Benchmark tests show IBM Cloud is the fastest for AI

Bechmark tests AI cloudA set of benchmark tests published this week found that NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU accelerators on IBM Cloud provided up to 2.8 times better performance than the previous generation.

That means organizations looking to create artificial and augmented intelligence applications on the cloud can do so quickly, which is great for deep learning techniques.

IBM engineers and cloud simulation platform Rescale both conducted tests. The IBM tests were on a deep learning model for image classification, while the Rescale tests were on its own ScaleX platform, which has deep learning software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities.

“Innovation in AI is happening at a breakneck speed thanks to advances in cloud computing,” John Considine, IBM general manager for cloud infrastructure services, said.

Leap into the future with the first quantum computer anyone can use

Imagine a future in which a computer reduces the time and effort required to develop new drugs or saves lives with more accurate weather forecasting. Quantum computers find answers to complex sets of problems that today’s classical (non-quantum) computers are really bad at. Classical computers operate by sequentially manipulating “strings of bits” that can either […]
