In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Dr. Naveen Rao, VP and GM for Intel Machine Learning Solutions, joins us live from Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. Dr. Rao recently joined Intel following the acquisition of Nervana Systems, which Dr. Rao cofounded. Dr. Rao seeks to understand biological computation in order to build smarter, more intuitive devices that interact with us in more natural ways. In this podcast, Dr. Rao discusses his and Nervana’s early history, accelerating deep learning workloads with technologies like the Nervana Engine custom processor, and how Intel’s acquisition of Nervana will allow Dr. Rao’s team to think in completely different ways.
