Why AI Will End Intel's Processor Dominance

AI applications are fundamentally different from spreadsheets and word processors. The data structures are different. The I/O patterns are different. The math is, typically, 8 bit integer. The algorithms support massive parallelization. 

That's only what we've learned in the last 7 years, since the key advances in deep neural networks were published. AI is still young, and there will be much more to discover about how to apply it, and what the compute requirements are.

AI is already huge, but is usually hidden in services we consume from Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple. Recognizing faces in your photos. Speech recognition. Face ID. Map directions. Machine translation. All use forms of AI to perform their magic. READ MORE ON: ZDNET
