If you have cash to burn, racks to fill, problems to brute-force, Nvidia has an HGX-2 for you

Bypass: psychedelica

OK, you've gone and trained your AI. You've spent God only knows how much only to be defeated by tie-dye psychedelic clothes and prismatic reflectors. That, and even with "good" data your algorithm has devised a new way to recognize grass and differentiate between sunny and cloudy days.

Somehow, this feels like big data for the sake of big data. How much of any of this has improved sales? "We implemented AI in the sales department, and gross profits lept 50%." Maybe not. Has AI picked stocks better than a dart board? Not that I've heard. IBM fired most people in Watson Health. The killer AI app is autopilot for cars.

Snake oil and suckers, and then do it on a computer.
