1st cloud AI chip unveiled

The processors unveiled in Shanghai help improve cloud computing under complex scenarios and further boost users' experience.

Chinese chipmaker Cambricon Technologies released the country’s first cloud artificial intelligence chip yesterday in Shanghai.

The AI processor unicorn debuted two processors in Shanghai that support cloud computing and further improve users’ experience.

Cambricon 1M is designed for terminals and Cambricon MLU100 is meant for cloud computing.

The MLU100 processor can meet the vision, voice, natural language processing and demand for intelligent processing of cloud computing such as data mining and other fields which could involve large data volume, multi task, multi-mode, low latency and high throughput.

The cloud chip supports “deep learning” or neural networks that mimic human learning. Deep learning is machine learning involving algorithms that can analyze data, recognize patterns and make predictions.
