Google DeepMind deployed its AI to produce faster and more efficient semiconductor chips, making the effort collaborative between AI and human engineers.

Researchers at Google DeepMind have discovered a more efficient and automated method of designing computer chips using artificial intelligence, which the lab’s parent company, Alphabet, said could improve its own specialized AI chip.

The focus on building faster, more-efficient chips comes as semiconductor heavyweights like Nvidia and AMD race to provide the computing power for businesses’ ever-growing demand for generative AI capabilities. But cloud-computing giants like Google and Amazon, too, have been designing their own AI chips, and betting that their homegrown hardware can be faster and less costly to run than the competition.
