Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for artificial intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current hardware, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general artificial intelligence.

Graphcore believes its IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for artificial intelligence compute. The performance, efficiency and flexibility of the IPU will be transformative across all industries and sectors whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist, building autonomous cars or making new scientific breakthroughs.
