Amazon has shifted some of its Alexa voice assistant's computing from the Intel chip to its own chip, according to media reports, November 13. Amazon used to use NVIDIA chips to handle this kind of computing, but now most will use its own "infrantia" computing chip to implement it. Amazon's chip, first released in 2018, is designed to speed up a large number of machine learning tasks, such as translating text into speech or recognition images. Amazon said the cost of moving to inficia chips as a result of some of its Alexa jobs was 30 percent lower.
