Description

Developer of a new generation computer processor designed to accelerate machine intelligence learning. The company's processor emphasizes massively on parallel, low-precision floating-point computing and provides higher compute density than other solutions and the C++ programming framework provides a seamless interface to standard machine learning frameworks, with simple integration for existing applications written for Tensorflow, enabling researchers to explore machine intelligence across a much broader front than current solutions.
