    DEEPSAT: MONITORING THE EARTH’S VITALS WITH AI

    In order to better keep a finger on the pulse of the

    Earth’s health, NASA developed DeepSat, a deep

    learning AI framework for satellite image

    classification and segmentation. An ensemble of deep

    neural networks within NASA’s Earth Science and

    Carbon Monitoring System, DeepSat provides vital

    signs of changing landscapes at the highest possible

    resolution, enabling scientists to use the data for

    independent modeling efforts.

    This is just one way innovation in deep learning and AI

    has lead to a deeper understanding of our planet.

    MARENOSTRUM 4 SUPERCOMPUTER- MORE TO COME

    Barcelona's Supercomputing Center is aiming to lead the

    move in Europe from petascale to exascale computing --

    one exaflops is 1,000 petaflops -- and the newly launched

    MareNostrum 4 is just part of that shift.

    The €34m ($40m) MareNostrum 4, which recently began

    operations, is the third fastest supercomputer in Europe

    and occupies 13th place in the Top500 list of the world's

    high-performance computing systems.

    It provides 11.1 petaflops for scientific research, 10 times

    more than MareNostrum 3, which was installed between

    2012 and 2013. One petaflops is one thousand million

    million floating-point operations per second.

    ON THIN ICE: HOW AI PREDICTS MELTING OF SEA ICE

    Arctic sea ice that once foiled bold explorers and led

    sailors to their deaths is melting as the Earth warms.

    But instead of making seafaring safer, melting ice

    creates new perils for ships, and the people in northern

    communities who depend on them for food, fuel and

    other goods.

    To change that, Martin Richard, a professor at Memorial

    University of Newfoundland, is tapping GPU-powered AI

    to predict when and where ships are likely to encounter

    dangers in the Arctic ice.

    DELL EMC SUPERCOMPUTER TO POWER OZGRAV

    STUDIES OF BLACK HOLES

    Today Dell EMC announced it will build a

    supercomputer to power Swinburne University of

    Technology’s groundbreaking research into

    astrophysics and gravitational waves. Called OzStar,

    the new supercomputer will be used by the ARC

    Centre of Excellence for Gravitational Wave Discovery

    (OzGRav) to understand the extreme physics of black

    holes and warped space-time.

    The supercomputer will process incredibly large

    volumes of data coming from giant telescopes,

    searching for insights that could unlock answers about

    the Universe, reaffirming Swinburne’s position as a

    global leader in physics research.

    DOES AI VERSUS HUMAN GET UNDER YOUR SKIN?

    Does the whole ‘machine replacing man’ storyline get

    under your skin? That’s what we’re going to discuss at

    the Basel Life Conference in Switzerland this

    September.

    For example, an article in Bloomberg’s Man vs.

    Machine provocatively tells us that an algorithm

    analyzing images has now proven to be as accurate at

    identifying malignant skin lesions as 21

    dermatologists. The developer of the algorithm

    ‘envisions a future in which everyone can screen

    themselves for skin cancer with a phone’ -- in other

    words, offering supposedly more proof that it is

    inevitable that machines will replace the human.
