Software & Computing

By some estimates, there are now more than 260 startups and established companies around the world scrambling to develop, qualify and bring to market chips and technologies for new ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) and autonomous driving applications. Accordingly, venture capitalists, technology companies, carmakers, Tier 1 automotive suppliers and others are sharply ratcheting up their investments in this area. Venture capital investments alone in automotive and other AI-based applications grew to some $1.6 billion last year, up from $1.3 billion in 2016 and $820 million in 2015, according to research firm CB Insights.

IBM's new chip is designed to do both high-precision learning and low-precision inference across the three main flavors of deep learning. The field of deep learning is still in flux, but some things have started to settle out. In particular, experts recognize that neural nets can get a lot of computation done with little energy if a chip approximates an answer using low-precision math. That’s especially useful in mobile and other power-constrained devices.
