THE IMPACT OF CHIPS ON AI & ETHICS
- A ChatGPT-Powered Primer on Machine-Learning Chips
- The Humans in the Loop
- The Future of Chips
How will advancements in chips drive the deployment of AI? And what impact will that have on society’s ability to deploy AI ethically?
These are the questions we asked chip experts Jon Peddie, Oskar Mencer, and Matt Keener last week at the first roundtable discussion in our latest Future in Review Action Tank series, “Chips & the Ethical Deployment of AI.”
We wanted to better understand the intersection between hardware and machine learning, how new chip architectures will shape the future of artificial intelligence, and what moral hazards and opportunities might lie ahead.
So we called in a trio of the smartest folks we know on the topic to help us understand the playing field:
Jon Peddie, PhD, is a recognized pioneer in the graphics industry, is president of Jon Peddie Research, and has been named one of the world’s most influential analysts. He is an ACM Distinguished Speaker, an IEEE Distinguished Visitor, and an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Contributor and charter member. He lectures at numerous conferences and universities on topics about graphics technology and the emerging trends in digital media technology.
Formerly president of Siggraph Pioneers, Jon serves on the advisory boards of several conferences, organizations, and companies and contributes articles to numerous publications. In 2015, he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the CAD Society. Jon has published hundreds of papers, written 10 and co-authored a half-dozen technical books (including Augmented Reality: Where We All Will Live, Ray Tracing: A Tool for All, and his latest, the three-book series The History of the GPU), as well as two fictional titles.
Oskar Mencer received a PhD from Stanford University following studies at the Computer Systems Laboratory with Prof. Michael J Flynn. He had received an earlier degree in computer engineering from the Technion in Israel. Oskar worked for Rockwell, DIGITAL, Hitachi Central Research Laboratories in Japan, and Bell Labs before starting Maxeler Technologies in 2003 and enjoying the variety of holding the CEO position until today, even through Groq’s acquisition of Maxeler in 2022.
