NVIDIA's CUDA - GPU Tech Conference for 2017 -- Quantum Mechanics has a piece - NVIDIA Deep Learning Cloud

Post by Cr6 on Tue Mar 06, 2018 5:56 pm

Worth a look in terms of topics.
GTC 2017 Talk:


At about 1 hour in Final Fantasy's King's Glaive demo'ed with the Illuminus Engine.
Astronomy piece mentioned just after.
...

They had a quick plug on the GPU in the Cloud for Deep Learning which was kind of cool using the Volta chip:


NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) provides researchers and data scientists with simple access to a comprehensive catalog of GPU-optimized software tools for deep learning and high performance computing (HPC) that take full advantage of NVIDIA GPUs. The NGC container registry features NVIDIA tuned, tested, certified, and maintained containers for the top deep learning frameworks. It also offers third-party managed HPC application containers, NVIDIA HPC visualization containers, and partner applications.

OPTIMIZED DEEP LEARNING FRAMEWORKS

NGC empowers AI researchers with performance-engineered AI containers featuring deep learning software like TensorFlow, PyTorch, MXNet TensorRT, and more. These pre-integrated, GPU-accelerated containers include NVIDIA®️ CUDA®️ runtime, NVIDIA libraries, and an operating system. Plus, they’re tuned, tested, and certified by NVIDIA to run on NVIDIA DGX™️ systems​, NVIDIA TITAN (powered by NVIDIA Volta and NVIDIA Pascal™️), and Amazon EC2 P3 instances with NVIDIA Volta. This lets users tackle challenges that were once thought to be impossible while eliminating difficult, time-consuming DIY software integration.

Been playing with CUDA and Nvidia cards for decades now, although AMD offers great cards as well. I'd love to learn how to leverage parallel GPU power to drive our physics sims and demonstrations, but it's just so time consuming to learn and feels so daunting!

Some recent claims about AMD's chips...may need to wait and see the impact and if it is really something to worry about.  Shocked  

https://www.amdflaws.com/


What happened?

13 Critical Security Vulnerabilities and Manufacturer Backdoors discovered throughout AMD Ryzen & EPYC product lines.

Am I affected?


Any consumer or organization purchasing AMD Servers, Workstations, or Laptops are affected by these vulnerabilities.

What is this site for?

This site is to inform the public about the vulnerabilities and call upon AMD and the security community to fix the vulnerable products.

The company is a ghost, only started up some six months ago, and its IPs don't track. Its "website" is garbage and isn't even https: yet, something highly suspect about a "tech company" focused on security exploits. Even my Wordpress sites all run as https. Having an SSL isn't very expensive.

There will surely be some flaws in this brand-new Zen architecture, but this whole event stinks of a smear campaign. Intel lashing out, perhaps. Either the company or the people.

Incidentally, only Nvidia GPUs can run CUDA applications, not AMD GPUs. You could of course run CUDA applications on an AMD CPU/APU, using a discreet Nvidia graphics card (which are all I use, ever, despite using only AMD CPUs and APUs, ever). Just thought I'd mention that part. AMD exploits wouldn't have any effect on CUDA, that I can see.

Thanks Jared.
Yeah, the more I was looking around this appears to be classic "FUD":


The alleged vulnerabilities are categorized into four classes—RYZENFALL, FALLOUT, CHIMERA, and MASTERKEY—and threaten wide-range of servers, workstations, and laptops running vulnerable AMD Ryzen, Ryzen Pro, Ryzen Mobile or EPYC processors.

Discovered by a team of researchers at Israel-based CTS-Labs, newly disclosed unpatched vulnerabilities defeat AMD's Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) technology and could allow attackers to bypass Microsoft Windows Credential Guard to steal network credentials.

Moreover, researchers also claimed to have found two exploitable manufacturer backdoors inside Ryzen chipset that could allow attackers to inject malicious code inside the chip.

Might just be an attempt on a stock play as well:

Actually, it is now free. I use Let's Encrypt for my site which gives free 90 day SSL certificates and has an auto update tool that acquires a new one when the current one runs out. Before that it would have cost me about $150 a year which is why I didn't have it. It might not sound like much but you put that on top of the cost of running a site and it adds up for a small site like mine. Now that Google is forcing the issue, you can't have a site without it anymore.

This guy, Brandon Wirtz, may have a device to test the "Truthiness" of a big claim like this. He's worth following:

On a regular basis people tell me about their impressive achievements using AI. 99% of these things are completely stupid. This post may come off as a rant, but that’s not so much its intent, as it is to point out why we went from having very few AI experts, to having so many in so little time. Also to convey that most of these experts only seem experty because so few people know how to call them on their bull shit.
So you built a neural network from scratch… And it runs on a phone.
Great. So you converted 11 lines of python that would fit on a t-shirt to Java or C or C++. You have mastered what a cross compiler can do in 3 seconds.

Interesting is subjective. I had a client that wanted us to us AI to remove the mosaic from Japanese porn. We had pretty decent success. That is an “interesting” problem by most standards.

I am also working on automating cancer research by extracting information relevant to a patient from all of the medical journals ever published. This has led to off-label uses of drugs to treat and slow cancers.

I am also working on finding classified ads that are for the sale of humans as sex slaves.

And I built a fake news detector, unpartial . I am not sure there is a “most interesting” it is what do you like that can be solved with AI. (I wasn’t so into the porn one unusual and interesting are often synonyms, but I suspect you meant, “Rewarding,” or “intellectually stimulating” and the porn was the latter not the former.

...

BTW, this looks like that young guy that got arrested back in 2002 for uncapping his cable modem:

Broadband Reports: Interview
Brandon Wirtz, prosecuted for uncapping
by Karl Bode
Tuesday Jan 07 2003 12:39 EDT

When Brandon Wirtz and several other Buckeye Cable customers decided to uncap their modems, they assumed the worst that could happen was that they'd be disconnected. As we reported last November, they were wrong. Wirtz was greeted at his home by FBI agents, had most of his electronics confiscated, and faces hundreds of thousands in fines, legal fees, and lost revenue. Wirtz updates us on his case's progress, and gives his thoughts on his adventures through the Ohio legal system.

BBR: Can you perhaps introduce yourself and offer some insight into the kind of projects you were working on before your run-in with Buckeye?

To introduce my self I am a 23 year old entrepreneur. I work primarily with companies that produce streaming media for the internet. I specialize in solutions for tracking and securing content. My recent projects include the MS Xbox Campaign in the UK, EA Sports FIFA/World Cup campaign, Levis Rub, and others both domestic and in Europe. In addition to these viral marketing campaigns I also publish books on implementing Windows Media, QuickTime, and DivX in to distance learning, presentations, and other video solutions.

BBR: You uncapped your modem how exactly, and for how long?

Let me start by saying that there is no doubt in anyone's mind among those of use who were accused were uncapping. We all were. Uncapping in and of itself is not illegal, and in most cases is not even a violation of the TOS.

Ok, on to how. This is the quick and dirty, not a how to: Buckeye was using the cable config files that CISCO provides as a docsis reference. So there was no need to defeat any security. I just went out to (Cisco's website) used the TFTP software I use to configure routers and pushed up gold.cm to my cable modem.
