What do the properties of neural tissue have to do with the way we process data in convolutional neural networks (CNNs)? Perhaps more than we think. This talk argues that, if anything, neural tissue teaches us that the hardware and software acceleration architectures we are currently building to support AI might not be the right ones and maybe the solution is right under our nose.
Program committee comment
This talk is more about ML rather than concurrent and distributed programming. However, we hope that you would be interested to hear what Nir, the well-known author of "Art of Multiprocessor Programming", is doing right now.
