Next-Generation AI Chips For Android And Windows


Intel says that it will make the next-generation Intel AI chips available for both Android and Windows platforms. The goal is to bring all of its computing power under one roof. So that programmers have a single system to build applications and software for.

Intel will develop the AI software for its first Android chip, called “Knights Corner,” which is currently a consumer-ready product. This chip is likely to be in devices that are smartphones, tablets, and set-top boxes. Something that could be priced reasonably.

Apple AI Chips

Apple is rumored to be working on a new kind of chip, called AI chips. But Intel says it will only bring its Knight’s Corner product to the Android platform. While the chips will be compatible with iPhones and iPads, users won’t be able to buy the same kind of device as Intel does for other mobile devices. (Though Intel did say that it is still in talks with manufacturers about doing other chip deals.)

With Knights Corner, Intel is taking the complexity out of computer processors, freeing up development teams to concentrate on creating advanced software for the real world,” Intel explained in a statement.

There’s already speculation that Microsoft will allow Windows 8 devices to run Android software. A similar situation took place when Microsoft allowed Apple to create ARM processors for its iPhone and iPad devices.

Google, in turn, will use Android to promote its own products. But it will also use the chips for Android-based devices that are running Google’s Chrome browser. There are currently rumors that Google is planning to launch a new platform designed to compete with Apple’s iOS.

Apple and Intel are both large companies, and they have their own agendas. There’s no guarantee that one company will come out on top, and it seems that they’re coming at this opportunity at a bit of a disadvantage.

Apple And Intel

The two companies don’t seem to be in agreement about what computer chips will ultimately do. Google believes that computers should be able to perform most or all of the tasks that humans can perform. Hence, Intel thinks that they should be able to do only the tasks that computers are capable of doing.

Apple may have been the first to popularize the use of Intel chips in desktop PCs. But the high-end mobile computing market has been slowly moving away from them as well.

Since the two companies have different goals, it’s unclear if they’ll come up with any sort of solution that works for everyone. If Apple is going to embrace the Google trend and start providing a full range of mobile devices that are fully or partially made up of software from Google. Then it will have to allow for some sort of software from Intel to be sold for iPhones and iPads.

Artificial Intelligence

Of course, Apple could also do everything that it needs to do in order to produce the best possible computers and hardware for the task of creating artificial intelligence. It just seems that there are two completely different visions of the future, and there’s really no clear winner.

The move from Apple to Intel is likely to have a significant impact on people who rely on their cell phones for internet access, and the laptops they use to browse the web. It also represents a loss for IBM, which has built its reputation on supporting the development of computers and hardware that had originally been developed by major corporations.
