“How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”

Though most people probably wouldn’t contemplate actually eating an elephant, the prospect of completing such a huge task would certainly be daunting for anybody. That’s why the approach of finishing the job one step at a time is an important consideration when faced with any Herculean task.

Here at Tachyum, we’ve been readying our Prodigy Universal Processor for quite some time. Our goal of getting it to market later this year is one that we have clearly stated, and we have been working diligently, step by step, to ensure that we accomplish this. The latest steps we have made towards production include the availability of our FPGA emulation prototype for Prodigy and the release of our motherboard emulation for Prodigy. Here’s what these important milestones mean and why they’re important…

Beyond the Buzz:

The Forgotten Costs of Powering AI/ML Workloads

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are trending topics across media, having captured the imaginations of companies and consumers alike with the promise of how these technologies will revolutionize industries and lifestyles in the near and distant future. As many the once-only-imagined projects, like autonomous vehicles, become reality, the coverage has been celebratory and optimistic about how they will benefit society.

But what is often underreported is the cost that such advancements impact on the world to achieve such results. The proliferation of internet-connected devices and the growing demand for compute-intensive applications require a massive expansion of data center capacity, which will require a massive increase in electricity consumption. Because such costs are absorbed by the huge tech companies leading these initiatives, the public has largely been unconcerned but the environmental impact of AI/ML workloads will be paid by all.
