Join Rambus for a webinar exploring how Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) is a key enabler for Artificial Intelligence (AI). Featuring Frank Ferro, senior director of product management for memory interface IP at Rambus, and Shane Rau, research vice president, computing semiconductors at IDC, this webinar will cover the rapid advancement of AI and how DRAM is evolving in response.

As AI scales to the diversity of human tasks, tailored DRAM solutions will be a key part of the many hardware solutions that emerge. AI will become as ubiquitous in electronic systems as the human beings who use those systems, and DRAM technologies like GDDR6 and HBM2 will be critical to enabling these AI systems.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How AI data processing presents silicon opportunities
  • How DRAM has adapted to new applications
  • Leading DRAM solutions for AI and their benefits
