This white paper, "Why Developers are Turning to Ultra-powerful Workstations for More Creative Freedom at Less Cost," from Dell Technologies discusses why developers are turning to ultra-powerful workstations for more creative freedom at less cost. Research shows that large and small companies alike are using powerful workstations with even more powerful graphic processing units (GPUs) as integral parts of their artificial intelligence infrastructure.

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has announced to make over 93 million euro available to 21 interdisciplinary research projects aiming to bring scientific and societal breakthroughs within reach. The projects are receiving funding under the second round of the Dutch Research Agenda Programme: "Research along Routes by Consortia" (NWA-ORC). One of the grants (4,5 million euro) is going to the Quantum Inspire consortium, an interdisciplinary collaboration with several public and private partners. It means the consortium will be able to bring quantum technology closer to potential users across society..
The push by established datacenter tech vendors to get into the as-a-service game has accelerated in recent months, fueled in part by the COVID-19 pandemic and the need by organizations to more quickly embrace cloud services to help them adapt to the suddenly shifted business model that features a more widely distributed workforce, which brings a truckload of security and management issues. …
