Intel Corp. unveiled Tuesday its latest processor that will be the first to use artificial intelligence (AI) and is designed for large computing centers.
The chip, developed at its development site in Haifa, Israel, is called Nervana NNP-I or Springhill and is based on a 10-nanometer Ice Lake processor that will enable it to cope with high workloads while consuming a minimum energy, said Intel.
Facebook has already started using the product.
Intel said its first artificial intelligence product would come after investing in Israeli startups, including Habana Labs and NeuroBlade.
“In order to achieve a future AI situation around the world, we have to deal with huge amounts of data generated and ensure that organizations have what they need to effectively use the data and process it where it is collected, “said Naveen Rao, general manager of Intel’s Artificial Intelligence product group.
“These computers need acceleration for complex AI applications.”
The new hardware chip will help Intel Xeon processors in larger organizations as the need for complex computing in the artificial intelligence (AI) field increases.
