The Artificial Intelligence Computing Stack

Posted on December 9th, 2017 by Reza

A gigantic shift in computing is about to dawn upon us, one that is as significant as only two other moments in computing history. First came the “desktop era” of computing, powered by central processing units (CPUs), followed by the “mobile era” of computing, powered by more power-efficient mobile processors. Now, there is a new computing stack that is moving all of software with it, fueled by artificial intelligence (AI) and chips specifically designed to accommodate its grueling computations.

The Hard Thing about Deep Learning

Posted on November 16th, 2016 by Reza

In this post, I explore the “hardness” in optimizing neural networks and see what the theory has to say. In a nutshell: the deeper the network becomes, the harder the optimization problem becomes.
