Intel's Nervana platform seeks to provide processors and platforms for a wide range of AI applications such as smart factories, drones, fraud detection, and autonomous car technologies.

Diane Bryant, executive VP and GM of the Data Center Group at Intel, said that the new technology would produce "breakthrough performance and dramatic reductions in the time to train complex neural networks" and that it would deliver "a 100-fold increase in performance that will turbocharge the pace of innovation in the emerging deep learning space".
