AI Hardware Summit: launches in Beijing, following sell out in USA

SAN FRANCISCO & BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#AIlt;/agt;–The AI
Hardware Asia Summit, June 4
th – 5th
in Beijing
is the second in a global series focusing on AI
accelerator technologies and the design and application of silicon and
systems for processing deep learning, neural networks and computer

Worldwide, there are over 100 different hardware accelerators in
development for processing machine learning workloads, in both server
and client computing environments. Estimates for global market
opportunity for AI chips vary between USD 43 billion and USD 91 billion
by 2025. In 2018, Intel Corporation claimed data center AI chip revenues
of over USD 1 billion, while AI chip start-ups collectively have raised
in excess of USD 2.5 billion in funding since 2017. Over thirty
companies developing AI processors are based in the APAC region

“Two overarching efforts are indispensable in this AI chip
development frenzy: objectively evaluating and comparing different chips
(benchmarking), and reliably projecting the growth paths of AI chips
(road mapping).”
White Paper on AI Chip Technologies: Tsing Hua
University & Beijing Innovation Center for Future Chips, December 2018.

The AI
Hardware Asia Summit
, aims to introduce the US and Chinese
markets to help build a clear roadmap of the global AI chip industry and
assess emerging technologies for processing machine learning in the data
center and at the Edge.
