The Promise of Heterogeneous Computing

In general application performance demands in all fields are now outpacing Moore’s Law, and in AI, they’re certainly increasing exponentially. To keep up, we’re already beginning to rely on specialized processors like GPUs and DSPs beyond just CPUs for specific use cases. In the future, most applications in will depend on their ability to maximize multiple types of processors in the most efficient way possible. This talk will go through different types of heterogenous hardware available today and coming up in the future, and their applicability for solving AI problems, and how normal people (not just big companies and those with access to supercomputers) can access them, with some examples.
