  • The AI chips are: Edge TPU and Cloud IoT Edge.

About the Chips:

Edge TPU:

  • The new hardware chip is a purpose-built application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), designed to run AI at the edge.
  • It is so small that four such chips can fit on a US penny.
  • It will bring brain to devices at extremely low cost and high power efficiency without compromising performance.
  • It delivers high performance in small physical and power footprint, enabling deployment of high-accuracy AI at the edge.

Cloud IoT Edge:

  • It is a software stack that extends Google Cloud’s powerful AI capability to gateways and connected devices.
  • One of companies using this new technology is: LG CNS, a subsidiary of LG.

What is Artificial intelligence (AI)?

  • AI is a branch of computer science concerned with making computers that behave like humans.
  • In contrast to normal hardware and software, AI enables a machine to perceive (i.e. to think) and respond to its changing environment.

Question:
