I am Co-Founder and CEO of Stochastic and a AI systems researcher at Harvard University. After spending a decade in academia, I co-founded Stochastic to enable easy access to building our own AI models. Building AI systems that are pushing the boundaries of computing is what I’m primarily interested in. In the world of AI, you can no longer just build each layers separately and hope that it’ll be great. The choice of a specific algorithm can affect the performance of the system if the hardware or the compiler doesn’t support it well. Building systems through not only optimizes within each layer but also across layers to achieve orders of magnitude increase in performance is not only preferred but is essential.
