We push algorithm boundaries to better exploit silicon budgets, while re-architecting AI processors to incorporate sophisticated deep learning features through silicon-dedicated DL kernels.Our goal is to deliver a domain-specific AI processor along with its optimized software. This approach, together with our unique decentralized programming model, will enable customers to arm with the most powerful yet energy-efficient AI hardware as well as seamless integration.
