With the advent of ChatGPT and generative AI models, the demand for deep learning inference in data centers is exploding. While energy efficiency is important to reduce TCO (total cost of ownership), high performance is also essential to serve large models in production. Hyperscalers, on the other hand, emphasized the importance of programmability and flexibility for inference accelerators to track DNN progress.This talk will introduce the high performance AI chips developed by FuriosaAI, designed to tackle all these challenges.
