We’ve had the pleasure of participating in two events over the past two weeks. I wouldn’t recommend doing two major shows back-to-back, but it has been exhilarating and quite interesting. Our “road trip” began last week in Mountain View for the second annual AI Hardware Summit. You’ve probably noticed you can go to an AI-related show every week (or more) if you like. The trick is to find one that cuts through the right applications and ecosystem.
For an ASIC and IP company like eSilicon, the AI Hardware Summit hits the mark. It’s a show that focuses on the hardware required to implement AI algorithms. As many AI shows will mix data science, advanced applications and end-user systems together, the focus on silicon at this show is very refreshing. This is the second year for the event. It was held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California on September 17 and 18. We’ve been there both years. This year’s event doubled in size, from 250 attendees to over 500. I can see where this one is going.
Our own Dr. Carlos Macián presented a thought-provoking talk entitled “Counterintuitive Intelligence: Doing More to Cost Less. A TCO Story” Carlos presented technology and specific examples of how to control the total cost of ownership of an AI hardware solution. There are definitely some surprises in the presentation. There will be write-ups and videos posted about Carlos’ presentation. Google the title over the next two weeks.
