Today we're joined by Kunle Olukotun, Professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Stanford University, and Chief Technologist at Sambanova Systems.
Kunle was an invited speaker at NeurIPS this year, presenting on "Designing Computer Systems for Software 2.0." In our conversation, we discuss various aspects of designing hardware systems for machine and deep learning, touching on multicore processor design, domain specific languages, and graph-based hardware. We cover the limitations of the current hardware such as GPUs, and peer a bit into the future as well. This was a fun one!
