What the Floq: The secret mission Of Google


Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. 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.

Choosing the right Machine Learning Framework

Machine Learning Frameworks

Companies can choose to build their own custom machine learning framework, but most organizations choose an existing framework that fits their needs. In this article, we’ll show key considerations for selecting the right machine learning framework for your project and briefly review four popular ML frameworks. How to choose the right ML Framework.

Machine learning speeding up patent classifications at USPTO

US Patent and Trademark Office

Machine learning is helping the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shorten the time it takes to assign patent applications to examiners, instead of having to redo its entire classification process, according to CIO Jamie Holcombe. USPTO sent its top engineers to Google on the East and West coasts to learn more about ML and TensorFlow application programming interfaces.

Introducing Model Search: An Open Source Platform for Finding Optimal ML Models

Google Model Search

he success of a neural network (NN) often depends on how well it can generalize to various tasks. However, designing NNs that can generalize well is challenging because the research community’s understanding of how a neural network generalizes is currently somewhat limited: What does the appropriate neural network look like for a given problem? How deep should it be? Which types of layers should be used? Would LSTMs be enough or would Transformer layers be better? Or maybe a combination of the two? Would ensembling or distillation boost performance? These tricky questions are made even more challenging when considering machine learning (ML) domains where there may exist better intuition and deeper understanding than others.

3D Scene understanding with TensorFlow 3D

3D Scene understanding

The growing ubiquity of 3D sensors (e.g., Lidar, depth sensing cameras and radar) over the last few years has created a need for scene understanding technology that can process the data these devices capture. Such technology can enable machine learning (ML) systems that use these sensors, like autonomous cars and robots, to navigate and operate in the real world, and can create an improved augmented reality experience on mobile devices. r.

Why ML in production is (still) broken and ways we can fix it

By now, chances are you’ve read the famous paper about hidden technical debt by Sculley et al. from 2015. As a field, we have accepted that the actual share of Machine Learning is only a fraction of the work going into successful ML projects. The resulting complexity, especially in the transition to “live” environments, lead to large amounts of failed ML projects never reaching production.

AI/ML Model Development Platform for Embedded MCU IoT Edge Gateway

As billions of devices getting connected to the Internet is not a distant reality anymore, there are more and more number of intelligent gateways needed to act as a backbone of complex infrastructure for internet-of-things (IoT). Need for more gateways are increasing which could work on low power in constrained environments as well as having capability to process as much data as possible, also termed as edge gateway.

Training better Deep Learning Models for Structured Data using Semi-supervised Learning

In this post, we will use semi-supervised learning to improve the performance of deep neural models when applied to structured data in a low data regime. We will show that by using unsupervised pre-training we can make a neural model perform better than gradient boosting.

Google claims TensorFlow’s OpenCL can double inference performance

OpenCL vs OpenGL

Google today launched an OpenCL-based mobile GPU inference engine for its TensorFlow framework on Android. It’s available now in the latest version of the TensorFlow Lite library, and the company claims it offers a two times speedup over the existing OpenGL backend with “reasonably-sized” AI models.
