Cognitive Computing: AWS, Google, & IBM Introduce New AI/ML/DL Servers

Cognitive Computing: AWS, Google, & IBM Introduce New AI/ML/DL Servers

Cloud HPC w/ NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs + AWS P3, Google TPU2, & IBM Power9 Processors

Cognitive Computing includes elements from Artificial Intelligence (AI), Deep Learning (DL), and Machine Learning (ML), primarily through a combination of training neural networks from data sets and processing information through established algorithms. Decades of research in computer science internationally has led to major advances in using this technology in practical ways, for example: robotics, data mining, speech recognition, autonomous or self-driving vehicle navigation, pharmaceutical discovery, image/video processing, risk management, complex system modeling, meme generation, customer behavior pattern discernment, product recommendations in ecommerce, etc. Neural Networks date back as far as 1944 to the work of Warren McCullough & Walter Pitts (University of Chicago/MIT), forming key aspects of the Cybernetics (1940-60s), Connectionism (1980-90s), and Deep Learning (2006-present) movements. Recent developments in cloud computing and hardware design have led to IT majors and Fortune 500 corporations implementing an "AI-First" strategy, where companies like eBay, Uber, SAP, Dropbox, AirBNB, Snapchat, Twitter, Qualcomm, ARM, and many others have already invested heavily in launching live production applications. In 2017, NVIDIA, Google, AWS, IBM, Facebook, AMD, and Microsoft all made major announcements about new AI/ML/DL platform technology, including for the first time making this advanced hardware available to businesses, researchers, and developers on the cloud computing model to integrate with existing web hosting and data center tools. These platforms also scale to perform as supercomputers in High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, processing "big data" in real-time and solving complex math, science, and research problems through the power of new GPU/TPU chip designs optimized for ML requirements.

Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS): Docker & Kubernetes Platform Comparison

Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS): Docker & Kubernetes Platform Comparison

Red Hat OpenShift, CoreOS Tectonic, Cloud Foundry, Fabric8, Canonical, & Mirantis Cloud

Docker was founded in 2010 by Solomon Hykes as an internal project of the PaaS company dotCloud and part of the Y Combinator start-up fund. In 2013, Benjamin Golub joined the company as CEO and the pair navigated a hugely successful pivot to focus on container software development, leading to a total of $237 million USD in venture capital seed funding in Silicon Valley. According to Sramana Mitra, Docker received funding from Goldman Sachs, Coatue, Northern Trust, Lightspeed Venture Partners, AME Cloud Ventures, Trinity Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Greylock Partners, Benchmark, Sequoia Capital, Jerry Yang, and Insight Venture Partners, ultimately leading to a valuation of the company of over $1.3 billion USD and "unicorn" status. Kubernetes was first announced in 2014 as an open source project growing out of Google's internal "Borg" platform, with version 1.0 released in 2015 under the management of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Kubernetes automates cloud orchestration for containerized applications, allowing them to scale beyond the single server model to support the highest levels of enterprise web traffic. Both Docker and Kubernetes have seen huge adoption across all business sectors internationally in the last few years, becoming the foundation of best practices in DevOps as companies seek to modernize their legacy software applications and transition to fully embrace advanced cloud computing web server architecture. This year, Steve Singh moved from his role as Docker's Chairman of the Board to replace Golub as the CEO of the company.

News from DrupalCon 2017: Developments in Decoupled Drupal & Ecommerce

Acquia Releases the Reservoir Distribution for Decoupled Drupal & OpenEDU for Online Learning

DrupalCon North America, the largest and most important annual convention for Drupal developers, took place this year in Baltimore (April 24-28, 2017) with Drupal founder and Acquia CTO Dries Buytaert delivering the keynote address. One of the new innovations in the Drupal platform that received a lot of attention at the convention was the advancement of various strategies for decoupling Drupal in order to separate the frontend and backend processes in a manner that allows for content to be streamed to multiple devices via APIs, overriding the standard theme-driven system of publication. Use of JSON API & OpenAPI, as implemented in the recent Reservoir distribution from Acquia for decoupled Drupal installs, can turn the Drupal CMS into a publishing engine that can be used with IoT devices, augmented reality applications, voice recognition systems like Alexa, fitness wearables, AI chatbots, and other next-generation software platforms that extend beyond the web browser. The 2017 DrupalCon featured 12 main session tracks with 175+ seminars & featured speakers, as well as a convention hall with thousands of IT company booths, all representing the vibrancy of Drupal's open source development community.
