Intel and the Coming AI Revolution

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Gadi Singer from Intel describes how the company is moving forward with Artificial Intelligence.

“We are deeply committed to unlocking the promise of AI: conducting research on neuromorphic computing, exploring new architectures and learning paradigms.”

Gadi Singer is Vice President at the Artificial Intelligence Products Group (AIPG) and General Manager of AIPG Architecture at Intel Corporation. Gadi has been driving Cognitive Computing programs across Intel groups and is responsible for developing multiple advanced compute engines. Gadi is currently overseeing the Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processor (NNP) architecture. Singer joined Intel in 1983, and has held a variety of senior technical and management positions in chip design, software engineering and CAD development. He was appointed vice president in 1999 and chief technical officer of Intel Communications Group in 2004. Before his current role at AIPG, he was vice president of the Platform Engineering Group and general manager of the integrated IP and technologies group architecture, responsible for the architecture of future IPs and leadership technologies for integration in Intel products and foundry including key subsystems such as CPU cores, graphics, imaging, security and audio, among others. Gadi also served as the general manager of the Intel Development Group z (IDGz) Architecture team. The IDGz Architecture Group was responsible for driving leading architecture (hardware and software), and capabilities across Intel’s Big Core products and SOCs. Prior to that Gadi served as general manager of the Software Enabling Group, responsible for driving leading architecture, practices, and capabilities across all IAG software development. Between 2011 and 2015, he held the position of general manager of Intel Israel Development Centers (IDC) and oversaw substantial growth in their scope and breadth. Among Singer’s prior roles, he was general manager of the Ultra Mobility Group, general manager of the Microprocessor Products Group’s Design Technology Division, co-general manager of the IA-64 Processor Division and general manager of Enterprise Processors Division. His technological contributions include the invention of the Schematics Formal Verification (SFV) method at Intel, which establishes mathematical equivalence between design logic schematics to substantially reduce schematics functional bugs. He was also co-inventor of Intel’s Hardware Description Language (iHDL). Before joining Intel, Singer was a software engineer at Elbit Electronics in Israel from 1981 to 1983. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Technion University, Israel, in 1983, and pursued graduate studies at Technion University from 1986 to 1988.
