Google's $5 Mn Funded AI Institute Will Explore Human-AI Interactions

Google recently the launch of new Artificial Intelligence Institute for research aimed at boosting R&D on interaction between people and AI. Launched in collaboration with the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the National AI Research Institute for Human-AI Interaction will focus on areas such as speech, written language and gestures to make it more effective.

Google will provide $5 million as funding for supporting the institute, along with offering AI expertise, research collaborations and cloud support for the researchers to conduct advanced AI research in the field.

“Research projects will engage a diverse set of experts, educate the next generation and promote workforce development, and broaden participation from underrepresented groups and institutions across the country,” said the company in a blogpost.

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

Google Announces General Availability Of AI Platform Prediction

Recently, the developers at Google Cloud announced the general availability of the AI Platform Prediction. The platform is based on a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) backend and is said to provide an enterprise-ready platform for hosting all the transformative ML models.

Emerging technologies like machine learning and AI have transformed the way most processes and industries work around us. Machine learning has brought various significant features that require predictions, such as identifying objects in images, recommending products, optimising market campaigns and more.

However, building a robust and enterprise-ready machine learning environment can include various issues like it being time-consuming, costly as well as complex. Google’s AI Platform Prediction takes into account all these issues to provide a robust environment for ML-based tasks.

In March this year, the tech giant launched the AI Platform Pipelines in beta version to ensure in delivering an enterprise-ready and a secure execution environment for the machine learning workflows.

According to the developers, this new platform is designed for various functions in machine learning models such as improved reliability, more flexibility via new hardware options such as Compute Engine machine types and NVIDIA accelerators, reduced overhead latency, and improved tail latency.m.
