Google TPU: AI coprocessor

Google is bringing custom tensor processing units to its public cloud | VentureBeat | Cloud | by Jordan Novet
"Google has begun to build its own custom application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) chip called tensor processing units (TPUs)
...The name is inspired by Google’s TensorFlow open source deep learning framework.
...These TPUs were used in the AlphaGo artificial intelligence (AI) powered Go player that beat top-ranked Go player
...It also works inside Google search and Google Street View. Now it sounds like they will become available for other companies to use, too."
