Tachyum Touts Benefits of Universal Processor for Hyperscale Datacenters, HPC and AI Markets at HOT CHIPS 2018


Tachyum CEO Dr. Radoslav Danilak from Silicon Valley startup Tachyum
Inc. will discuss how its Prodigy Universal Processor Chip combines the
best attributes of CPU, GPU and TPU architectures to overcome
high-performance computing challenges at HOT CHIPS 2018: A Symposium on
High-Performance Chips at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in
Cupertino, Calif. August 21 at 3 p.m.

Tachyum CEO Dr. Radoslav Danilak will present "Tachyum Cloud Chips for
Hyperscale Workloads, Deep ML, General, Symbolic & Bio AI" at the
three-day event. He will present how, for the first time, humanity can
simulate human brain-sized neural networks in real time, which is
critical for the Human Brain Project, as well as how Tachyum's approach
is needed to help achieve such a system by 2020 instead of 2028.

"CPU is easy to program but is costly and power hungry," said Danilak.
"GPU is much faster but is very hard to program. TPU is faster yet but
also more limited in application than GPU. Prodigy outperforms all of
these to allow for the utilization of idle servers with significantly
lower power requirements needed to meet the massive processing
requirements of a project like simulating real-time human brain
capabilities. I look forward to sharing with attendees at HOT CHIPS how
a new approach is needed to overcome the challenges faced by all those
in the hyperscale datacenter, HPC and AI markets."

Tachyum has achieved unprecedented compute performance and power
efficiency for Data Center and AI applications to enable a new
generation of Supercomputers with the introduction of its Prodigy
Universal Processor Chip. Prodigy is the smallest and fastest general
purpose, 64-bit processor, requiring 10x less power and reducing server
cost by 3x. New proprietary software has made many parts of the hardware
found in a typical processor redundant. Shorter wires, due to a smaller
core, translates into much greater speed for the processor. The
ultra-low power Prodigy processor, will allow system integrators to
build a 32 Exaflops AI supercomputer.

Since it started in 1989, HOT CHIPS has been known as one of the
semiconductor industry's leading conferences on high-performance
microprocessors and related integrated circuits. Attracting more than
500 attendees from all over the world, HOT CHIPS provides an opportunity
for chip designers, computer architects, system engineers, press and
analysts, as well as attendees from national laboratories and academia,
to mix, mingle and see presentations on the latest technologies and
products. Additional information about the conference is available at
