It is said that Amazon, which wants to boost Alexa’s performance, has developed its own artificial intelligence chip.
Alexa, who will have an independent gig, will be able to do voice recognition work without being infected with the cloud system.
No doubt Amazon Alexa is one of the leaders in the field of virtual assistants. There are some reports that the assistant, who cannot be said to be slow on devices like Echo, could be even faster thanks to the new artificial intelligence chipset.
According to the information provided by The Information, Amazon continues to build an unoccupied chip for Echo, Echo SHow, and other Alexa-powered speakers.
So these devices can perform voice recognition without having to first communicate with the cloud system in order to operate. Of course, this will increase the speed of the assistant.
The chip, which is likely to give faster responses for simple commands such as clock control, alarm tuning, does not completely remove the need for Alexa to communicate with the cloud system for more extensive processing.
This may be a big step for Alexa, but we can not say that the news is a surprise. Both Google and Apple already use artificial intelligence chips in their broad range of products and services. It was a matter of time for Amazon to buy the chip designer Annapurna Labs in 2015.
