Reducing Speech-to-Text Model Training Time on Switchboard-2000 from a Week to Under Two Hours

Published in our recent ICASSP 2020 paper in which we successfully shorten the training time on the 2000-hour Switchboard dataset, which is one of the largest public ASR benchmarks, from over a week to less than two hours on a 128-GPU IBM high-performance computing cluster. To the best of our knowledge, this is the fastest training time recorded on this dataset.

Using Generative AI to Accelerate Drug Discovery

Novel drug design is difficult, costly and time-consuming. On average, it takes $3 billion and 12 to 14 years for a new drug to reach market. One third of this overall cost and time is attributed to the drug discovery phase requiring the synthetization of thousands of molecules to develop a single pre-clinical lead candidate. […]

How the brain produces a rhythm discovered almost 100 years ago

In the May issue of Communications Biology features a new paper that was done in collaboration with Prof. Miles Whittington of Hull York Medical School (U.K.) and his group. In this new paper, we describe the likely cellular mechanism of the oldest known EEG (electroencephalogram) rhythm: the alpha rhythm, at around 10 cycles per second.  […]
