Over the next several weeks we’ll be releasing the videos from the sessions from the BootstrapLabs Applied AI Conference 2018. The yearly conference organized by BootstrapLabs, a leading Venture Capital firm focused on Applied AI, that brings together over 800 members of the Artificial Intelligence community for a day of incredible speakers and exciting conversations.
- Tom Campbell, Founder & President, FutureGrasp, LLC
- Madhav Thattai, Chief Operating Officer, Rigetti Computing
- Sateesh Kumar, Founder, Pathtronic
During this session, the speakers discussed the future of computing in the age of AI, Neuromorphic and Quantum computing and edge use cases and applications.
Some of the key takeaways from the session are:
- The death of Moore’s Law as originally define has given birth to a variety of them depending on the technology leveraged: neuromorphic, quantum, among others.
- There’s a shift in the industry from bigger companies to focus on creating their own use-case-specific chip architecture.
- We need to bring more power to edge computing to really provide AI solutions that work and leverage insights in real time.
