  • Rebellions.ai — AI chip architects are often inattentive to advanced deep learning features and requirements because they believe software stacks between their silicon and algorithms can provide effective abstract layers. We disagree. We do not think such naively designed chips can efficiently utilize expensive custom silicon resources. The more native hardwaresupports are enabled, the higher performance is achieved.Rebellions Inc is building genuine AI accelerators by bi-directionally bridging the gap between underlying silicon architectures and deep learning algorithms. 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.
