Featured Keynote Speakers
I am a mathematician and artificial intelligence researcher at Booz Allen Hamilton and EleutherAI who specializes in natural language processing, ML interpretability, and AI ethics.
Over the past several years my work has focused on making cutting edge AI technologies more widely accessible through supporting the release of several of the world’s most powerful generative models such as GPT-NeoX, BLOOM, VQGAN-CLIP, and OpenFold.
Recently my focus has shifted towards building better understandings of how and why these models work, and what decisions engineers can make to instill desirable behaviors and limit undesirable behaviors in these types of models. I am especially excited about mechanistic interpretability research and work investigating learning dynamics of large language models.
Eric joined Google in 2011 and leads the company’s compute infrastructure design, including Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes and Anthos. A recent focus is security for open-source software, including supply chain risks and helping start the OpenSSF.
As a researcher, he has led projects on scalable servers, network infrastructure, IoT, and the CAP Theorem. He has also led work on technology for developing regions, with projects in India, the Philippines, and Kenya among others, and including communications, power, and health care.
