Impacts of the AI Revolution

The AI revolution has developed exponentially over the past few years, with AI-powered assistants and search algorithms pushing forward our day to day activities. Artificial intelligence has permeated our lives, yet the high computation power needed to push forward developments is stalled by the bottleneck in VLSI. Chips capable of matching the high computing power is necessary to implementing AI, but the chip industry is no longer seeing doubled performance every year, making it impossible to implement massive machine learning models like ChatGPT efficiently on current hardware. Introducing new innovation to the VLSI industry and attracting funding for experimentation is necessary to spur the breakthroughs in hardware development to keep up with its software counterparts.

To address this challenge and take action for change, it is imperative to introduce new innovations and attract funding for experimentation in the VLSI industry. By leveraging cutting-edge research and development, we can spur breakthroughs in hardware development to bridge the gap between the computational requirements of AI and the capabilities of VLSI chips.

Through initiatives like “V Pay it Forward,” we can foster a supportive community that recognizes the challenges and opportunities presented by the AI revolution in VLSI. By bringing together researchers, professionals, and students, we can facilitate collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and mentorship, enabling collective action to shape the future of VLSI and unlock its potential in the AI era.

Together, let us take action for change in the VLSI industry. By recognizing the transformative power of the AI revolution, advocating for innovation and funding, and fostering collaboration, we can overcome the VLSI bottleneck and pave the way for a future where AI can reach its full potential.
