AI hardware

Artificial Intelligence (AI) relates to computer hardware in multiple ways, as follows: AI platforms are being used to optimize the design and manufacturing of new compute hardware systems. Special computer hardware processor units, referred to as AI accelerators or Neural Processing Units (NPU) are being developed to enhance the performance of AI applications and machine ...

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have been traditionally used in computing systems for image processing (graphics cards). Their usage has largely been expanded to AI and ML tasks and are largely used for optimizing performance of neural networks.


Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) are electronic circuits which are optimized for AI operations and ML tasks. TPUs utilize the TensorFlow protocol logic to align with AI/ML task performance requirements.

Virtual machine

A virtual machine is a cloud-based or on-premises based virtual computer which runs under the control of a hypervisor host cluster. A hypervisor is computer software, firmware or hardware which is able to create and run virtual machines. There are two basic types of server virtualization, i.e. type 1 and type 2. Type 1 hypervisors ... Read more
