AI startup Writer has raised $100 million in a series B funding round, valuing it between $500 million and $750 million, the company announced Monday. Writer’s large language models produce content ranging from incident reports and emails to product descriptions and executive summaries, placing it squarely in competition with OpenAI’s ChatGPT Enterprise, which was launched last month, and other fast-growing unicorns like Typeface.

But despite the crowded generative AI space, Writer CEO and cofounder May Habib told Forbes that some enterprise customers are switching from Azure OpenAI over to Writer because the quality of outputs generated by ChatGPT wasn’t high enough. Her startup’s… More.

Firms like Spotify, Uber and Accenture use Writer’s generative AI tools to research, create and analyze content.
