Episode #113: Dedicated AI chips and running old Python faster at Intel

Published Sat, May 27, 2017, recorded Sat, May 20, 2017.

Where do you run your Python code? No, not Python 3, Python 2, PyPy or the other implementations. I'm thinking waaaaay lower than that. This week we are talking about the actual chips that execute our code.

We catch up with David Stewart and meet Suresh Srinivas, and Sergey Maidanov from Intel. We talk about how they are working at the silicon level to make even Python 2 run faster and touch on dedicated AI chips that go beyond just what is possible with GPU-computation.
