Apple‘s ‘Neural Engine’ chipset for iPhones and iPads for future:
Apple‘s ‘Neural Engine’ chipset for iPhones and iPads. The chipset, internally known as Apple Neural Engine. For iPhones and iPads will be used to handle AI-related tasks like speech and facial recognition. Apple might be developing a new custom chipset for artificial intelligence (AI) processing. Reports Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. But will be used to handle AI-related tasks like speech and facial recognition. The chipset could be incorporated into Apple‘s ‘Neural Engine’ chipset for iPhones and iPads.
Gurman writes Apple’s current devices are equipped to handle. Artifical intelligence processes with two different chipset. The main processor or microprocessor, and the graphics chipset, or “GPU”. But the custom chipset would allow Apple. To offload some processing done by the main chipset and by the GPU. Apple‘s ‘Neural Engine’ chipset for iPhones and iPads allowing the company. To improve battery performance on its devices. The report goes on to say that Apple plans to integrate the chip into other devices. And has even tested prototypes of iPhones with the built-in chip.
(AI) for future growth:
That said, it makes sense for Apple as its competitors. But In the tech industry are increasing betting. On artificial intelligence (AI) for future growth. Google, for instance, has developed its own chipset for machine learning, called “TPUs”. The second-generation version of which was announced at this year’s I/O. Similarly, Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, Snapdragon 835. Has a dedicated module for an artificial intelligence (AI).
According to Apple analyst Gene Munster. ”Two of the areas that Apple is betting its future on require AI. At the core of augmented reality and self-driving cars is artificial intelligence”. Over the past few years, Apple has acquired a number of companies having expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Information about the chipset:
In 2016, Apple hired Russ Salakhutdinov. From Carnegie Mellon University as its director of AI research. Most recently, Apple released its first AI research paper. Which focused on machine vision technologies.
