AI Edge Inference

IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, July 25, 2018:

"AI Edge Inference" has been getting significant attention lately, but what is it? This presentation discusses what neural networks are, what inference is, why the edge matters, and who Mythic is. In the end, attendees should understand the purpose of the space and how it affects computing.



Dave Fick is the CTO and co-founder of Mythic, an Austin-based startup that is creating the next generation of inference microchips. Mythic uses mixed-signal computing to achieve 20-100x improvements in neural network performance for edge devices, and has raised $55M from top-tier investors to execute on this vision. Dave Fick earned his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.
