About

The Future of AI Models and Infrastructure.

We're witnessing a transition in AI. Narrow systems able to execute specific tasks in a single domain are giving way to broad AI that learns more generally and can work across domains and problems. This shift is being bolstered by foundation models, which are trained on large, unlabeled datasets and fine-tuned for an array of applications. They are transforming how we compute at scale. But we need more innovation in hardware and infrastructure to power and deploy this next generation of AI models. Continuing to rely on conventional infrastructure and processors is simply not scalable — or sustainable. 

The 2022 AI Hardware Forum takes place on October 18 at the T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. 

This event is by invitation only. If interested in attending, please email the IBM Research AI Hardware Center: ibmaihw@us.ibm.com

Why attend

We will come together to discuss what's next in foundation models and the challenges in designing AI hardware to support complex and multi-modal workloads. There will be presentations from industry leaders, interactive demos by IBM experts, and a poster session showcasing research from leading universities.
