ChatGPT will not replace me – yet

An EEJournal reader recently suggested, eagerly I might add, that ChatGPT can already replace me. This statement was made even before OpenAI announced ChatGPT 4o. It’s not something that particularly worries me, knowing how these chatbots are trained. You can try to dump the entire Internet into a chatbot training session, but that does not give the chatbot wisdom, nor will it transform the chatbot into … Read More → "ChatGPT will not replace me – yet"

Building A Semiconductor Fab? I Have Awesome News (Exclamation Mark)

I’ve been informed by the punctuation police that I am no longer allowed to employ exclamation marks in my column titles. That’s like asking me to write while hopping up and down on one leg with one arm tied behind my back, but I’ll try to be brave and soldier on. Suffice it to say that for anyone building a semiconductor fab who wants … Read More → "Building A Semiconductor Fab? I Have Awesome News (Exclamation Mark)"

Who Invented the Johnson Decade Counter (and Why)?

I love digital logic. I love solving digital logic conundrums. And I especially love discovering interesting and unusual ways of doing things while also learning more about the people who came up with these ideas in the first place. Take Gray codes, for example. These were named after Frank Gray, who was a physicist and researcher at Bell Labs.

The Gray code, or … Read More → "Who Invented the Johnson Decade Counter (and Why)?"

At Memory Compute: Advancements in AI Inference with Untether AI

In my podcast this week Bob Beachler from Untether and I explore Untether AI’s unique approach to AI inference acceleration. We also chat about their recent collaboration with Arm and the benefits this collaboration brings to autonomous vehicle applications, and where Bob sees the evolution of AI-driven devices headed in the future. Also this week, I investigate … Read More → "At Memory Compute: Advancements in AI Inference with Untether AI"

University Degrees in Generative AI Prompt Engineering (Mind Blown!)

I rarely publish press releases. To be honest, I rarely even read them. Every now and then, however, something piques my interest enough for me to slide my orbs over it. In this case, what I just read caused my ears to flap in excitement and made my eyebrows stand at attention.

Before I share this mindboggling news, let me set the scene a little. Isaac Asimov … Read More → "University Degrees in Generative AI Prompt Engineering (Mind Blown!)"
