Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) has revealed its Tensor Processing Unit, named after TensorFlow, a software that allows the chip to undertake machine learning. The Tensor Processing Unit or TPU is an accelerator chip, according to Google’s Norm Jouppi. The TPU is able to put more processing speed towards processes that involve voice recognition, photo identification and analysis of big data. In addition to any task that requires the processor to learn through analysis and raw input. On Wednesday, Google debuts Cloud Machine Learning Platform to assist in developing pre-trained machine learning models.
