The saying goes that if you want something done right, you should do it yourself. For Nir Shavit, that idea played out in his life’s work. Nir has spent decades in the science and technology fields, but there was an area he thought needed to be explored that wasn’t being looked into — at least not the way he thought it should be. Nir co-founded Neural Magic to explore the world of neural networks and mapping technology, but in a way that hadn’t been done before. On this episode of Future of Tech, Nir explains how they are enabling neural networks to run on commodity CPUs – at GPU speeds, what the current state of neural mapping looks like, and why machine learning could unlock the answers to some of the biggest challenges we face today.
