Webinar: Introduction to tsunAImi – Accelerating AI Inference

Date: July 27, 2023
Time: 13:00 to 14:30 EDT
Duration: 1.5 hour


Join us for an insightful webinar as we delve into the world of accelerated AI inference with tsunAImi. Untether AI was established with a vision to revolutionize the field of machine learning computation. Traditional architectures often suffer from significant energy consumption due to data movement during AI workloads. Addressing this challenge, Untether AI offers cutting-edge, energy-efficient hardware solutions such as the runAI family of devices and the tsunAImi® family of PCIe cards. These devices and our imAIgine® software support a wide range of AI workloads and deliver exceptional performance.

The runAI family of devices operates at an impressive speed of up to 502 TeraOperations per second in its “sport” mode. Alternatively, it can be configured for optimal efficiency, providing 8 TOPs per watt in “eco” mode. The tsunAImi family of PCIe cards is capable of supporting up to 2 PetaOps of AI inference with an efficiency of 8 TOPs per watt.

This webinar will provide comprehensive coverage on two key areas: ML Framework and Custom Kernel Writing and Lowering. In the ML Framework segment, topics such as graph ingestion, calibration and quantization, adding custom layers or operations, and quantization-aware training will be explored. The Custom Kernel Writing and Lowering portion will focus on utilizing the imAIgine CLI for network compilation, creating custom kernels, leveraging Tile Flow for HPC and kernel testing, incorporating directives into the compiler, and integrating custom kernels into the compilation flow. Additionally, a live demonstration showcasing the capabilities of tsunAImi will be presented, along with guidance on accessing early adopter programs.
