As summer comes to an end, I’m pleased to share the latest news from Numenta. Some of you may recall from our last newsletter that Donna Dubinsky is currently helping the Biden administration with the CHIPS act. While she’s on temporary assignment, Subutai Ahmad has taken on the CEO role at Numenta. In this issue, I talk to Subutai, who gives a company update and an overview of our recent work. You’ll also find upcoming events, job openings and more…
A Zoom Conversation with Numenta CEO Subutai Ahmad
I recently spoke with our CEO, Subutai Ahmad about the latest developments at Numenta. In this Zoom conversation, we discussed our AI technology, how it’s helping companies get 10-100x performance improvements across broad use cases like natural language processing, how our neuroscience discoveries help shape it, and what excites Subutai the most when thinking about the next couple years.

Lawrence Spracklen and Subutai Ahmad to speak at Edge AI Summit – September 14
Our Director of ML Architecture Lawrence Spracklen will deliver a keynote presentation titled, “Deep learning at the edge: 100x inference improvement on edge devices.” He’ll discuss how Numenta is using various techniques that not only enable deep learning models to run on edge devices, but also outperform today’s standard models. When combined with other model compression techniques, we can unlock performance improvements of over 100X.
Additionally, Subutai will be a panelist in a discussion on Co-design and co-optimization: maximizing energy per joule. The panel will explore how to achieve full optimization through co-design and co-optimization of AI algorithms and the hardware platforms where they will be executed.
