The Speed of Iteration is the Speed of Innovation: How Groq is Accelerating Design Creation

In this week’s podcast, Groq CEO and Founder Jonathan Ross joins me to discuss Groq’s innovative deterministic single-core streaming architecture, why developer velocity is cornerstone to the Groq philosophy, how Groq was able to help accelerate COVID-19 drug discovery with their collaboration with Argonne National Labs, and why Jonathan believes that Star Trek the Next Generation is a leadership gold mine.

Let’s Read Our Little Cotton Socks Off (Part 3)!

I simply don’t know where the time goes. It seems like yonks since I wrote Part 1 and Part 2 of this soon to be famous (or forgotten) mega-mini-series. Speaking of yonks (which essentially means “a long time” but can also mean “a longer time than expected”) reminds me of the fact that we use three tenses in the English language: past, present, and future. For example: Bob ate my bacon sandwich (past), I am not happy (present), Bob will surely suffer for his transgression (future). … Read More → "Let’s Read Our Little Cotton Socks Off (Part 3)!"

Time of Flight Sensors, Trilobites, and Tunable Optics – What an Unlikely Combo!

STMicroelectronics has added a new member to its line of VL53 FlightSense TOF (time of flight) distance/ranging sensors, but this new sensor takes a radical departure from the previous generation by replacing a conventional lensing system with metalenses, developed in conjunction with a startup company called Metalenz and based on technology originally developed in a Harvard University metamaterial lab. According to Metalenz, this is the … Read More → "Time of Flight Sensors, Trilobites, and Tunable Optics – What an Unlikely Combo!"

Robot’s Gambit: Watch Out, the Robots are Coming for Us

This article is for all those people who think that Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics are real. They’re not, and the robots appear to be coming for us. Two seemingly unrelated articles caught my eye on the morning of July 25. The first article described the unfortunate death of a motorcyclist due to being rear-ended by a Tesla AV (autonomous vehicle) operating in Tesla’s … Read More → "Robot’s Gambit: Watch Out, the Robots are Coming for Us"
