Demand for AI compute is doubling every three months. Why? Taking full advantage of data means using more of it, leading to larger, increasingly complex models with billions of hyperparameters requiring massive clusters of compute nodes, all while meeting ever-stricter latency and power requirements. Alexis Crowell Helzer explains why the way we compute AI has to be completely rethought so it can evolve to enable the promise of global business transformation.
