Title: Building the Future of AI, Together


Abstract: With the breakthrough of Generative AI, Artificial Intelligence has risen to the next level. Technology once thought impossible has now become a part of everyday life, and it’s poised to become an essential requirement for billions of lives around the world. The semiconductor industry is at the center of unlocking these capabilities and it’s imperative that it comes together to solve hard problems around rising complexities that threaten to derail momentum. Join Dipti as she discusses this exciting moment, and the role that this industry plays in bringing this essential technology to the world.

Kunle Olukotun

Co-Founder and Chief Technologist

SambaNova Systems

Kunle Olukotun is the Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University. Olukotun is a renowned pioneer in multi-core processor design and the leader of the Stanford Hydra chip multiprocessor (CMP) research project.

As co-founder of SambaNova Systems, Olukoton has developed an AI innovation company that empowers organizations to rapidly deploy best-in-class AI solutions in days to unlock new revenue and boost operational efficiency. Prior to SambaNova Systems, Olukotun founded Afara Websystems to develop high throughput, low-power multi-core processors for server systems. The Afara multi-core processor, called Niagara, was acquired by Sun Microsystems and now powers Oracle’s SPARC-based servers.

Olukotun is the Director of the Pervasive Parallel Lab and a member of the Data Analytics for What’s Next (DAWN) Lab, developing infrastructure for usable machine learning. Olukotun is an ACM Fellow and IEEE Fellow for contributions to multiprocessors on a chip and multi-threaded processor design. Olukotun recently won the prestigious IEEE Computer Society’s Harry H. Goode Memorial Award and was also elected to the National Academy of Engineering—one of the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

Kunle received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from The University of Michigan

Title: Challenges for Future AI Memory Systems

Abstract: AI has become increasingly data-centric, and memory is a critical enabler for achieving high performance. AI systems, as well as servers and mobile devices, all need higher memory bandwidths and capacities to meet the needs of future applications. But several other factors are emerging that are driving evolution in memory systems and putting new constraints on future memory systems for AI. In this talk, I’ll describe some of the key challenges facing future memory systems and approaches to addressing them.
