SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GSI Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: GSIT), a leading provider of high-performance memory solutions for the networking, telecommunications and military markets, and developer of the Gemini® Associative Processing Unit (APU) for Artificial Intelligence, today announced its participation in the 29th Annual Single Event Effects (SEE) Symposium and the Military and Aerospace Programmable Logic Devices (MAPLD) Workshop, taking place virtually, October 6-8, 2020.
GSI Technology’s Paul Armijo, Director of Aerospace & Defense Business Sector, and George Williams, Director of Computing and Data Science, will lead the “AI Journeys to Space” tutorial on Tuesday, October 6 at 9:15 a.m. PT, kicking off the first-ever artificial intelligence (AI) technical sessions at the event. Armijo and Williams will discuss the disruptive change ready to occur at the intersection of space and AI with a focus on GSI’s Radiation Hardened and Radiation Tolerant SRAMs, as well as the Company’s Gemini APU.
“AI is everywhere – in our phones, in our homes, where we work, and where we play. The ‘new industrial revolution’ in AI and machine learning, fueled by massive amounts of data, has spread globally with alarming speed,” said Armijo. “However, AI has rarely left earth’s orbit, and it’s non-existent in deep spacecraft. The most recent Mars Rover runs on 15-year old CPU technology. Recently launched spacecraft lack the ability to navigate themselves, requiring constant communication with ground control. Meanwhile, back on earth, humans are already riding in self-driving vehicles, and routinely run billion-parameter neural networks at real-time speeds. Disruptive change is on its way, and AI is soon going where it hasn’t gone before.”
In addition to the tutorial, GSI will host a virtual booth during the SEE/MAPLD event. For the full details or to register, please visit the event website at https://www.seemapld.org. Virtual content will be available to all registrants until December 31, 2020.
