The terrain that slopes gently towards the sea is typical of Cap Ferret: a small forest of strawberry tree, yucca, and pines. The challenge was to design a project that would exist in harmony with its surrounding landscape and have a limited impact on the existing vegetation.Save this picture!© Philippe GarciaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Philippe GarciaThe house echoes forest cabins and the multiple openings serve to accentuate its relationship to nature. Its implantation allowed to preserve a maximum of existing trees, and the façade uses mostly wood to mimic the pine grove around it.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe construction blends into the topography of the terrain. The spaces were designed for a large sibling so that everyone while getting together, can still benefit of intimacy and calm. The «cabins» are connected to one another through a series of terraces. A large internal curved lines stairway exists in counterpoint to the triangular openings and the other diagonal lines that frame the views of the surrounding nature.Originally published on August 31, 2017Save this picture!© Philippe GarciaSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Philippe GarciaSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBrickface House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRestaurant Gütsch / Studio Seilern ArchitectSelected Projects Share Holiday House in Cap Ferret / Atelier du Pont Area:  330 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeAtelier du PontOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLège-Cap-FerretIcebergFrancePublished on May 09, 2020Cite: “Holiday House in Cap Ferret / Atelier du Pont” 09 May 2020.

Consultation process on a new action plan for apprenticeship launched

first_imgNewsBusinessEducationConsultation process on a new action plan for apprenticeship launchedBy Staff Reporter – August 4, 2020 242 Limerick social entrepreneurs honoured for their work in response to covid-19 Twitter Print Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Linkedin Previous articleWeekly Racing News: Galway double for Billy LeeNext articleDates and Venues Decided for FAI Semis Staff Reporter Email Advertisementcenter_img Facebook WhatsApp THE LAUNCH of the consultation process to help develop a new action plan for apprenticeship has been announced which “will help place apprenticeships at the heart of enterprise and education in this country”.Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD and Minister of State for Further Education and Skills Niall Collins TD have announced the launch of the consultation process to help develop a new action plan for apprenticeship.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The number of people registering for an apprenticeship has risen from 3,153 in 2015 to 6,177 in 2019.However, just 2.7 per cent self-declared as having a disability and 4 per cent of the apprentice population was female.Minister Simon Harris said apprenticeship is “apprenticeship is a joint effort between employers and employees” which give the apprentice an opportunity to “earn and learn from the employer”.He said, “Last week, I announced a new recruitment incentive for employers where they can earn €3,000 for each apprentice they take on.“We know our apprenticeship model needs to be revised and this consultation is the beginning of that process. We also know we need to expand the model and change people’s mind set of what an apprentice is and is not.“The apprentice model is no longer confined to craft trades. It has expanded to the financial services sector, to ICT and accounting.“Now we must look to expand it to where skillsets are most needed including in the area of childcare and the health service and crucially where it may be needed in the future.“This consultation process will be crucial to the success of the new plan and the future of our apprenticeship system and I encourage people to have their say.”Building on actions set out in the Programme for Government and the Further Education and Training Strategy, which was launched in July, the Action Plan for Apprenticeship will set out a five-year pathway to embed apprenticeship in enterprise and will provide a comprehensive set of actions designed to increase the diversity of learners who chose apprenticeship programmes.Speaking today, Minister Collins said: “Apprenticeship has changed radically over the past five years.  There are now 55 apprenticeship programmes across all sectors of the economy, in areas such as international financial services and insurance to technology and the built environment.”“The new action plan provides a chance to build on the lessons learned from the introduction of new programmes and the experience of the past to deliver a robust and dynamic governance and funding system which will help place apprenticeships at the heart of enterprise and education in this country.”Apprentices are employed by their sponsoring company and apprenticeship provides a robust educational pathway while giving apprentices the chance to build on workplace skills and experience throughout their programme. In addition to the 55 apprenticeship programmes currently available, a further 23 programmes are in development to be rolled out during 2020 and beyond.Depending on the programme, apprenticeships take from 2-4 years to complete and currently cover from level 5-9 of the National Framework of Qualifications.Further information on apprenticeship may be found at Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites TAGSbusinesseducationIrelandLimerick City and CountyNews RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Limerick on Covid watch listlast_img read more

Making AI, HPC and GPUs Easier for Data Scientists

first_imgWith new GPU-ready containers and server infrastructure, organizations are simplifying the deployment of artificial intelligence applications and the clusters they run on.Regardless of the domains they work in, researchers, data scientists and developers want to focus on the work they do, not the systems and tools they use to run their workloads. While that’s a simple proposition, the reality on the ground is often far removed from this ideal world.Those who have built artificial intelligence and other high-performance computing applications from the ground up — starting with bare-metal servers, computing frameworks, software libraries and more — understand that there is a lot of heavy lifting required up front. This work always comes first, before you can focus on the work you really want to do, like training your model, running your inference workloads and seeing the results.Together with its partners, NVIDIA is working to rewrite this story. It’s making the deployment of GPU-accelerated systems really easy with its NVIDIA GPU Cloud, or NGC.The NGC container registryVia the NGC container registry, NVIDIA provides a catalog of GPU-accelerated containers that deliver easy-to-deploy GPU-accelerated software for AI, machine learning and HPC. These containers, which are available to download at no charge, alleviate many of the headaches that come with setting up software. They help you get up and running quickly with tested, optimized and updated frameworks and applications. The containers are designed to take full advantage of NVIDIA GPUs, on-premises or in the cloud, and to work across a wide variety of NVIDIA GPU platforms.The NGC container registry is simple to use. When you visit the site, you are prompted to answer a simple question: “What are you interested in working on?” To move forward, you simply select one of six options from a catalog: High Performance Computing, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Inference, Visualization, or Infrastructure. Once a selection is made, you can begin working with, say, the Caffee2 deep-learning framework or the LAMMPS software application for molecular dynamics simulations. After that, you can move forward with the confidence that comes with knowing your software is correctly configured.The NGC-Ready hardwareSoftware, of course, is only part of the problem when it comes to deploying large-scale HPC and AI applications. You also have to find the right hardware infrastructure to run your workloads. NVIDIA makes this process easier with its NGC-Ready program. Through this program, hardware vendors validate that the NGC containers run correctly on their servers and workstations.Dell EMC is an active participant in this program. Our NGC-Ready infrastructure, including the Dell EMC PowerEdge C4140 server, has been tested and validated to run containers from the NVIDIA GPU Cloud. This back end work allows organizations to deploy GPU-accelerated Dell EMC systems with the confidence that comes with knowing they are ready to run NGC containers.And that’s just one part of the work that Dell EMC does with NVIDIA. My team works closely with the engineers at NVIDIA to optimize systems, perform benchmark testing and take other steps to help ensure that you and others can get the full value of GPU acceleration when deploying NGC containers on Dell EMC hardware.For example, some users worry that containerizing an application will hurt performance. Through our lab and benchmark testing, we’ve been able to show that little, if any, performance is lost when you containerize your software, as opposed to starting with software that you deploy on bare-metal servers. We put a special focus on proving the potential of using containers in large-scale simulations and deep learning applications. In our lab, we find containers to be portable and efficient as we scale out deep learning workloads.Even better, we’re demonstrating how the container approach makes life easier for data scientists and other users who are venturing into the brave new world of AI and machine learning. With the right frameworks incorporated into an NGC container and deployed on our NGC-Ready hardware, you can take advantage of GPUs for deep learning by adding just a few lines of code — literally. You add the lines of code and you gain the benefits of GPU acceleration, with no need to port your application code to a new platform.Ready Solutions for AIIn another ongoing initiative, our engineers at Dell EMC work closely with their counterparts at NVIDIA to bring systems to market that are optimized for GPU-enabled deep learning applications. That’s the case with our Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI, which are optimized for deep learning with NVIDIA GPUs.These Ready Solutions provide a GPU‑optimized stack that can shave valuable time off of deep learning projects. If that’s your goal, Dell EMC engineers can help you configure, test and tune your GPU‑enabled hardware and software, so you can get up and running quickly with a top-tier deep learning platform based on a framework that can use both CPUs and GPUs. These solutions even include services to help your data scientists discover insights from data in less time.Key takeawaysIf you take a step back and look at the big picture, you’ll see that there are a lot of resources available to help your organization deploy AI and HPC-driven applications that take advantage of the power of GPU acceleration, and to do so with the confidence that comes with validated and optimized hardware and software solutions.I think you’ll also see that it’s becoming much easier to get into this game than it was just a handful of years ago. Today, end users no longer need to become experts in the underlying technology to capitalize on GPU-accelerated systems and the power of AI and other HPC-fueled applications. Instead, they can keep their eyes of the real prize — the work they do.To learn moreFor a closer look at the technologies that make it all go, explore Dell EMC solutions for high-performance computing and artificial intelligence.last_img read more

first_imgMLB has reduced Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly’s suspension from eight games to five on appeal, the team announced Wednesday (per the Los Angeles Times and received eight games for throwing a fastball over the head of Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and for taunting Houston shortstop Carlos Correa in a game July 28. Kelly’s interaction with Correa led to the benches emptying. Baseball’s decision to ban Kelly was met with widespread disapproval inside the game. Multiple players saw the move as one more instance of MLB protecting the Astros after they admitted cheating in their 2017 World Series championship season by stealing signs with video technology.The Astros defeated the Dodgers in that year’s Series, and they also eliminated the Red Sox in the ALDS. Kelly was a member of that Boston team and pitched in the series.Kelly is on the injured list with shoulder inflammation. He will begin serving his suspension when he returns to LA’s active roster. MORE: Dodgers honoring, supporting Kelly in a unique wayHouston manager Dusty Baker said after the game that there was no place in baseball for a pitcher throwing near a batter’s head. Kelly argued the pitch was unintentional, saying his control was off.last_img read more
