AI processing requirements reveal weaknesses in current methods

AI processing requirements reveal weaknesses in current methods
by Tom Simon on 05-07-2018 at 12:00 pm

The traditional ways of boosting computing throughput are either to increase operating frequency or to use multiprocessing. The industry has done a good job of applying these techniques to maintain a steady increase in performance. However, there is a discontinuity in the needs for processing power. Artificial Intelligence… Read More

One of the greatest hockey players of all time, Wayne Gretzky, provided a quote that has also been applied to the business world — “I skate to where the puck will be, not to where it has been.” It strikes me that this philosophy directly applies to IP development, as well. Engineering firms providing IP must anticipate… Read More
