For Sale – Cheap HP Pavilion 12″ laptop – £75

Hi

Continuing my clear out of old IT bits… I have an old HP Pavilion dv2 laptop, model 1125ea. This was at the time a ‘thin and light’ laptop – as such it doesn’t have DVD drive.

HP Pavilion DV2-1125ea

  • AMD Athlon X2 Neo Processor (L335, dual core 1.6GHz, 512KB L2 Cache)
  • 12.1” Screen 1280×800
  • Windows 10 Home (originally came with Windows Vista Home Premium Edition)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 320GB HDD
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 graphics (shared memory)
  • Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, 3x USB, Full size SD card reader, headphone & mic connections
  • Wifi and bluetooth (wifi tested working with my home network)

Comes with laptop and original charger only. I don’t think I have the original box.

Note that the laptop is ‘used’ – please see photos for details of the various marks and scratches. In particular, there is a large scratch (which is ‘deep’) on the top of the laptop, near the hinge. The battery holds a charge – I haven’t done any recent testing of it, but happy to take a look.

I haven’t used it properly for a while but it appears to be functioning fine. These AMD processors always ran fairly hot, which you can feel/notice when laptop is in use, and the fan does spin up (never bothered me, but, your mileage may vary!).

The original HP Windows Vista recovery partition is still on the laptop and functional. The laptop has been wiped, HP recovery used, and then upgraded to Windows 7 and then Windows 10. The laptop has a digital Windows 10 entitlement. All of the drivers seem to be correct and present, but the extra software ‘bloatware’ HP loaded it with originally was mainly not compatible with Windows 7/10 and thus has been removed.

Prefer collection from South London or near Euston (where I work). Alternatively, will post cheapest, slowest, insured service (unless you want to pay extra). Not sure what this is worth, so let’s say £75.

Price and currency: £75
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Bank transfer
Location: London / Devon
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

Scale up your deep learning with Batch AI preview

Imagine reducing your training time for an epoch from 30 minutes to 30 seconds, and testing many different hyper-parameter weights in parallel. Available now, in public preview, Batch AI is a new service that helps you train and test deep learning and other AI or machine learning models with the same scale and flexibility used by Microsoft’s data scientists. Managed clusters of GPUs enable you to design larger networks, run experiments in parallel and at scale to reduce iteration time and make development easier and more productive. Spin up a cluster when you need GPUs, then turn them off when you’re done and stop the bill.

Developing powerful AI involves combining large data sets for training with clusters of GPUs for experimenting with network design and optimization of hyper-parameters. Having access to this capability as a service helps data scientists and AI researchers get results faster and focus on building better models instead of managing infrastructure. This is where Batch AI comes in as part of the Microsoft AI platform.

“Deep learning researchers require increasing computing time to train complex neural networks with big data. Large computing clusters on Microsoft Azure is one of the solutions to resolve our researchers’ pain, and Azure Batch AI will be the key solution to connect on-premises and cloud environments. Preferred Networks is excited to integrate Chainer & ChainerMN with this service.” –Hiroshi Maruyama, Chief Strategy Officer, Preferred Networks, Inc

Secret-to-AI

Joseph Sirosh, Corporate Vice President of the Cloud AI Platform, spoke at the recent Microsoft Ignite conference about delivering Cloud AI for every developer with a comprehensive family of infrastructure for AI in Azure, services for AI, and tools to make AI development easier. Batch AI is part of this infrastructure, enabling easily distributed computing on Azure for parallel training, testing, and scoring. Scale-out to as many GPUs as you want.

There’s a great demo in Joseph’s Ignite talk (25 minutes in) that shows an end-to-end experience of data wrangling, training at scale, and using a trained AI model in Excel. The model was developed initially using a Data Science Virtual Machine in Azure, then scaled out to speed up experimentation, hyper-parameter tuning, and training. Using Batch AI, our data scientists were able to scale from 1 to 148 GPUs for the model, reducing training time per epoch from 30 minutes to 30 seconds. This made a huge difference in productivity when you need to run thousands of epochs. Our data scientists were able to experiment with the network design and hyper-parameter values and see results quickly. A version of the code behind this demo will available as a tutorial to use with Batch AI and Azure ML Machine Learning Services and Workbench.

What is Batch AI

Batch AI provides an API and services specialized for AI workflows. The key concepts are clusters and jobs.

Cluster describes the compute resources you want to use. Batch AI enables:

  • Provisioning clusters of GPUs or CPUs on demand

  • Installing software in a container or with a script

  • Automatic or manual scaling to manage costs

  • Access to low priority virtual machines for learning and experimentation

  • Mounting shared storage volumes for training and output data

A job is the code you want to run — a command line with parameters. Batch AI supports:

  • Using any deep learning framework or machine learning tools

  • Direct configuration of options for popular frameworks

  • Priority-based job queue for sharing a GPU quota or reserved instances

  • Restarting jobs if a virtual machine becomes unavailable

  • SDK, command line, portal and tools integration

Building systems of intelligence

Dr. Yogendra Narayan Pandey, Data Scientist at Halliburton Landmark, used Azure Batch AI and Azure Data Lake to develop predictive deep learning algorithms for static reservoir modeling to reduce the time and risk in oil field exploration compared to traditional simulation. He shared his work at the Landmark Innovation Forum & Expo 2017.

“With the huge amounts of storage and compute power of the Azure cloud, we are entering the age of predictive model-based discovery. Batch AI makes it straightforward for data scientists to use the tools they already know. Without Azure Batch AI and GPUs, it would have taken hours if not days for each model training job to complete.”

Batch AI includes recipes for popular AI frameworks that help you get started quickly without needing to learn the details of working with Azure virtual machines, storage, and networking. The recipes include cluster and job templates to use with the Azure CLI interface, as well as Jupyter Notebooks that demonstrate using the Python API.

End-to-end productivity

The Batch AI team is working to integrate with Microsoft AI tools including the Azure Machine Learning services and Workbench for data wrangling, experiment management, deployment of trained models, and Visual Studio Code Tools for AI.

E2E-AI

Partners around the world are also using Batch AI to help their customers scale-up their training to Azure and its powerful fleet of NVIDIA GPUs.

“We have long needed a service like Azure Batch AI. It is an appealing solution for deep learning engineers to speed up deep neural network training & hyper parameter search. I’m looking forward to creating end-to-end solutions by integrating our deep learning service CSLAYER and Azure Batch AI.”  –Ryo Shimizu, President & CEO of UEI Corporation

Getting started

We invite you to try Batch AI for training your models in parallel and at scale in Azure. We have sample recipes for popular AI frameworks to help you get started. We recommend starting with low priority virtual machines to minimize costs.

With Batch AI, you only pay for the compute and storage used for your training. There’s no additional charge for the cluster management and job scheduling. Using low priority virtual machines with Batch AI is the most cost-effective way to learn and develop until you are ready to leverage GPUs.

The team would like to hear any feedback or suggestions you have. We’re listening on Azure Feedback, Stack Overflow, MSDN, and by email.

Workday DaaS benchmarking services provide HR analytics

For the first time, Workday is offering DaaS benchmarking services the company said would extend the capabilities of its cloud platform and provide timely benchmarking metrics based on big data.

HR and IT professionals will be able to develop apps and compare the age, diversity and tenure of their workforce against similar employers, or quickly analyze talent retention rates across industry sectors.

Workday unveiled the data-as-a-service benchmarking, analytics and application development capabilities at its Workday Rising user conference in Chicago, which is overlapping with the industry’s biggest conference the same week.

The introduction came a day before the start of the HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas Oct. 10 to 13, and joined a wave of new technology announcements from major HCM suite vendors, including Oracle and Ceridian.

Customers must opt in for service

To use Workday DaaS benchmarking services, customers must legally agree to share their chosen categories of HR and finance data with Workday; the company will then aggregate the de-identified data and merge it with data from participating Workday employer clients around the world, and other data sources.

Dan Beck, senior vice president, WorkdayDan Beck

“We’re giving customers the ability to not just plan and execute – we’ve had that for some time now — but also to analyze,” Dan Beck, senior vice president of product marketing and technology strategy at Workday, told SearchHRSoftware.        

The Pleasanton, Calif. vendor originally revealed plans for its Workday Prism Analytics system last year after it acquired Platfora, a big data analytics platform developer. Workday also announced its benchmarking strategy in 2016.

Beck said the DaaS product is available immediately in Workday’s Release 29, while Prism Analytics will have “limited availability” in the current release and general availability in the second half of next year.

HCM analytics competition stiff

With the benchmarking move, Workday has bolstered its offerings in a competitive HCM analytics arena already filled with the likes of software giants Oracle and SAP and native HR tech vendors such as Ultimate Software.

We are not trying to compete with the likes of Amazon, Google, Azure, but we are going to offer services that make sense for Workday.
Dan BeckSVP of product marketing and technology strategy, Workday

Beck said the Workday DaaS benchmarking services would compete vigorously with benchmarking technology from ADP, the payroll outsourcing and HCM mega-vendor, which claims to have data points from 33 million workers in its cloud.

However, Beck acknowledged that Workday is only now embarking on building its data storehouse while ADP already has wide-ranging benchmarking capabilities across industries and HR categories.

Even so, he maintained that Workday would build its benchmarking data store quickly and that Workday clients would soon begin to benefit from Workday’s fully integrated and cloud-based HCM suite.

‘Sizeable number’ of customers plan to join

He noted that Workday has 26 million workers under contract with its 1,800 clients around the world, and said a “sizeable number” of customers have already said they would join the benchmarking program.

“We need customers to participate in the benchmark to populate the benchmark,” Beck said. “The really compelling data customers want around compensation, makeup of their workforce, is going to come from customers opting in.

“Even with a modest acceptance rate of taking us up on our offer, we’ll have very compelling benchmarks,” he said.

In addition to workforce composition and turnover and career retention benchmarks, Workday said in a release that its customers would also have access to a growing catalog that will include benchmarks on:

  • leadership and management effectiveness;
  • Workday usage, including system utilization and business process; and
  • financial management.

As it has traditionally, Workday emphasized in its new releases what it characterized as superior security and integration with software that provides current, reliable data in the right context of the sections of Workday its customers use most.

Workday suggests wide use of HR analytics

The company accentuated the self-service aspects of Prism Analytics in particular, saying the HR analytics capability would be usable throughout an enterprise.

Workday also showed a new user interface based on a smartphone-like card metaphor and optimized for desktop and mobile.

Beck, in the interview with SearchHRSoftware, also focused on what he said was the more advanced adaptability of the vendor’s technology ecosystem along with new extendibility of the Workday cloud HCM platform.

“We are not trying to compete with the likes of Amazon, Google, Azure, but we are going to offer services that make sense for Workday,” Beck said. “You want to build a page or a presentation service for Workday — you can. You want to access our machine learning algorithms for artificial intelligence — you can.

“We’re going to open up lots of applications … so you can build essentially enterprise-grade mashups across the entire Workday application footprint,” he said.

For Sale – iMac 27” 5k, late 2015, big spec with long warranty

The time has come to sell on my iMac. I bought it a few months ago from its original owner, I have the receipt, which shows it was bought direct from Apple in 2016. I am therefore the second owner.

I have added some RAM and the AppleCare Protection Plan.

Full spec:

MK482LL/A, Model A1419, ID 17.1
27″ Retina 5K display, 5120×2880 LED backlit IPS DCI-P3.
3.3GHz Intel quad-core i5 CPU (turbo charged to 3.9GHz), 6th generation.
16GB 1867MHz DDR3 memory. Add more via the user accessible rear slots (2 free), up to 32GB (officially) or 64GB (unofficially).
512GB Apple SSD. I thought a Fusion drive was quick but this is something else! Blackmagic Speed Test app results speak for themselves – see pic. Boots up to desktop in under 20 seconds. Phenominally fast, will handle anything you throw at it.
AMD Radeon R9 M395 2GB graphics card.
MacOS Sierra v10.12.6. Clean install with known “admin” user and password or I can reset the iMac so you can setup from scratch.
Magic Keyboard and Magic Wireless Mouse 2 plus lightning charge cable – no batteries required. Mouse has a couple of smudge/scuff marks on top (see pic) but nothing that prevents normal use. Keyboard excellent with minor scuffs to the back – can’t seem to capture them with my camera.
Comes with inner white box and outer brown shipping box, plus original purchase receipt via an email attachment.

Apple are asking £2,069 on their refurbished site for this exact spec, with just a years warranty so as well as being far cheaper, you’re also getting around 22 months warranty.

The iMac is near perfect condition, just a tiny (really tiny!) mark to the top side of the base plate (pic 9) – can’t be seen unless you put your face right down to it. The mouse has a few scuff marks to the top side, the keyboard has a few scuffs to the underside.

Will happily transfer the AppleCare to the new owner, though in actual fact, the AppleCare ‘moves’ with the iMac. Simple process, fully endorsed by Apple and takes 3-5 days.

I thought a 2TB Fusion drive was quick but this 512GB SSD is even faster, booting to the desktop in under 20 seconds. A truly capable machine that will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. See Blackmagic speed test results in second post below, likewise proof of AppleCare.

Collection only – that way you’ll get a chance to try it out before taking it away, plus I can’t be doing with couriers and the risks associated with it. Likewise cash/BT only, no Paypal. Has been fully reset with known ‘admin’ user and password.

Price and currency: £1595
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: BT or cash on collection
Location: Saffron Walden
