453: In this episode, Anima discusses the synergy of working in both academia and in the industry, from her previous positions at AWS and University of California, Irvine, to her current research at NVIDIA and Caltech. She shares how AI can accelerate scientific discovery with engineering capabilities, such as powerful GPUs, that continuously push AI forward at a very fast pace. We also discuss what is known as the Trinity of the deep-learning revolution: algorithms, data, and compute infrastructure. Anima shares insights on scaling, self-supervision techniques, embodied intelligence, and her thoughts on the future of AI. Finally, we end with a discussion of Anima’s mission of globally democratizing and diversifying AI.
