World's 'largest computer chip' for AI tasks revealed

A Californian-based start-up has unveiled what it says is the world's largest computer chip.

The Wafer Scale Engine, designed by Cerebras Systems, is slightly bigger than a standard iPad.

The firm says a single chip can drive complex artificial intelligence (AI) systems in everything from driverless cars to surveillance software.

However, one expert suggested that the innovation would prove impractical to install in many data centres.
