Machine Learning Is Changing the Future of Software Testing | Emerging Tech

The majority of software development teams believe they don’t test well. They understand that the effect of quality defects is substantial, and they invest heavily in quality assurance, but they still aren’t getting the results they want. This is not due to a lack of talent or effort — the technology supporting software testing is simply not effective. The industry has been underserved.

There can’t be a successful release until software has been properly and thoroughly tested, and testing can sometimes take significant resources considering the amount of time and human effort required to get the job done right. This gaping need is just beginning to be filled.

Machine learning (ML), which has disrupted and improved so many industries, is just starting to make its way into software testing. Heads are turning, and for good reason: the industry is never going to be the same again. While machine learning is

A machine learning solution for designing materials with desired optical properties

A Machine Learning Solution for Designing Materials with Desired Optical Properties

Understanding how matter interacts with light—its optical properties—is critical in a myriad of energy and biomedical technologies, such as targeted drug delivery, quantum dots, fuel combustion, and cracking of biomass. But calculating these properties is computationally intensive, and the inverse problem—designing a structure with desired optical properties—is even harder.

Now Berkeley Lab scientists have developed a machine learning model that can be used for both problems—calculating optical properties of a known structure and, inversely, designing a structure with desired optical properties. Their study was published in Cell Reports Physical Science.

“Our model performs bi-directionally with high accuracy and its interpretation qualitatively recovers physics of how metal and dielectric materials interact with light,” said corresponding author Sean Lubner.

Lubner notes that understanding radiative properties

Amazon debuts Trainium, a custom chip for machine learning training in the cloud

Amazon today debuted AWS Trainium, a chip custom-designed to deliver what the company describes as cost-effective machine learning model training in the cloud. It comes ahead of the availability of new Habana Gaudi-based Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances built specifically for machine learning training, powered by Intel’s new Habana Gaudi processors.

“We know that we want to keep pushing the price performance on machine learning training, so we’re going to have to invest in our own chips,” AWS CEO Andy Jassy said during a keynote address at Amazon’s re:Invent conference this morning. “You have an unmatched array of instances in AWS, coupled with innovation in chips.”

Amazon AWS Tranium

Amazon claims that Trainium will offer the most teraflops of any machine learning instance in the cloud, where a teraflop translates to a chip being able to process one trillion calculations a second. (Amazon is quoting 30% higher throughput and 45% lower cost-per-inference

A machine learning model developed in Finland can help us treat cancer more effectively — ScienceDaily

When healthcare professionals treat patients suffering from advanced cancers, they usually need to use a combination of different therapies. In addition to cancer surgery, the patients are often treated with radiation therapy, medication, or both.

Medication can be combined, with different drugs acting on different cancer cells. Combinatorial drug therapies often improve the effectiveness of the treatment and can reduce the harmful side-effects if the dosage of individual drugs can be reduced. However, experimental screening of drug combinations is very slow and expensive, and therefore, often fails to discover the full benefits of combination therapy. With the help of a new machine learning method, one could identify best combinations to selectively kill cancer cells with specific genetic or functional makeup.

Researchers at Aalto University, University of Helsinki and the University of Turku in Finland developed a machine learning model that accurately predicts how combinations of different cancer drugs kill various

Cyber Monday Gaming PC deal: Save $300 on this AMD Ryzen machine with an RTX 2060

If you’re on the hunt for a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal, but don’t fancy splashing out on a high-end rig with a RTX 3080, this $300 saving on a HP Omen RTX 2060 gaming PC from Best Buy might tempt you instead. While the card is on the lower end of the RTX GPU scale, it’s still fast and will let you finally turn on those ray tracing options, and it’s backed up by a great CPU. It’s also down to $949.99 this Cyber Monday. 

The 2060 is an entry-level RTX GPU, and while it might not be as flashy as the latest generation of Nvidia’s cards, it’s still the best way to enjoy ray tracing on a budget, at least until the 3060 appears next year. And you’re also getting the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, one of the best CPUs around for its price, which is more powerful

Cyber Monday gaming pc deals

We are seeing a particular lean and emphasis on pre-built PCs with a lot of these machines from retailers and builders offering excellent Cyber Monday gaming pc deals. Getting a pre-made computer takes away the labor and research required to build your own – which is fine if you like that. The usual compromise is paying more for the service of a build, but you often get a warranty too. And what with a whole host of new graphics cards launching this year, we are seeing some still-excellent if slightly older machines get their prices discounted, and also a range of new PCs built with

This Is How Performance Art, Robotics And Electronic Sound Offer A Dialogue On Man And Machine

Man and machine have long shared a complex rapport. Yet, understanding our relation to the world and one another largely depends on an insight into the dynamics between humanity and technology. This is especially so as we tentatively navigate the fear and anxiety, wonder and potential of machine science and the information age.

This essentially is the concept behind “No One is an Island”. Instigated by BMW Group Cultural Engagement – the car company’s arm which supports arts and ideas – this ambitions projects brings together contemporary art and dance, electronic sound and new technology in a dynamic digital performance. It forms a provocative narrative on how current and future generations interact with automated and digitized processes and environments while embracing sustainability. The art piece investigates
