At CES 2019 in Las Vegas this week, Navin Shenoy – Intel Data Center Group executive vice president, announced the Intel Nervana Neural Network Processor for Inference, which will go into production this year. Back in 2016, Intel acquired Nervana, a 48-person AI SAAS startup from San Diego, for (reportedly) something like $408 million. Nervana was a software company at the time, providing a full-stack software-as-a-service platform called Nervana Cloud, … Read More → "Intel Achieves AI Nervana"
We are all focusing a lot of attention on neural network inference these days. There is lengthy debate about the relative merits of GPUs, high-end FPGAs, and other specialized solutions for generating the most and best inferencing per coloumb. Most of that centers around data center or high-end edge designs. But the real volume for inferencing chips will clearly be in cost-, power-, and space-constrained edge … Read More → "Lattice Raises the Bar on Low Power AI"
