The amount of compute required to train complex AI models has grown by 300,000x since 2012. Compute gains have been a key component of AI progress and the industry is now preparing for the implications of systems far outside today’s capabilities. Toon will identify drivers of the huge appetite for more AI compute and describe how Graphcore’s IPU technology scales to meet this demand.

Admission to the keynote speeches is complimentary with event pre-registration by Wednesday, January 29, 2020. The keynotes will be held at the COEX Auditorium in Seoul.
