CEO: Rodrigo Liang
AI chip startup SambaNova System’s integrated hardware and software offering stands out because of its reconfigurable data flow architecture. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup said this architecture allows applications to take the lead in driving how hardware is optimized to accelerate performance in data centers and at the edge.
In February, the startup said that it had raised a $250 million Series C funding round from Intel Capital, BlackRock and other investors to accelerate its software capabilities. SambaNova System’s co-founder and CEO, Rodrigo Liang, previously served as senior vice president at Oracle, responsible for SPARC processors, microprocessors and ASIC development.
