The rise of artificial intelligence, and the GPU computing hardware that often supports it, is reshaping the data center industry’s relationship with power density.
IBM is a leader in artificial intelligence research and their poster child, Watson, became a household name after defeating two Jeopardy champions in 2011. Since then, IBM has been developing Watson as a platform, creating cloud APIs for customers to utilize in new ways to accelerate their workflows.

Widespread anxiety about artificial intelligence (AI) presents a challenge for companies building the new generation of AI technologies, as well as the data centers that will power them. The tech sector is trying to change that.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence have arrived in the data center. This trend is changing the face of the hyperscale server farm, as racks begin to fill with ASICs, GPUs, FPGAs and supercomputers.
