Biotech Special: ML at Recursion with Jordan Christensen and Imran Haque
Recursion is at the leading edge of applying AI and ML to drug development. The company exemplifies a new wave of “techbio” companies, that tightly couple compute and robotics with biology and chemistry. The task of decoding biology requires vast amounts of biological data and innovative strategies to make use of that data. It also
NVIDIA and the Future of 3D Development with Aaron Luk
Producing 3D films, games and simulations is a complex process, often involving multiple teams and tools. At Pixar, pipeline engineers needed to write lots of glue code to integrate different workflows and file formats, which was a big challenge, and led them to create the Universal Scene Description, or OpenUSD. OpenUSD implements abstract data models
SimpleWebAuthn with Matthew Miller

Biotech Special: a16z and the Biotech Revolution with Vijay Pande
There is a revolution unfolding in biotech. The confluence of new biological methods like CRISPR, virtually unlimited computational capacity, and machine learning has fundamentally transformed our ability to engineer biology for wide-ranging applications. Andreessen Horowitz, or a16z, is a venture capital firm that was founded by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz. Vijay Pande is a
Building a Unified Hardware API at Intel with James Reinders
oneAPI is an open standard for a unified API to be used across different computing accelerator architectures. This including GPUs, AI accelerators, and FPGAs. The goal of oneAPI is to eliminate the need for developers to maintain separate code bases, multiple programming languages, tools, and workflows for each architecture. James Reinders is an engineer at
