Intel introduces new AI chip system to power autonomous vehicles
New chip is a 64-chip computer capable of simulating 8-million neurons in total
Intel has unveiled a new artificial intelligence (AI) chip called “Pohoiki Beach” for research community to scale up neural-inspired algorithms, the company said in a press release on 15 July. The new chip is a 64-chip computer capable of simulating 8-million neurons in total. According to Intel, new chip will enable researchers to experiment with its brain-inspired research chip Loihi which enables users to process information up to 1000 times faster and 10,000 times more efficiently than CPUs for specialized applications like sparse coding, graph search and constraint-satisfaction problems.
