Intel, Phillips accelerate deep learning on CPUs in medical imaging uses

Using Intel Xeon scalable processors and the OpenVINO toolkit, Intel and Philips tested two healthcare use cases for deep learning inference models: one on X-rays of bones for bone-age-prediction modeling, the other on CT scans of lungs for lung segmentation. In these tests, Intel and Philips achieved a speed improvement of 188 times for the bone-age-prediction model, and a 38 times speed improvement for the lung-segmentation model over the baseline measurements. Until recently, there was one prominent hardware solution to accelerate deep learning: graphics processing unit, or GPUs. By design, GPUs work well with images, but they also have inherent memory constraints that data scientists have had to work around when building some models. Central processing units, or CPUs, in this case Intel Xeon Scalable processors don't have those same memory constraints and can accelerate complex, hybrid workloads, including larger, memory-intensive models typically found in medical imaging. For a large subset of artificial intelligence workloads, Intel Xeon Scalable processors can better meet data scientists' needs than GPU-based systems. As Philips found in the two recent tests, this enables the company to offer AI solutions at lower cost to its customers. AI techniques such as object detection and segmentation can help radiologists identify issues faster and more accurately, which can translate to better prioritization of cases, better outcomes for more patients and reduced costs for hospitals. Deep learning inference applications typically process workloads in small batches or in a streaming manner, which means they do not exhibit large batch sizes. CPUs are a great fit for low batch or streaming applications. In particular, Intel Xeon Scalable processors offer an affordable, flexible platform for AI models , particularly in conjunction with tools like the OpenVINO toolkit, which can help deploy pre-trained models for efficiency, without sacrificing accuracy. These tests show that healthcare organizations can implement AI workloads without expensive hardware investments. The results for both use cases surpassed expectations. The bone-age-prediction model went from an initial baseline test result of 1.42 images per second to a final tested rate of 267.1 images per second after optimizations - an increase of 188 times. The lung-segmentation model far surpassed the target of 15 images per second by improving from a baseline of 1.9 images per second to 71.7 images per second after optimizations.

Intel downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari downgraded Intel (INTC) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $44 from $49. The chipmaker closed yesterday up 18c to $50.14. Hari coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of AMD (AMD) to Neutral from Sell. Intel's struggles with 10nm process technology makes the analyst incrementally more negative on the company's competitive positioning and margin outlook. He expects a worsening product mix in the near-term, ramp in 10nm costs and growing depreciation to drive margin pressure and Intel's earnings below consensus expectations. Hari sees downside risk in the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Toshiya Hari saying Intel's struggles with 10nm process technology makes the analyst incrementally more negative on the company's competitive positioning and margin outlook. 2. Booking Holdings (BKNG) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi and UBS as well as Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 3. Sysco (SYY) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Pivotal Research with analyst Ajay Jain saying he believes the move up in the stock over the past three months is inconsistent with growing industry headwinds as well as Sysco's company-specific issues. 4. Campbell Soup (CPB) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Ken Goldman saying he agrees with activist Third Point that Campbell's best option is to sell the company; however, he sees a sale as an unlikely outcome. 5. Redfin (RDFN) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson with analyst Tom White citing its Q2 results and below-consensus Q3 guidance.

Fly Intel: Today's top analyst calls on Wall Street
Check out today's top analyst calls from around Wall Street, compiled by The Fly. GOLDMAN CUTS INTEL, UPGRADES AMD: Goldman Sachs analyst Toshiya Hari downgraded Intel (INTC) to Sell from Neutral and lowered his price target for the shares to $44 from $49. Hari coupled the downgrade with an upgrade of AMD (AMD) to Neutral from Sell. Intel's struggles with 10nm process technology made the analyst incrementally more negative on the company's competitive positioning and margin outlook. He expects a worsening product mix in the near-term, ramp in 10nm costs and growing depreciation to drive margin pressure and Intel's earnings below consensus expectations. The delay in Intel's new products will allow AMD to gain share in not only client computer processing units, and also in the "lucrative" server CPU market, Hari contended. He believes this makes for a balanced risk/reward profile on AMD shares. In late morning trading, Intel is down 2.5% and AMD is up fractionally. BOOKING HOLDINGS DOWNGRADED AT MULTIPLE FIRMS: UBS analyst Eric Sheridan downgraded Booking Holdings (BKNG) to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $2,060 from $2,320 following the company's Q2 results. JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth downgraded Booking Holdings to Neutral from Overweight and lowered his price target for the shares to $2,070 from $2,385. Additionally, Citi analyst Mark May downgraded Booking Holdings to Neutral from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $2,150 from $2,350. Booking Holding is down over 2% in late morning trading. JPMORGAN CUTS CAMPBELL SOUP TO UNDERWEIGHT: JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman downgraded Campbell Soup (CPB) to Underweight from Neutral with a $36 price target, saying he believes a sale of the company at a significant premium is unlikely. Campbell Soup is down over 2% in late morning trading. CANTOR SEES MANY REASONS FOR UNITEDHEALTH ACQUIRING ATHENAHEALTH: Numerous media sources cited a Dealreporter story indicating that UnitedHealth (UNH) is now in the second round of bidding for Athenahealth (ATHN), Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper said in a research note. There are "many reasons" why UnitedHealth's Optum would benefit from the acquisition of Athenahealth, the analyst contended. With or without the deal, the analyst expects UnitedHealth will deploy capital and grow its various Optum businesses over time. He reiterated an Overweight rating on shares with a $300 price target.

Macom downgraded to Underweight with $21 price target at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur downgraded Macom Technology Solutions (MTSI) to Underweight with an unchanged price target of $21. With the stock above his price target, the analyst believes the market is already discounting "strong forward earnings power." The analyst also see the potential for margin pressures on current generation discrete Macom-based white box transceiver reference designs for 100G CWDM4 modules amid competition from Intel (INTC), Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI), and InnoLight.
