Intel’s data center chief talks machine learning — just don’t ask about GPUs

If you want to get under Diane Bryant’s skin these days, just ask her about GPUs.

The head of Intel’s powerful data center group was at Computex in Taipei this week, in part to explain how the company’s latest Xeon Phi processor is a good fit for machine learning.

Machine learning is the process by which companies like Google and Facebook train software to get better at performing AI tasks including computer vision and understanding natural language.

Intel’s new SSDs are advance scouts for NVMe

With its latest SSDs, Intel is paving the way for fast, standard NVMe connections in storage systems for both more and less adventurous users.

Intel is one of the biggest boosters of NVMe (non-volatile memory express), designed as a standard controller technology for PCI-Express interfaces between CPUs and flash storage. It wants to help create a large ecosystem around NVMe and other high-speed storage technologies that could, in turn, help to drive demand for more powerful CPUs. While SSDs (solid-state drives) dramatically boost storage performance over spinning disks, it takes high-speed interfaces like PCIe to make full use of that advantage.
