Nvidia Aims to Be the Inference Engine for AI Applications

The chip maker rolled out two new Pascal GPUs designed to compete with Intel processors in the area of deep learning known as “inference.” Nvidia officials are looking to grab a larger share of the ever-expanding artificial intelligence space.At the company’s GPU Technology Conference in Beijing this week, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled two new GPUs that are specifically designed for part of the deep learning process called “inference,” an area where the work is usually processed on CPUs from Intel. The new GPUs—the Tesla P4 and P40 (pictured)—are part of a widening push by Nvidia in the artificial intelligence (AI) arena and the latest point of competition between the GPU maker and Intel in the emerging market.AI refers to the creation of systems that can collect input—such as voice…
