CaixaBank y el BSC investigarán la aplicación de la computación cognitiva a la innovación financiera

May 7th, 2016|

Esta semana en el BSC-CNS hemos podido materializar un primer acuerdo de colaboración con CaixaBank para promover conjuntamente el desarrollo de sistemas High-Performance Big-Data Analytics basados en Deep Learning para mejorar el servicio a sus clientes y optimizar la eficiencia operativa en sus servicios bancarios. Estoy extremadamente contento, es mi primer proyecto gestionado con mi rol de Senior Innovation Advisor del BSC-CNS. Espero contarles desde este blog futuros avances en los que podamos ganar todos. De momento más detalle lo pueden encontrar en nuestra nota de prensa.  

‘MareNostrum’: la supercomputadora capaz de realizar 1.100 billones de operaciones por segundo

May 2nd, 2016|

Hoy en El País en su sección "protagonistas One" de su canal de youtube presentan una entrevista titulada "'MareNostrum': la supercomputadora capaz de realizar 1.100 billones de operaciones por segundo" en que me han ascendido al cargo de "Investigador jefe del Barcelona Supercomputing Center". Cuando se entere mi jefe creo que se acabó la historia!  :-). Pero habrá valido la pena estos minutos de gloria hasta que me echen, porque creo que ha quedado un documento fantástico que aporta valor, a pesar que fue una entrevista que me costo un poco, dado el "aquí te pillo, aquí te mato" (o simplemente despiste mío de no saber a donde iba. Ya ven, me pillaron con ropa de trabajo, sin traje ni corbata! :-( ). Sin duda el mérito es del equipo [...]

Free Deep Learning Books

April 18th, 2016|

There are not many books on Deep Learning at the moment because it is such a young area of study. However there are new freely online version available of 3 books that cover beginner, intermediate and advanced levels:   Advanced level: "Deep Learning" written by top deep learning scientists Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville. The book includes coverage of all of the main algorithms in the field and can be used as a reference book by those who have experience in the field. Intermediate level: "Neural Networks and Deep Learning" written by Michael Nielsen. The book is a good place to start for those who already have experience in Machine Learning and want to delve into Neural Networks. Beginner level: "FIRST CONTACT WITH TENSORFLOW, get started with Deep Learning programming" written by Jordi Torres. The book is [...]

New release of TensorFlow with distributed computing support

April 13th, 2016|

Few hours ago Google announced his TensorFlow 0.8 that includes distributed computing support. As we already presented in this blog, distributed TensorFlow is powered by the high-performance gRPC library, which supports training on hundreds of machines in parallel according Google post. It complements the recent announcement of Google Cloud Machine Learning, which enables us to use the Google Cloud Platform. The post also announces that they have published a distributed trainer for the Inception image classification neural network in the TensorFlow models repository. The distributed trainer also enables us to scale out training using a cluster management system like Kubernetes from Google. Furthermore, once we have trained our model, we can deploy to production and speed up inference using TensorFlow Serving on Kubernetes. Beyond distributed Inception, the 0.8 release includes new libraries for defining our own distributed models. Using the distributed trainer, they trained the Inception network to 78% accuracy [...]

Mateo Valero Creu de Sant Jordi de la Generalitat a Mateo Valero

April 12th, 2016|

Fantàstic!!!!! Avui s'ha fet públic la concessió de la Creu de Sant Jordi d'enguany al director del BSC-CNS, Mateo Valero, “pel seu treball en l’àmbit de l’arquitectura de computadors, pel qual ha rebut prestigiosos premis internacionals, entre els quals l’Eckert-Mauchly 2007”. El paràgraf anterior està bé, però m'agradaria ser més prosaic i dir que se la mereix amb escreix perquè és un pencaire que ha aportat molt de valor al País. Per posar un exemple molt evident, entre molts, aconseguir que Barcelona sigui referent mundial de la Supercomputació amb un gran centre de recerca que aporta molt de valor, directe i indirectament, a la economia i projecció d'aquest País. Això té molt de valor, que ningú ho dubti. Feliciteu-lo, perquè sens dubte s'ho mereix i fins i tot permeteu-me dir que ja trigavem! Si voleu més detall, [...]
