A List of Chip/IP for Deep Learning


Machine Learning, especially Deep Learning technology is driving the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI). At the beginning, deep learning has primarily been a software play. Start from the year 2016, the need for more efficient hardware acceleration of AI/ML/DL was recognized in academia and industry. This year, we saw more and more players, including world's top semiconductor companies as well as a number of startups, even tech giants Google, have jumped into the race. I believe that it could be very interesting to look at them together. So, I build this list of AI/ML/DL ICs and IPs on Github and keep updating. If you have any suggestion or new information, please let me know. The companies and products in the list are organized into five categories as shown in the following table. Intel purchased Nervana Systems who was developing both a GPU/software approach in addition to their Nervana Engine ASIC. Intel is also planning in integrating into the Phi platform via a Knights Crest project.
