A Smarter AI Needs more Memory and Storage
This is the second article on Celesta Capital’s TechSurge Summit, which will take place on February 13, 2023. This article will discuss a panel on semiconductors and Vint Cerf’s comments about ethical technology use and how AI can be made more useful.
Jason DiLullo of Qatalyst Partners, the President of Qatalyst Partners, presided over a discussion at the TechSurge Summit about the semiconductor industry. Sanjay Mehrotra was the President and CEO at Micron. Rene Haas is the CEO of Arm. Ronnie Chatterji is White House CHIPS Act Coordinator.
Sanjay said a few things about the semiconductor industry, and specifically the semiconductor memory sector.
AI programs, such as Alpha Fold, which predicts the folding of proteins, are extremely helpful. He said that sharing information on what doesn’t work can be extremely helpful. We should also publish our mistakes and our successes. It’s also a great lesson for entrepreneurs. If something doesn’t work, find out about it as soon as you can and adjust your goals.
The biggest challenge in AI is getting the system to create a model of what it already knows. He gave an illustration. Computers have trouble understanding the real world. A two-year-old child can easily understand what a \”table\” is. John McCarthy, who was involved in early AI research, worked to gain this understanding by interacting with and working within the real world.
Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron spoke on the importance of memory for the semiconductor industry. Rene Haas, Ronnie Chatterji and Rene Haas discussed topics like the CHIPS Act, chiplets, and the IP Industry. Vint Cerf talked about an ethical internet and how to improve AI.
