Highlights from the IEEE Hot Chips 34 Conference

Hot Chips, organised by the IEEE, is the geekiest semiconductor industry conference, heavy on engineering and light on marketing. Highlights were Tesla’s Dojo AI machine, Lightmatter’s optical interconnect between chiplets, NODAR’s stereo vision system directly from cameras, and the Cerebras wafer-scale AI engine with 850,000 cores and 2.6 trillion transistors.
