AMD reveals PetaFLOP supercomputer in a single rack

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, supercomputing

Yesterday, AMD revealed the Project 47 supercomputer was powered by 20 AMD EPYC 7601 processors and 80 Radeon Instinct GPUs. It is a petaFLOP supercomputer in a rack. Other hardware included 10TB of Samsung memory and 20 Mellanox 100G cards (and 1 switch). Project 47 is capable of 1 PetaFLOP of single-precision compute performance or 2 PetaFLOPS of half-precision.

Project 47 is built around the Inventec P47. The P47 is a 2U parallel computing platform designed for graphics virtualization and machine intelligence applications. A single rack of Inventec P47 systems is all that was necessary to achieve 1 PetaFLOP, and it does so while producing 30 GigaFLOPS/Watt, which AMD claims is 25% more efficient than some other competing supercomputing platforms. A petaFLOP system uses 33,333 watts. A thousand of PetaFLOP racks would use 33.3 MW and have an exaFLOP.

Thanks to its 32-core / 64-thread EPYC processors and Radeon Vega GPUs, which feature 4,096 stream processors each, AMD also claims that Project 47 rack has more cores/threads, compute units, I/O lanes and memory channels in use simultaneously than in any other similarly configured system.

More Colorful Vegetables and Fruits Can Protect You From Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Neal Barnard

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

Dr. Neal Barnard says: “More colorful vegetables and fruits, a 40-minute brisk walk, vitamin E and less dairy products, cheese, and milk can protect you from alzheimer’s and dementia.”

Dr. Neal Barnard has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on diabetes, body weight, and chronic pain, including a groundbreaking study of dietary interventions in type 2 diabetes, funded by the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Barnard has authored over 70 scientific publications as well as 17 books.

A Son Turned His Dying Father Into An Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, mobile phones, robotics/AI

When James Vlahos’ father was dying from terminal cancer, he decided to preserve as many memories as possible and code them into a chatbot (Dadbot) that could run on his cell phone.

In A Son’s Race to Give His Dying Father Artificial Immortality, James Vlahos recounts his efforts to turn the story of his father’s life — as told by his 80-year-old Dad in his final months after being diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer — into what Vlahos calls a Dadbot.

Exponential Artificial Intelligence Can Immortalize Human

Posted by in categories: biological, life extension, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Ray Kurzweil, one of the world’s leading inventors, thinkers, and futurists, with a thirty-year track record of accurate predictions and called “the restless genius” by The Wall Street Journal and “the ultimate thinking machine” by Forbes magazine, spoke at the Nobel Week Dialogue in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In this talk, Kurzweil explores the history and trajectory of exponential advances in computing and Information Technology to project how he believes Artificial Intelligence (AI) may enhance our natural biological intelligence in the future.
