Google Built Its Very Own Chips to Power Its AI Robots

Google has designed its own computer chip for driving deep neutral networks, an AI technology that is rapidly reinventing the way Internet services operate.This morning, at Google I/O, the centerpiece of the company’s year, CEO Sundar Pichai revealed that Google has designed an ASIC, or application-specific integrated circuit, that’s specific to deep neural nets. These are the networks of hardware and software that can learn specific tasks by analyzing vast amounts of data. Google uses these neural nets to identify objects and faces in photos, recognize the commands you speak into Android phones, or translate text from one language to another. This technology has even begin to transform the Google search engine. Big Brains Google’s called its chip the Tensor Processing Unit, or TPU, because it underpins TensorFlow, the software…
