Google is building its own chip to power its AI bots

Perhaps Google thinks that the chips available in the market are unable to handle the needs of its machine learning algorithms because Google today announced at its I/O developer conference that the search giant has been building its own specialized chips to power the machine learning algorithms. Google has been using the Tensor Processing Units (TPU) custom-built chips to power its data centers according to Google’s senior VP for its technical infrastructure Urs Holzle. Now it wants TPU to power its machine learning algorithms. Google says it’s getting “an order of magnitude better-optimized performance per watt for machine learning” and argues that this is “roughly equivalent to fast-forwarding technology about seven years into the future.” Google said that it has managed to speed up the machine learning algorithms with the TPUs…
