Tech industry mentor Marian Gazdik joins Tachyum Board of Advisors

6 Sep 2018 San Jose - Marian Gazdik, the Director of Startup Grind Europe, an entrepreneurship community powered by Google for Entrepreneurs, has joined Tachyum's Board of Advisors to help guide Tachyum's success in transforming the landscape of intelligent data processing and big AI.

Marian Gazdik is a tech investor, board advisor and start-up mentor who oversees the operations of Startup Grind in Europe. Based in 120 countries, Startup Grind is the world's largest organisation for entrepreneurs, designed to educate, inspire and connect business leaders. Marian Gazdik is also a co-founding partner at IPM Growth, a venture capital investment arm of global asset manager IPM, that invests in world-class technology companies from, or with a strong link to, Central and Eastern Europe.

He advises fast growing technology companies on scaling and global partnerships. Previously Marian Gazdik has held various global marketing leadership positions at Orange, Reebok, and Werner & Mertz. In addition to Tachyum, Gazdik serves as an advisory board member at T-Mobile Czech Republic & Telekom Slovakia, as well as a start-up mentor at Virgin Startup. He was featured in New Europe 100, a list of outstanding leaders in world-class innovation from Central and Eastern Europe, organized by the Financial Times, Google, Respublica and Visegrad Strategy.

"Bringing human brain-scale AI to mainstream data centres without the need to buy dedicated AI processors will profoundly change humanity like never before", stated Marian Gazdik. "Tachyum is an exciting opportunity that will help the world to deal better with its computing challenges and make better use of Artificial Intelligence."

Tachyum is achieving unprecedented compute performance and power efficiency for data centre and AI applications with the introduction of its Prodigy Universal Processor Chip. Prodigy is the smallest and fastest general purpose, 64-bit processor, requiring 10x less power and reducing server cost by 3x. New proprietary software has made many blocks of hardware found in a typical processor redundant. Prodigy's shorter wires, due to a smaller core with less transistors, translates into much greater speed for the processor. The ultra-low power Prodigy processor will allow system integrators to build a 32 Exaflops AI supercomputer, beginning in the last half of 2020 to enable users to simulate, in real-time, human brain-sized neural networks beginning sooner rather than the previously projected 2028 timeframe.

"Marian is well-versed in how to achieve success and has the first-hand expertise to help us further our objectives as we continue in our pursuit to solve the complex problems in CPU, GPU and TPU architectures", stated Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Co-founder and CEO of Tachyum. "I look forward to working with Marian and seeking his advice as to what he believes is the best course of action to take in bringing Tachyum's Prodigy to global markets."
