Microsoft Just Stepped Into The Future Of AI By Designing New Chip For it

Technology is evolving every day and tech giants are working day and night to give the world something innovative. Tech companies believe that AI is the next big thing that will entirely change the people's lives and will affect everything profoundly. All the big fishes in the tech world are busy with crafting virtual and augmented reality devices like VR headsets and goggles to serve great experience.

From learning how to tackle a car engine issue to exploring new places these devices will invade in every field. But, the only challenge the makers are facing is operating the flow of continuous large amount of data that slow down the device, drains too much batter and finally disrupts the user experience.

Microsoft just reveals that they were working on this problem for its HoloLens goggles so long and finally cracked through it. The company designed a chip that will analyze the data what the user hears and see within the device rather than commuting it to the cloud and wasting precious microseconds. The new version of the HoloLens on which the company is working, the HoloLens processing unit will get the inbuilt chip for self-analyzing, Microsoft reveals on Monday in Honolulu. The company didn't provide any specific date as the chip is still under development.

The company has invaded in the chip making as it believes that AI full potential can be explored only by integrating the central processing unit within the device. Microsoft also mentioned the chip is the first of its kind going to be integrated into a mobile device.

Other tech giants are also working on the next generation AI projects. Google is busy in crafting the AI gadgets that will explore the tech markets in futures, including VR gadgets self-driven car alongside Apple, is currently testing iPhone prototype containing a chip built to process AI.

Microsoft has invested much time and hard work in resolving this issue as it's the major hold back in the AI gadgets. No one wants to experience the lag or hiccups while experiencing the virtual reality. According to the researchers, you can send all the data to the cloud from the AI device, consider a situation where a car is driving and going to hit a person there is not much time for sending the data back to the cloud to make decisions. There is a lot of data to analyze from the moving car which is not possible analyze and act in such short period of time. By 2025 all the devices around us will have AI in built in it.

Intel was leading in the chip making for years as most of the devices have Intel manufactured chip in it. But, the increasing advancement in the Artificial Intelligence has given an opportunity to others challenge the chip maker. Neural networks are one of those that cloning the human brain by learning the pattern and the way it works to integrate it with computers for the creation of AI. Microsoft has been working on the chips over years now, which can be seen by its performance in the show of the strength last year. Where Microsoft translated all the English Wikipedia into Spanish with the help of thousands of chips at once, it translated 3 billion words across 5 million articles in less than a tenth of a second.

Microsoft is working so hard over the HoloLens as started designing the chips by itself, which is a good thing as technology is changing every day so it's better to take control of all the things.

According to the Microsoft, the HoloLens chips will give a new redefine the  AI and multiply the user experience ten times.
