AI Chips, Anyone? On Surging Markets and Spectacular Exits

March 11, 2019: Nvidia buys Mellanox for $6.9b The deal is the second largest ever acquisition in the Israeli high tech industry

December 16, 2019: Intel Confirms $2 Billion Habana Labs Acquisition The deal marks Intel’s second-largest acquisition of an Israeli company

From How To Let Ordinary Investors Invest In Startups? OurCrowd Has The Answer:

“The arrival of autonomous cars is stuck in traffic,” says Medved. “But if you have a product that can be used in the near term you are going to be fine.” As an example, he mentions Hailo, a startup chipmaker OurCrowd has invested in.

Rethinking the traditional computer architecture, Hailo invented an AI processor enabling smart devices to perform sophisticated machine (deep) learning tasks with minimal power consumption, size, and cost. Hailo’s specialized processor fits into a multitude of smart machines and devices, including autonomous vehicles, smart cameras, smartphones, drones, AR/VR platforms, and wearables.

The market for deep learning chipsets is estimated to increase from $5.1 billion in 2018 to $72.6 billion in 2025. The edge computing market, the target market for the Hailo processor, is expected to represent more than three-quarters of the total market opportunity, according to research firm Tractica. “There are ton of applications where people need this today,” says Medved, “not only when there will be fully autonomous cars.”

99 Predictions About AI in 2020

“Q: How worried do you think we humans should be that machines will take our jobs?

A: It depends what role machine intelligence will play. Machine intelligence in some cases will be useful for solving problems, such as translation. But in other cases, such as in finance or medicine, it will replace people.”

This Q&A is taken from Tom Standage’s description of how he interviewed AI (language model GPT-2) for The Economist The World in 2020. As readers of this column’s annual roundup of AI predictions know, this year’s first installment of 120 AI predictions for 2020 featured my interview of Amazon AI in which Alexa performed slightly better than the previous year.

For the new list of 99 additional predictions, I repeated Standage’s question to Alexa, and got the response “Hmm, I’m not sure.” The following AI movers and shakers are a lot more confident in what the near future of machine intelligence will look like, from robotic process automation (RPA) to human intelligence augmentation (HIA) to natural language processing (NLP).
