Lightmatter says the computing and power demands of complex neural networks need new technologies like these to keep up. As demand for artificial intelligence grows, so does hunger for the computer power needed to keep AI running. Lightmatter, a startup born at MIT, is betting that AI’s voracious hunger will spawn demand for a fundamentally different kind of computer chip—one that uses light to perform key calculations. “Either we invent new kinds of computers to continue,” says Lightmatter CEO Nick Harris, “or AI slows down.”
