Intel Unveils Partnership with Facebook on AI Chip
At CES 2019 this week, Intel announced that it is currently working with Facebook to finish a new artificial intelligence chip in the second half of this year.
The new chip will be used for what researchers call inference, which is the process of taking an AI algorithm and putting it to use in various applications.
The partnership is said to be Intel’s response to competition from similar moves from Nvidia Corp and Amazon.com Inc’s Amazon Web Services unit. Nvidia already launched its own inference chip last September.
