At TechEmergence, we often talk about the software capabilities of AI and the tangible return on investment (ROI) of recommendation engines, fraud detection, and different kinds of AI applications. We rarely talk about the hardware side of the equation, and that will be our focus today. For hardware companies like Nvidia, stock prices have soared thanks to the popularity of new kinds of AI hardware being needed not only in academia but also among the technology giants. Increasingly, AI hardware is about more than just graphics processing units (GPUs).
Today we interview Mike Henry, CEO of Mythic AI. Mike speaks about the different kinds of AI-specific hardware, where they are used, and how they differ depending on their function. More specifically, Mike talks about the business value of AI hardware. Can specific hardware save money on energy, time, and resources? Where can it drive value? Where is AI hardware necessary to open new capabilities for AI systems that may not have been possible with older hardware? What is the right business approach to AI hardware?
This interview was brought to us by Kisaco Research, which partnered with TechEmergence to help promote their AI hardware summit on September 18 and 19 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View California.
