Adoption of smart speakers has grown rapidly over the past year. The rise of voice assistants and voice search is expected to boost demand for processing power and data storage.
Insights: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Machine learning and artificial intelligence have arrived in the data center, changing the face of the hyperscale server farm as racks begin to fill with ASICs, GPUs, FPGAs and supercomputers. The race to leverage machine learning is led by the industry’s marquee names, including Google, Facebook and IBM. As usual, the battlefield runs through the data center, with implications for the major cloud platforms and chipmakers like Intel and NVIDIA.
Clearly, machine learning can and has been used to achieve greater data center cooling efficiency. While most data centers are not yet equipped to do the same, the theory behind how machine learning can optimize cooling efficiency is fairly well understood. Sabey Data Centers’ John Sasser, Sr. Vice President of Data Center Operations, takes a look at how machine learning presents both challenges and opportunities for today’s data center cooling technology.
Can voice assistants play a role in the data center? Bill Kleyman argues that they can, and says data center managers are intrigued about the possibilities for voice technology.
Natural language processing (NLP) is a type of artificial intelligence that allows machines to understand meaning behind various speech processes. Bill Kleyman looks at considerations in using NLP in your IT operations.
By 2025, “smart” will become the new normal, according to IDC. In the age of smart devices and applications, interactions with data – and data centers – will become a part of everyday life.
Demand for data center services is being fed by streams of data from a wide variety of emerging technologies. In our Data Driven series, Data Center Frontier is examining emerging technologies that are generating large volumes of data, and how their growth will impact data centers.
