Intel has unveiled new cloud-to-edge technologies and services at the inaugural Intel Vision 2022 event, which include the Habana Gaudi2 AI processor, Project Apollo, Project Endgame, and Intel On Demand among others.
The American chipmaker said that the advancements it is making across silicon, software, and services showcase how it combines technologies and the ecosystem for unlocking business value for customers today as well as in the future.
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said: “We are in the most dynamic global market of our lifetime. The challenges organisations face today are complex and interconnected, and success depends on their ability to quickly adopt and maximize leading-edge technologies and infrastructure.
“Today, we are excited to share how we are applying our scale, resources and the magic of silicon, software and services to help customers and partners accelerate digital transformations in this complex environment.”
Along with Habana Gaudi2, Intel has also launched the Greco AI accelerator.
According to the company, the two technologies are built on a single software stack called Synapse AI. The software stack is said to easily support various architectures to let end-users benefit from the performance and efficiency of processors.
Intel claimed that the Gaudi2 processor provides two times better artificial intelligence (AI) training performance compared with the presently available A100-based offerings for key vision and natural language processing (NLP) workloads.
The company has partnered with Accenture to launch Project Apollo, which aims to give 30 open-source AI solutions kits to enterprises in the near future.
The kits are said to be designed optimally so that AI is more accessible to customers in on-premises, cloud, and edge environments.
At the Intel Vision 2022 event, the company gave a first concept demonstration of Project Endgame, a software infrastructure initiative, which is currently in development.
Intel said that applications can leverage the new software infrastructure layer that lets devices harness computing resources from other devices found within the network. This will result in an always-available, low latency, continual compute service, said the chipmaker.
The company introduced the Intel On Demand service offering, which is designed to help enterprises meet the requirements of evolving workloads, product sustainability and opportunities for scaling systems near the data.
The new service is currently being offered via HPE GreenLake, PhoenixNAP’s Bare Metal Cloud, and Lenovo TruScale, said Intel.
Last month, Intel reported net revenue of $18.35bn for the first quarter of 2022, a decrease of 7% year-over-year.
