SAN JOSE, Calif., October 17, 2018 – Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Co-founder and CEO of Silicon Valley startup Tachyum Inc., is among the featured panelists presenting as part of the “Circling the Wagons – Memory/storage-centric computing” session at Storage Visions 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California, October 22 at 8:15 a.m. PDT.
A frequent presenter at technology trade shows around the world, Danilak has more than 25 years of industry experience and over 100 patents designing state-of-the-art processing systems. As part of the Storage Vision session, sponsored by Tachyum, Danilak will share how a new approach to intelligent data processing is needed to unlock unprecedented performance, power efficiency and cost advantages to solve the most complex problems in big data analytics, deep learning, mobile and large-scale computing.
“The growing requirements of the hyperscale data center, high-performance computing and AI applications requires a new approach that can provide unprecedented compute performance and power efficiencies,” said Danilak. “I look forward to sharing with attendees of Storage Visions how our Prodigy Universal Processor Chip combines the best attributes of CPU, GPU and TPU architectures to overcome these challenges to enable a new generation of Supercomputers.”
Tachyum’s 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. This will enable users to simulate, in real-time, human brain-sized Neural Networks beginning in 2020, instead of 2028.
Storage Visions is a two-day event packed with industry-leading keynotes, sessions and exhibits featuring the latest architectures in memory and storage technologies. Additional information about the conference is available on its website.
Named for the Greek “tachy,” meaning speed, combined with “-um,” indicating an element, Tachyum emerged from stealth mode in 2017 to engineer disruptive intelligent information processing products. Tachyum’s founders have a track record of solving problems caused by device physics to deliver transformational products to market, and are backed by IPM Growth, the Central & Eastern European venture capital platform, as Tachyum’s lead investor.
