Chipmakers are battling it out for a claim in the high-flying AI chip market

At the core of artificial intelligence (AI) is machine learning—a computer’s ability to use data (and lots of it) to learn and continuously improve its decision-making based on complex algorithms. In order for data centers, robots, drones, autonomous vehicles, and devices like digital assistants and smart phones to process these massive quantities of data, they require a key component: semiconductor chips. The result: the robotics and AI revolution has sparked a new battle for leadership amo...
