Facebook's AI chief researching new breed of semiconductor

Facebook Inc.’s chief AI researcher has suggested the company is working on a new class of semiconductor that would work very differently than most existing designs.

Yann LeCun said that future chips used for training deep learning algorithms, which underpin most of the recent progress in artificial intelligence, would need to be able to manipulate data without having to break it up into multiple batches. [Bloomberg]

The terms "semiconductor" and "chip" can not be used interchangeably. Thought I would mention it since this is a tech site.
