Intel Seizes Opportunities in the AI Market
Intel is determined not to be left behind in the tech boom of Artificial Intelligence. In a blog post by CEO Brian Krzanich this week, the company announced that they would “ship the industry’s first silicon for neural network processing, the Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processor (NNP), before the end of this year.”
Intel acquired start-up Nervana in 2016, and together they have collaborated with Facebook to design the new AI chip. With the goal to develop new AI Technology for a range of industries like Health Care, Social Media, Automotive, and Weather, processing data and delivering higher performance are a few of the benefits. Boosting scalability while using that data for advances like cancer research, putting autonomous vehicles on the road, and predictive weather analysis like hurricane tracking is sure to put Intel at the top of the AI game.
“Intel’s research and forward-thinking teams have led to industry advancements throughout the history of our company,” Krzanich said. “We are well on our way to unlocking the potential of AI and paving a path to new forms of computing. It will be amazing to watch the industry transform as our latest research and compute breakthroughs continue to mature.”
