Facebook wants to develop its own artificial intelligence chips that go beyond what’s currently on the market, according to a report from The Financial Times that’s based on an interview with Yann LeCun, Facebook’s chief AI scientist.

The idea is the chips will be able to provide the faster computing that Facebook needs in order to achieve new AI breakthroughs including digital assistants with common sense.

During the interview, LeCun reportedly indicated that Facebook is already developing its own custom ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) chips to support its AI software.

“Facebook has been known to build its hardware when required — build its own ASIC, for instance. If there’s any stone unturned, we’re going to work on it,” LeCun said.

While Facebook is interested in developing its own AI chips, it also hopes to work with existing chip companies, according to the report.

LeCun gave a keynote at the 2019 International Solid-State Circuits Conference on Monday where he presented a paper titled “Deep Learning Hardware: Past, Present, and Future.” In the paper, he writes that a new type of hardware is required to support AI. “This might require us to reinvent the way we do arithmetic in circuits,” LeCun wrote in a separate blog post.

Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Facebook wishes to establish its own expert system chips that surpass what’s presently on the marketplace, according to a report from The Financial Times that’s based upon an interview with Yann LeCun, Facebook’s chief AI researcher.

The concept is the chips will have the ability to supply the faster computing that Facebook requires in order to attain brand-new AI advancements consisting of digital assistants with good sense.

Throughout the interview, LeCun apparently suggested that Facebook is currently establishing its own customized ASIC ( application-specific incorporated circuit) chips to support its AI software application.

” Facebook has actually been understood to develop its hardware when needed– develop its own ASIC, for example. If there’s any stone unturned, we’re going to deal with it,” LeCun stated.

While Facebook has an interest in establishing its own AI chips, it likewise wants to deal with existing chip business, according to the report.

LeCun provided a keynote at the2019 International Solid-State Circuits Conference on Monday where he provided a paper entitled “Deep Knowing Hardware: Past, Present, and Future.” In the paper, he composes that a brand-new kind of hardware is needed to support AI. ” This may need us to transform the method we do math in circuits,” LeCun composed in a different blog site post.

Facebook did not right away react to an ask for remark.
