You Want A.I. In Your Phone? Google will put mini-TPUs into upcoming cellphones

Nextbigfuture talked to an attendee of 2017 Google IO and he reported that Google will be putting mini versions of the second generation TPU (tensor processing unit) into all new google cellphones.

The TPU is optimized for artificial intelligence and deep learning. The new TPU has 180 teraflops of processing power.

Google envisions a “cybernetic friend” that listens in on your phone conversations, reads your e-mail, and tracks your every move, so it can tell you things you want to know even before you ask.

It was not revealed how powerful the mini versions would be but they would need to use less power and no cooling.

The server versions use about 80 watts of power and have cooling units that were very tall.
