Visual aesthetics are very personal, often subconscious, and hard to express. In a world with an overload of photographic content, a lot of time and effort is spent manually curating photographs, and it’s often hard to separate the good images from the visual noise. The question we put forward at EyeEm is: can a machine […]
At GDC 17 Microsoft announced the addition of NVIDIA hardware performance counters to PIX. PIX is Microsoft's DirectX 12 performance tuning and debugging tool for game developers. The counters are implemented using PerfWorks, NVIDIA's C++ API. Nearly 300 counters are exposed giving developers a deeper insight into the performance and rendering of their applications than was previously possible.
Ishtar Nyawira, a data science intern at the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center shares how she is using deep learning and the GPU-accelerated Bridges supercomputer to automate the process of biological image annotation from high-resolution scanning electron microscope (SEM) imagery. The goal of the project is to ultimately understand how the neurons in our brains are wired.
Iowa State University researchers are developing a deep learning-based system to help the Iowa Department of Transportation improve incident detection and support operator decision-making. “There is more data than you could ever imagine coming out of this system,” said Neal Hawkins, the associate director of Iowa State’s Institute for Transportation. “We’re getting data every 20
Deep learning, a branch of artificial intelligence is revolutionizing modern computing. It is being used to develop solutions that range from improved cancer screening to self-driving cars. It has been used to create art, play games and deliver customer insights. NVIDIA brought presentations, demos and training materials to GDC17.
