All these days we have seen tech companies investing months or years in developing silicon wafers. But Google claims that it can create a computer chip within 6 hours by using Artificial Intelligence(AI) technology.
Technically, any human mind will take several months or years to invent a processing chip with excellent computing capabilities. Even if a company hires a bunch of human minds to do the same work in a small period, it will take at least 6-8 months to endorse a design.
Researchers from Google claim that their AI software helps their computing machines to analyze more than 10,000 chip plans to analyze and develop new and innovative hardware. It only took just 5 hours 48 minutes for the computer to design a floor plan for a processor that occupied less space, wires, and electric power than those crafted by Humans.
All this is being possible with the use of a Reinforcement Learning(RL) Algorithm that is faster and much better at processing complex AI tech.
What’s more interesting about this research is that Google has also started the implementation of the newly invented processor tech into its Cloud-based Tensor Processing Units that are used in AI Accelerator Applications that run on specifically designed Neural Network Machine Learning software.
Facebook says that the achievement made by Alphabet’s Inc subsidiary was remarkable and added that its scientists are also working on the same tech that will be used by quantum computers in coming years.
Note- Customarily, Tesla Chief Elon Musk and Bill Gates are not in favor of what is being developed by AI and tweeted that they need to be a control point for the use of technology as it can pose as the biggest potential threat to humans in the next decade or so- like stealing jobs, turning notorious and act killing machines that will wipe out the entire humankind within no time.
