Google focuses on building an AI-first world with its new Cloud TPUs

Artificial Intelligence is continuously leading the way among the span of technologies in bringing out new software designs and capabilities. Google’s new AI chip is the latest one to get added to this. At company’s annual developer conference held recently, CEO Sundar Pichai announced a new AI chip that can be a technological break-through in the world of machine learning and automation. With this, Google signaled the increasing role of AI in software and hardware development. The chips known as Cloud Tensor Processing unit (TPU) are designed to speed-up the machine learning operations and are also an upgrade from the first generation of chips Google announced at its last year’s I/O meet. The second-generation chips can deliver nearly 180 teraflops of performance which is much higher as c...
