A-List in AI Chipset Index: 2018 Excel Report - NVIDIA Leads the Way with Volta GPU / Knowm Challenges Current Chipset Architecture -


The "A-List
in AI Chipset Index, Excel Report"
report from Compass
Intelligence has been added to's

Companies have invested over $60 billion in AI through acquisitions and
startups over the last three years, in addition to their own research
and development. The strong interest in AI is also reflected in the over
1.7K AI startups. The AI chipset segment is one area where companies are
racing to improve chipset processing and power efficiency.

NVIDIA is leading the way with its Volta GPU architecture for data
centers, NVIDIA DRIVE PX for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS,
AI Chip for self-driving cars), Xavier system on a chip (SOC) used in
the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 platform and other innovations such as the DGX-1
AI Supercomputer.

Then there are startups like Knowm, which are challenging the current
chipset architecture where memory and processing are separated. Knowm's
architecture is similar to the human brain where memory and processing
are together.

This report includes a complete list of the companies included in the
research and their associated rank and summary scores. Also included are
qualitative research notes and analyst commentary, company specific
insights, leadership, and key happenings in AI. A full methodology and
list of the A-List in AI Watchlist is displayed in this report.
