Duration : 03:34:03

Chris Lattner, an innovative engineer in modern computing who co-created a new full-stack AI infrastructure called Modular and a programming language called Mojo developed technologies that were designed to help researchers and people involved in machine learning. He recognized that the field required more accessible, usable, and understandable platforms for AI, and thus, Modular and Mojo were created. Mojo is a superset of Python that offers usability with the performance of C++. Mojo code has demonstrated over 30,000x speed up over Python. Mojo and Modular are designed to support all kinds of hardware, and one of its remarkable features is allowing for emojis to be used as file extensions. The need for efficient multitasking in AI computing is driving demand for both hardware and software innovations. Chris Lattner believes that universal platforms like Modular and Mojo will contribute to the enhancement of AI computing across various industries.
