Happy Presidents Day! Next Monday is a federal holiday here in the United States and many folks have the day off – me included.
In-Memory Computing Blogs and Events
NoSQL databases, such as Apache Cassandra, are the best-known example of eventually consistent systems. A contract of such systems is simple -- if an application triggered a data change on one machine, then the update will be propagated to all the replicas at some point in time -- in other words, eventually.
My colleague, GridGain’s Lead Architect Valentin "Val" Kulichenko, is hosting a free webinar today at 11 p.m. Pacific time that will give you the tools and blueprint to build your very own distributed database using the open-source Apache® Ignite™

Computational Biologists Find Inspiration for Machine Learning Cell Cycle Sorting Method in an Unlikely Place
The lifespan of cells in the human body varies greatly, from as short as a few days, such as those in our stomach lining, to the cells in our bones, which live for 25-30 years. And for each healthy cell, no matter how long it lives, there is a tightly coordinated series of events that […]
The phrase, “the more things change, the more they stay the same” is a loose translation of comments by Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, a 19th-century French writer and critic. If that sentiment was ever true in technology, it is certainly a glaring anachronism in today’s environment. Change is the only constant these days. We are experiencing a significant convergence of technology and cultural megatrends, such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), high-speed connectivity and immersive experiences, that will forever change how we live, work, play and learn.
As leaders of this digital transformation, Intel and Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, collaborated to modernize the cloud infrastructure and deliver differentiated cloud services to markets around the world. The two companies work closely to optimize hardware and software technologies across Alibaba Cloud’s data centers.
As leaders in cloud, 5G and network technology, Intel and…

Back in the day, when today’s parents were software engineers, whenever you built large-scale systems you had to size everything.
Apache Spark* has emerged as a game-changer for big data processing in recent years. According to Wikibon, the adoption of Apache Spark is gaining momentum and will reach a growth rate of 72% by 20191. With its open-source, in-memory architecture, Spark can process and analyze not only batch data but massive volumes of streaming data in real-time. Another key benefit of Spark is its ability to train machine and deep learning models at scale as well as handle an entire analytics pipeline.
Intel has made significant technical contributions to the Apache Spark community including an Intel-led open source initiative called BigDL. BigDL is a distributed library for deep learning applications. Unlike a number of other libraries for building deep learning applications, BigDL is native to Apache Spark. With BigDL, you can write deep learning…
IBM Research Wins ISSCC Lewis Winner Award for 4th Time in 15 Years
If research in silicon chips were a sport, the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference would be its Olympics, and the Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper the equivalent of the 100 meter gold medal. As announced during the plenary session of ISSCC 2018 today, IBM Research has won this coveted award for the 2017 conference […]
London-based FSB Technology (UK) Ltd., which provides real-time sports betting platforms as a fully-managed service, is relying on GridGain Enterprise Edition to ensure real-time performance and scalability of their PostgreSQL-based system in the f
Meet the IBM Inventor Who Built his First Circuit at 8
National Inventors’ Day is a day to honor inventors and their genius. At the IBM Research Lab in Zurich, the list of inventors is long, but we were able to catch up with one of your newly appointed Master Inventors, Lukas Czornomaz, who talks about his career and some of the patents that were granted along […]
Let’s continue the conversation about the store of the tomorrow. Which we must be planning and implementing today.
About ten minutes away and down the hill is a retail site in the midst of transformation.
It’s at the intersection of two major high-traffic urban thoroughfares. Reasonable parking in front. With a tasty catchment area of hipster Millennials in nearby apartments and X- and boomer professionals in single-family dwellings.
At one time, it was the local—and successful—muffler and brakes automobile repair shop. Then shuttered. Then abandoned to graffiti and broken windows.
And now to be a combination laundromat, coffee shop, and performance area. All in one.
Seeing this come together got me thinking about the purpose of tomorrow’s store, and indeed, the opportunities for a retail brand to create profitable shopper affinity. The I-choose-this brand-without-thinking type of affinity that pays off in ever-higher shares…
