About the Google

Google is an American multinational technology company focusing on artificial intelligence, online advertising, search engine technology, cloud computing, computer software, quantum computing, e-commerce, and consumer electronics. It has been referred to as “the most powerful company in the world” and as one of the world’s most valuable brands due to its market dominance, data collection, and technological advantages in the field of artificial intelligence. Alongside Amazon, Apple Inc., Meta Platforms, and Microsoft, Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. is one of the five Big Tech companies.

Google was founded on September 4, 1998, by American computer scientists Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were PhD students at Stanford University in California. Together they own about 14% of its publicly listed shares and control 56% of its stockholder voting power through super-voting stock. The company went public via an initial public offering (IPO) in 2004. In 2015, Google was reorganized as a wholly owned subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. Google is Alphabet’s largest subsidiary and is a holding company for Alphabet’s internet properties and interests. Sundar Pichai was appointed CEO of Google on October 24, 2015, replacing Larry Page, who became the CEO of Alphabet. On December 3, 2019, Pichai also became the CEO of Alphabet.

The company has since rapidly grown to offer a multitude of products and services beyond Google Search, many of which hold dominant market positions. These products address a wide range of use cases, including email (Gmail), navigation (Waze & Maps), cloud computing (Cloud), web browsing (Chrome), video sharing (YouTube), productivity (Workspace), operating systems (Android), cloud storage (Drive), language translation (Translate), photo storage (Photos), video calling (Meet), smart home (Nest), smartphones (Pixel), wearable technology (Pixel Watch & Fitbit), music streaming (YouTube Music), video on demand (YouTube TV), artificial intelligence (Google Assistant), machine learning APIs (TensorFlow), AI chips (TPU), and more. Discontinued Google products include gaming (Stadia), Glass, Google+, Reader, Play Music, Nexus, Hangouts, and Inbox by Gmail

About the Google’s AI Model Runtime Hackathon

The Fast or Slow? Predict AI Model Runtime hackathon by Google is a competition for data scientists and machine learning engineers to build models that can predict the runtime of AI models. The goal of the hackathon is to train a machine learning model based on the runtime data provided to you in the training dataset and further predict the runtime of graphs and configurations in the test dataset. The hackathon is based on the compiler’s configurations that change the way the compiler compiles and optimizes the models, and hence make the models run faster or slower.

A bit of technical background on an AI compiler will help you get started! An AI model can be represented as a graph, where a node is a tensor operation (e.g. matrix multiplication, convolution, etc.), and an edge represents a tensor. A compilation configuration controls how the compiler transforms the graph for a specific optimization pass.

  • A layout configuration controls how tensors in the graph are laid out in the physical memory, by specifying the dimension order of each input and output of an operation node.
