AI Systems Architecture: Processor Basics

In this article, we will introduce the most common choices of core processor architectures that are used in AI systems in three categories: Scalar, Vector, and Spatial. For each, we will give some generalizations about the performance characteristics and the types of algorithms that they are optimized for. In later articles, we will go into more depth about how they are implemented, and their ...performance on different types of AI workloads.
