AI's rapid evolution is producing an explosion in new types of hardware accelerators for machine learning and deep learning. Some people refer to this as a "Cambrian explosion," which is an apt metaphor for the current period of fervent innovation. From that point onward, these creatures--ourselves included--fanned out to occupy, exploit, and thoroughly transform every ecological niche on the planet. The range of innovative AI hardware-accelerator architectures continues to expand. Although you may think that graphic processing units (GPUs) are the dominant AI hardware architecture, that is far from the truth.
