Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processor: Architecture Update

Recently, we announced a new architecture built from the ground up for neural networks, known as the Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processor (NNP).  The goal of this new architecture is to provide the needed flexibility to support all deep learning primitives while making core hardware components as efficient as possible. We designed the NNP to free…

Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processors (NNP) Redefine AI Silicon

As our Intel CEO Brian Krzanich discussed earlier today at Wall Street Journal’s D.Live event, Intel will soon be shipping the world’s first family of processors designed from the ground up for artificial intelligence (AI): the Intel® Nervana™ Neural Network Processor family (formerly known as “Lake Crest”). This family of processors is over 3 years…

Comparing dense compute platforms for AI

In the world of artificial intelligence, there has been a lot of talk about performance and capabilities of hardware platforms.  It is true that today’s computing power is what allowed the AI revolution to (re)happen and this is a combination of 1) increased data set sizes, and 2) high-density compute.  In this blog, I’d like…

Nervana Engine delivers deep learning at ludicrous speed!

Nervana is currently developing the Nervana Engine, an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that is custom-designed and optimized for deep learning. Training a deep neural network involves many compute-intensive operations, including matrix multiplication of tensors and convolution. Graphics processing units (GPUs) are more well-suited to these operations than CPUs since GPUs were originally designed for video…
