IBM Brings 8-Bit AI Training to Hardware

At ISSCC, IBM Research presented a test chip which represents the hardware manifestation of its years of work on low-precision AI training and inference algorithms. The 7nm chip supports 16-bit and 8-bit training, as well as 4-bit and 2-bit inference (32-bit or 16-bit training and 8-bit inference are the industry standard today).
Reducing precision can slash the amount of compute
