The AMD EPYC CPU without heat sink, showing the individual chiplets.

Just a few years ago, no CPU had 64 cores. Having 6 cores and 12 threads was amazing. There was the Xeon Phi though. Way back in 2006 Intel started it's Larrabee project, eventually releasing the Intel Many Integrated Core prototype in 2010. According to Wikipedia, this processor had 32 cores and supported 4 threads … Continue reading AMD EPYC Rome CPUs – 64 cores, wow

When do you think we will have fully functional robotic cats with the same brain power as a real felines?

Recently there's been several neuromorphic chips or other AI chips that have been released. So, how long before the no. of neurons on a single chip equals that within the human brain? Yes, I realize that our current artificial neurons are not as advanced as our biological ones, but I'll use this as an approximation … Continue reading Artificial General Intelligence – in my lifetime or not?
