Apple Is Working on a Dedicated Chip to Power AI on Devices ➝

Mark Gurman, reporting for Bloomberg:

Apple is working on a processor devoted specifically to AI-related tasks, according to a person familiar with the matter. The chip, known internally as the Apple Neural Engine, would improve the way the company’s devices handle tasks that would otherwise require human intelligence — such as facial recognition and speech recognition, said the person, who requested anonymity discussing a product that hasn’t been made public.

Looks like we might be seeing N-series chips in the not-too-distant future.
