U-M professor’s ’fractal simulation tools’ appear in Samuel Jackson’s new ’Enslaved’ TV series

A fractal is a pattern that repeats itself at different scales. It is ideal for modeling nature: a tree is a branch of a branch of a branch; mountains are peaks within peaks; clouds are puffs of puffs, and so on.

Early Bird uses 10 times less energy to train deep neural networks

Novel training method could shrink carbon footprint for greener deep learning Rice University's Early Bird could care less about the worm; it's looking for megatons of greenhouse gas emissions. Early Bird is an energy-efficient method for training deep neural networks (DNNs), the form of artificial intelligence (AI) behind self-driving cars, intelligent assistants, facial recognition and dozens more high-tech applications.
