Intel introduces AI chip

Intel Corp on Tuesday unveiled its latest processor that will be its first using artificial intelligence (AI) and is designed for large computing centers.

The chip, developed at its development facility in Haifa, Israel, is known as Nervana NNP-I or Springhill and is based on a 10 nanometer Ice Lake processor that will allow it to cope with high workloads using minimal amounts of energy, Intel said.

Intel said its first AI product comes after it had invested in Israeli AI startups, including Habana Labs and NeuroBlade.

Intel General Manager Naveen Rao said the firm has to deal with huge amounts of data generated and make sure organizations are equipped with what they need to make effective use of the data and process them where they are collected to reach AI everywhere.
