Artificial intelligence will rule the next wave of computing, enabling computers and machines to make educated decisions and perform more complex tasks.
Dell Technologies Inc. is working to bring more anthropomorphic qualities to everyday interactions between humans and AI, in time for the expected increase in AI usage.
“What is even more interesting is that from a commercial point of view, the projections are for the next five years about 90% of customers will use AI applications in a bit of a fad,” said Andrea Booker (pictured), director of server product management at Dell. “E because it’s interesting it’s because if you look at it today, only about 15% do. So, we’re early. when we’re talking about growth and opportunities, it’s amazing.
Booker spoke with CUBE industry analyst David Nicholson and Savannah Peterson at SC22, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed the role of supercomputing in shaping the near future of AI. (*Disclosure below.)
Versatility and consumer choice at the center
The company is heading towards situations where AI interactions will be nearly indistinguishable from real human interaction, and Dell’s role in that breakthrough is through hardware. But rather than accepting jobs or making workers obsolete, AI is “optimizing for faster results,” according to Booker.
Another quality of AI is that it is multidimensional and branches into machine learning and deep learning. Dell recognized the variety of the company’s accomplishments and curated the recently announced hardware to match it, Booker added.
“We want to make sure we did versatility in our offers, and we’re really meeting the customers where they are at regarding implementation e the AI workloads they have,” he said.
With the next generation XE product portfolio, Dell is balancing computing power and versatility with the infusion of the latest generation of Nvidia processors. This is the first time both companies have co-developed an eight-way product offering, according to Booker.
“But we did it so consciously that technology is emerging so much from a thermal point of view, as well as the price and other influencers,” she said. “We also wanted that choice to be cooked into our next generation of products as we enter the space.”
