Intel Intros Neural Network Processors

Intel takes on the likes of Nvidia with the presentation of the Nervana Neural Network Processor (NNP), a range of chips designed for artificial intelligence applications.

Previously codenamed "Lake Crest," the NNP is based on technology from Nervana Systems, a deep learning hardware startup Chipzilla acquired for $350 million back in August 2017. Also helping is Facebook, who provided a number of technical insights. As presented at the Wall Street Journal's D.Live 2017 event, the NNP is a high-performance ASIC custom-designed and optimised for deep learning workloads, and looks to replace GPUs in machine learning and AI.

The NNP is a "neuromorphic" chip, meaning it is inspired by the structure of the human brain. Such a design allows it to make decisions based on patterns and association, as well as get smarter over time, making it ideal for cognitive tasks ranging from recognising images, interpreting cardiac rhythms, detecting security anomalies and even composing music.

Dell Invests in IoT

Dell sets sights on the Internet of Things (IoT) as it opens a division focusing on the technology, together with specific products, labs, partner programs and consumption models.

The Dell IoT Division is lead by VMware CTO Ray O'Farrell, and will tie together IoT developments from across the company. Over the next 3 years it will also receive a $1bn investment for the development of products, solutions, labs, partner programs and ecosystem. For instance, the company names "Project Nautilus" (a piece of Dell EMC software to handle the data streams from IoT gateways in real-time), "Project Fire" (a hyperconverged platform aimed at faster IoT rollouts with consistent infrastructure from edge to core to cloud) and "Project IRIS" (an RSA Labs development to extend security analytics capabilities to the IoT).
