Intel launches first Artificial Intelligence chip

Date: 26 August 2019 Tags: Fourth Industrial Revolution

Issue

 

Intel Corporation on has launched its latest processor, its first using artificial intelligence (AI), designed for large computing centres.

 

Background

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. These processes include learning (the acquisition of information and rules for using the information), reasoning (using rules to reach approximate or definite conclusions) and self-correction.

 

Details

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

  • New hardware chip will help Intel Xeon processors in large companies as the need for complicated computations in the AI field have increased.

Applications of AI

  • In agriculture new AI advancements show improvements in gaining yield and to increase the research and development of growing crops.

  • The Air Operations Division (AOD) uses AI for the rule based expert systems.

  • Use of complex AI systems to make trading decisions at speeds several orders of magnitudes greater than any humans. It  is capable of, often making millions of trades in a day without any human intervention.

  • Artificial neural networks are used as clinical decision support systems for medical diagnosis, such as in Concept Processing technology in EMR software.
