IBM Develops Preprocessing Block That Will Boost Machine Learning

International Business Machines (IBM) Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, Developed a New Generic Module preprocessing that could speed up the machine learning algorithms. (19459003)

According to IBM Zurich mathematician, Thomas Parnell, they developed a generic solution for the artificial intelligence learning process. an acceleration of 10 times.

"To the best of our knowledge, we must first have a generic solution with an acceleration of 10x.For more precisely, for the traditional and linear machine learning models – which are widely used for data sets that are too large for neural networks – we have implemented techniques on the best reference schemes and demonstrated a minimum of 10x. "

Potential benefits of new development for # 39; IA industry

According to the research laboratory, the main purpose of the invention is to improve the speed at which AI machines can learn new information. ]

The block, which uses mathematical duality to filter vital information into a data stream and ignore those that are not, is primarily designed for machine learning of big data.

Despite its great potential, there is a lot of work to be done to improve the block and before it can be ready for a commercial application.

The company plans to continue to develop the system in the cloud of IBM, where it will be called Dua. lity-Gap-Based Heterogeneous Learning.

The company can make the most of this discovery, given the current strong trend in the artificial intelligence industry. It remains to be seen, however, whether the company will succeed in perfecting this new technology and how it will work in the real world in the near future.

Other Blockchain efforts

IBM, along with other technological players such as Oracle and Sony, they are investing heavily in projects related to Blockchain, including included partnering with banks for faster and more efficient financial transactions, and helping to deploy Blockchain in government operations.
