Mubasher:Amazon.com Inc. is said to be creating an artificial intelligence (AI) chip with the aim of supporting its various hardware pieces, The Information website reported on Monday, citing an informed source as saying.
The new chip will support Amazon’s voice-enabled products to handle tasks more efficiently, the source told The Information, indicating that the AI chip will allow “more data processing to be handled on the device than in the cloud."
On the same note, Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc. are reportedly working on creating similar chips of their own.
Such moves may “hurt” traditional chip makers like Nvidia Corp, whose graphics processing units have proven useful for AI tasks, the report showed.
