Its new chip platform, unveiled in Taiwan, combines AI and high-performance computing.
The news: SiliconAngle reports that Nvidia, which makes super-fast GPU chips often used in gaming, has launched HGX-2, which combines 16 advanced GPUs to handle AI tasks in the cloud.
The need for speed: AI systems train on lots of data. The faster they can crunch numbers, the better. Nvidia says its new platform has hit record training speeds of 15,500 images a second.
Why this matters: Beefing up cloud computing power for AI will help accelerate advances in everything from policing online content to guiding self-driving cars.
