Intel chief Brian Krzanich said Tuesday his company is working on a super-fast chip designed specifically for artificial intelligence.The chipmaking giant is partnering with Facebook and other internet titans investing heavily in artificial intelligence to create the first in what will be a family of "Nervana Neural Network Processors" tailored to the needs of the emerging technology, Krzanich said during an on-stage interview at the WSJD Live conference."I think we are just at the beginning of a transformation," Krzanich said while discussing why Intel was betting on AI. "Artificial intelligence is going to be similar to what the internet was back in the 1990s."Cloud services have been a hotbed for AI innovation, so Intel has partnered with Facebook and other companies in that arena to build a chip tailored from the ground up to meet those needs, according to Krzanich.
