Today, the bit continent officially launches its third-generation AI chip in Fuzhou
This chip focuses on the artificial intelligence reasoning of cloud and edge application, which will be used as the infrastructure of the intelligent city system in Fuzhou, and it can be applied to many scenarios such as intelligent security, urban brain, face recognition and so on.
It is worth mentioning that, under the premise of power consumption of only 16 watts, the accuracy of FP32 can reach 2.2 TFlops and the power of INT8 can reach 17.6 Tops. Under the acceleration of Winograd convolution, the power of INT8 can be increased to 35.2 Tops, and high-definition decoding and encoding algorithms are integrated to achieve low power consumption, high performance and complete determination. System.
At present, BitContinent has mass-produced and released cloud BM168X series and terminal BM188X series AI chips.
BitContinental Chairman Jack Tuan said at the press conference that every city with a population of one million in China will generate a economy of hundreds of billions. However, a large amount of modern economy will inevitably produce high-density value data, and exploring these data needs powerful calculation support.
The urban brain is the inevitable product of the development of urban informatization to the advanced stage, the computing power center is the core component of the urban brain, and the cloud AI chip, as the infrastructure of the whole system, will provide the surging computing power for the urban brain.
At the same time, he stressed that,IC industry competition is fierce, follow the binary rule, Matthew effect, the first can live very well, the third is stumbling.
Previously, the IC industry, which had originally belonged to the niche market, became a household name under the interference of some political factors; in these years, China was very hard in the IC market under the very high threshold of funds, talents, standards and markets. Fortunately, Chinese enterprises have found the shortest path to the AI chip, which is also the vertical calculation needed for the current intelligent city, the smart community and the security monitoring system.
In the face of the huge potential market, in the course of struggling to catch up, the company believes that the IC enterprise should adhere to its own strategy and method, and find the accurate position in the industrial chain. In this area, the bit continent is always on the software chip and hardware manufacturers, and all the algorithm manufacturers will be potential partners.
Finally, the Jenks also revealed that after the launch of the third generation of AI chips today.In 2005, the fourth generation AI chip will be launched at the right time next year.
In fact, BitContinent's ambition to provide super-power for the urban brain came to light earlier.
On January 28, this year, the Chinese mainland signed a cooperation with Fuzhou
Lei Feng has always mentioned that,as a global
The continent's incoming city's brain, with the help of
Nowadays, BitContinent has launched AI chips and intelligent servers for intelligent analysis, and projects have also been launched for the construction of Ping'an City and Smart City in Fuzhou.
By strengthening investment in the field of smart city, strong brand benefits can be formed in a short time, which can better reflect the social value of an enterprise, and also meet the needs of the company to continuously expand its business boundaries.
In smart city, there are industry insiders analysis, the future Bit Continent is likely to become a strong competitor of Huawei AI chip, which can be analyzed from two aspects:
First, business revenue (with sufficient cash flow), China Semiconductor Corporation ranks first in revenue, Huawei Haisi, second in mainland China, Haisi's business focuses more on smart terminals and smart servers than mainland China.
The second is the technical team, which has deep technical strength and a better understanding of the direction of AI technology.
According to the tests of relevant technicians, the reason why Peter mainland was able to land quickly on the project is that its software architecture support ability is very strong, GPU algorithm migration is very convenient, and many project parties are willing to cooperate with it.
At the same time, we should also be aware that although BitContinent has landed projects in some places, it also faces problems such as limited application scenarios, insufficient project delivery experience, and lack of professionals in the vertical field.
In conclusion, the transformation will face the pain, the future can be but the process is hard, the investment income of the intelligent city business is much slower than the sales ore machine, which will test the patience and persistence of the bit continent.
