Today we’re talking to Edward Kmett, the Head of Software Engineering at Groq. And we discuss how Edward came to be one of the most prominent members of the Haskell community. How Groq’s chips are able to provide incredible processing capabilities for AI models, and how Category Theory gives us a different way to think about mathematics.
All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About Edward Kmett:
I work at Groq with an eye towards building a better future. I also strongly believe in effective altruism and serve on the boards of the Topos Institute and the Haskell Foundation.
I spent most of my adult life trying to build reusable code in imperative languages before realizing I was building castles in sand. I converted to Haskell in 2006 while searching for better building materials. I served as the founding chair the Haskell core libraries committee and collaborate with hundreds of other developers on over three hundred projects on github.
I am obsessed with building better tools so that in seven years I won’t be stuck solving the same problems with fundamentally the same tools I used seven years ago.
Groq designs radically simple elegant processor architecture technology to accelerate complex workloads in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and high-performance computing.
