neural processing unit

Also called a "neuromorphic chip" and "intelligent processing unit" (IPU), a neural processing unit is designed to accelerate neural network processing. Such chips are expected to greatly accelerate the efficiency of artificial intelligence (AI) applications. In 2016, Qualcomm introduced its Zeroth Machine Intelligence Platform and Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine that enable mobile devices to run their own neural network models rather than going to the cloud. See TensorFlow, neural network and deep learning.
