ThirdAI (pronunciation: /THərd ī/ Third eye) is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence startup creating scalable and sustainable AI.
ThirdAI builds hash-based processing algorithms that accelerate training and inference of neural networks. The technology is a result of 10 years of innovation in finding fundamental ways to make deep learning more efficient. Our research has demonstrated how we can make commodity x86 CPUs 15x faster than state of the art NVIDIA GPUs for training large neural networks. This demonstration has shaken the common knowledge prevailing in the AI community that specialized processors like GPUs are superior to CPUs for training neural networks.
Several media outlets acclaim our technologies’ power:
IEEE Spectrum describes, “What they report is stunning.”
Investorplace considers the algorithm one of the biggest threats to NVIDIA Stock (a $500 billion company).
Engadget calls it a “Completely different approach to Deep Learning”.
A quote from WCCFTech says, “If an implementation of this algorithm is mainstreamed it would almost instantly disrupt the dynamics of the deep learning ecosystem. Valuations of companies could change overnight.”
We seek not only to benefit current training workloads by shifting to lower-cost CPUs, but also to unlock previously infeasible training GPU workloads.
