Here’s an interesting look at what the next decade holds for AI and why hardware is going to be a big part of it.
“What we see happening in the transition to now and toward 2020 is what I call the coming of age of deep learning,” says Singer, pictured below with an NNP-I chip, tells The Next Platform. “This is where the capabilities have been better understood, where many companies are starting to understand how this might be applicable to their particular line of business. There’s a whole new generation of data scientists and other professionals who understand the field, there’s an environment for developing new algorithms and new topologies for the deep learning frameworks. All those frameworks like TensorFlow and MXNet were not really in existence in 2015. It was all hand-tooled and so on. Now there are environments, there is a large cadre of people who are trained on that, there’s a better understanding of the mapping, there’s a better understanding of the data because it all depends on who is using the data and how to use the data.”
