Neuromorphic Computing Rethinks AI Chip Design

One of the classic movie scenes of all time is when Gene Wilder’s reluctant mad scientist, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Franken-STEEN!), realizes his incompetent henchman Igor got his hands on an abnormal brain (or, as the hunchback believed, it belonged to someone named Abby Normal). Hilarity ensued. However, that cinematic moment also reminds us that if […]

New Artificial Intelligence Chips Lean Toward the Edge

What a difference a year makes. Few companies had enjoyed the sort of bull run AI chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA ) had been on, returning more than +1200% between June 2015 and June 2018, eventually hitting a market cap of about $175 billion by September 2018. Then everything went south – literally – as the market […]

NVIDIA Stock Price Hits a 52-Week Low – Buy More?

For those of you fortunate enough not to be tainted by a career in finance, you may be surprised to hear how the sausage gets made. Let’s take a stock like NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA). There are analysts out there who are paid to “cover” NVIDIA by issuing recommendations as to whether or not you ought […]

A Race Between Lightmatter and Lightelligence

There’s a law that most technology people are familiar with called “Moore’s Law” which states that the number of transistors on a computer chip will double every 18 months or so. This refers to the exponential growth in computing which helps explain why that smartphone in your pocket contains exponentially more computing power than what was used to […]

Can Chinese AI Chip Makers Compete with Nvidia?

There is a new arms race, but we’re not talking thermonuclear war—unless we give machines the launch codes. Artificial intelligence is one of the key technologies that we cover, and it’s been a wild ride the last few years. Industries from healthcare to recruitment have embraced AI to gain efficiencies and a competitive edge. Heck, […]

Xilinx – Investing in FPGAs For AI Hardware

The year was 2012 and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) had just become the world’s most valuable company reaching a market cap of over 600 billion. If exactly 5 years ago you bought shares in Apple, you’d be up about +103% on your investment vs a NASDAQ return of +109%. If in fact you decided to invest in […]

12 AI Hardware Startups Building New AI Chips

In a recent article, we talked about how NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) seems to be dominating “artificial intelligence (AI) hardware” with their GPUs. The only other major provider of GPUs, AMD (NASDAQ:AMD), doesn’t seem to be all that interested in aggressively marketing to an AI audience. In that same article, we also talked about how Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) […]

Investing in GPUs for AI – AMD GPUs vs NVIDIA GPUs

It was only 6 months ago that we wrote about “The Artificial Intelligence Stock That Rocked Wall Street” and the title of that article was hardly exaggerating. What we were referring to was the +29% jump in the price of NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) after an earnings surprise which took the share price to $88 giving the Company a […]

The Artificial Intelligence Stock That Rocked Wall Street

While the biggest news of this past week was the surprise results of the U.S. presidential elections, we saw something happen on Friday that was actually even more remarkable. In fact, what happened this past Friday represented the dawn of an artificial intelligence (AI) computing era which is being led by an artificial intelligence stock that rocked […]

5 Startups Building Artificial Intelligence Chips

The first thing we asked when we were turned on to this niche was, what’s an artificial intelligence chip? It’s best to first think about what artificial intelligence software requires which is a great deal of processing speed, then a great deal of power in order to feed that processing speed. However, it’s not just speed […]
