ECE DLS: Valeria Bertacco “Beyond AI: Societal Opportunities for Future Hardware Design”

September 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Professor Valeria Bertacco, University of Michigan Title: Beyond AI: Societal Opportunities for Future Hardware Design Abstract: Computing hardware has long been a critical component in the advancement of technology. Most recently, we’ve witnessed an explosive progression in the capabilities and applications of AI, enabled in large part by AI hardware acceleration. Looking beyond the potential benefits of AI acceleration, what else can future hardware designs contribute to benefit society? In this talk, I’ll propose three emerging areas of research that are poised…

ECE DLS- Kwabena Boahen: “Dendrocentric Learning: The Future of Artificial Intelligence

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Professor Kwabena Boahen, Stanford University Title: Dendrocentric Learning: The Future of Artificial Intelligence Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) now advances by performing twice as many floating-point multiplications every two months, but the semiconductor industry tiles twice as many multipliers on a chip every two years. Moreover, returns from tiling these multipliers ever more densely now diminish because signals must travel relatively further and further. While travel can be shortened by stacking tiled multipliers in a three-dimensional (3-D) chip, such a solution acutely reduces…
