Jonathan Ross | Founder & CEO | Groq
11:30am PT | 1:30pm CT | 2:30pm ET
During this session with Jonathan Ross, CEO of Groq Inc, we discuss their growing startup story as a recently valued unicorn and what is necessary for his company to disrupt the semiconductor industry as an AI accelerator. Ross claims “startups are where impact happens,” and he would know, considering his past experiences at Google. As the field of legacy and emerging competitors try to find their way, Groq believes their radically simplified tensor streaming processor architecture for GroqChip™ will best deliver on various customer wants and needs. Despite impressive product claims about low latency, scalability, and predictability, Ross explains that their magic recipe is to have the highest talent density possible.
