The last two years have delivered a new wave of deep learning architectures designed specifically for tackling both training and inference sides of neural networks. We have covered many of them extensively, but only a few have seen major investment or acquisition—the most notable of which was Nervana Systems over a year ago.
Among the string of neural network chip startups, Graphcore stood out with its manycore approach to handling both training and inference on the same manycore chip. We described the hardware architecture in detail back in March and while its over $30 million in funding from a …Read more
