New Geniatech Board Hits SMARC 2.1 Spec

 Geniatech has unveiled its SOM-3568-SMARC board, a modest Arm chipset that complies with the SMARC 2.1 standard for compact, low-powered systems. Brought to our attention by CNX Software (opens in new tab), the SoM looks a little like a RAM module with a 314-pin MXM edge connector. Image 1 of 2(Image credit: Geniatech)(Image credit: Geniatech)This is an industrial core board designed for use in applications such as digital signage or IoT devices, but as there's still a shortage of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (opens in

Google Shutting Down Stadia Game Streaming Service

Google is shutting down its Stadia streaming service, the company announced in a blog post. All hardware and software purchases will be refunded, and people who bought games on the platform will be able to play and access them until January 18, 2023. After that, Google will no longer sell games on the platform."A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service, Stadia," Stadia vice president and general manager Phil Harrison wrote. "And while Stadia's approach to streaming games for consumers was built on a…

Adding A Custom Attention Layer To Recurrent Neural Network In Keras

Deep learning networks have gained immense popularity in the past few years. The ‘attention mechanism’ is integrated with the deep learning networks to improve their performance. Adding attention component to the network has shown significant improvement in tasks such as machine translation, image recognition, text summarization and similar applications. This tutorial shows how to add a custom attention layer to a network built using a recurrent neural network. We’ll illustrate an end to end application…

HDD Clicker v0.2 Restores Aural Ambience of Pre-SSD Life

Retro computing enthusiast Matthias Werner has shared his design for a device that recreates the characteristic operational noise of a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD Clicker v0.2, brought to our attention by Liliputing, is said to be both nostalgic and useful. Nostalgic for the ambience, and useful for providing audible feedback in sync with data access and transfers using your shiny new SSD (Solid State Disk).(Image credit: Matthias Werner)It may be 2022, but there are still PC users out there who are only now enjoying…

The Bahdanau Attention Mechanism

Conventional encoder-decoder architectures for machine translation encoded every source sentence into a fixed-length vector, irrespective of its length, from which the decoder would then generate a translation. This made it difficult for the neural network to cope with long sentences, essentially resulting in a performance bottleneck.  The Bahdanau attention was proposed to address the performance bottleneck of conventional encoder-decoder architectures, achieving significant improvements over the conventional approach. …

Nvidia Clears the Air on GeForce RTX 40-series Power Requirements

One of the biggest questions surrounding Nvidia's GeForce RTX 40-series (Ada Lovelace) graphics cards is whether you need to upgrade your power supply. Nvidia has uploaded a new FAQ (opens in new tab) that sheds some light on Ada's power requirements for future adopters.Consumers won't need to upgrade their power supplies if the capacity meets Nvidia's wattage recommendations. The GeForce RTX 4090 has a 450W TGP, meaning you need at least a 850W unit. The GeForce RTX 4080 12GB (285W) requires a 700W power supply while…

The Luong Attention Mechanism

The Luong attention sought to introduce several improvements over the Bahdanau model for neural machine translation, particularly by introducing two new classes of attentional mechanisms: a global approach that attends to all source words, and a local approach that only attends to a selected subset of words in predicting the target sentence.  In this tutorial, you will discover the Luong attention mechanism for neural machine translation.  After completing this tutorial, you will know: The operations performed by the…

How Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, and Parag Agrawal cratered the Twitter deal, in texts

Elon Musk’s deposition for the Twitter v. Musk suit may have been rescheduled for next week, but the public got some more inside dirt about his plans for Twitter, thanks to the release of two slideshow presentations and a slew of Musk texts. The texts show Musk and a variety of contacts — including former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, entrepreneur Jason Calacanis, and podcaster Joe Rogan — talking about everything from the blockchain to putting Oprah on Twitter’s board. (That part might be a joke, but with Musk, it’s difficult…

An Introduction To Recurrent Neural Networks And The Math That Powers Them

When it comes to sequential or time series data, traditional feedforward networks cannot be used for learning and prediction. A mechanism is required that can retain past or historic information to forecast the future values. Recurrent neural networks or RNNs for short are a variant of the conventional feedforward artificial neural networks that can deal with sequential data and can be trained to hold the knowledge about the past. After completing this tutorial, you will know: Recurrent neural networks What is meant by…

Raptor Lake Review Kit Revealed, Includes Only Core i9-13900K and Core i5-13600K

Thanks to German YouTuber by the name of Caseking, we have an early look at Intel's reviewer kit for the 13th Gen Raptor Lake launch. The review kit comes in a large box, featuring a die shot of Raptor Lake printed on the inside of the box lid. Raptor Lake comes to market on October 20th.The box itself is large but skinny, with Intel's logo on the top and die shots of Raptor Lake CPUs on each side of the box. Inside the box we get a fully blown-up die shot of Raptor Lake itself which shows off the architecture in all its…
