Architecting the Interference

Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we'll augment our intelligence.” —Ginni Rometty

Artificial intelligence takes center stage in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Ron Lowman  (Synopsys - Author of The DNA of an Artificial Intelligence SoC) joins us to discuss the similarities inherent in AI chip design, the challenges of the multiple subsegments of AI, and what the next couple years holds for our AI chip design progress. Also this week, we take a closer look at DARPA’s new KAIROS (Knowledge-directed Artificial Intelligence Reasoning Over Schemas) program. We investigate how it will work (with a little help from a bunch of humans) and how it may (some day) be able to discern patterns of connected events to help mankind better understand the world around us.
