"Generally speaking, QuestCore is the most intelligent and cost-effective video analysis chip in the world," said Lu Hao, YITU's chief innovation officer, adding that it is 60 percent designed and manufactured in China.
YITU has taken the top place in face recognition tests held by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under the U.S. Department of Commerce for three consecutive years.
The AI server, developed by Shanghai-based YITU Technology, has computing power equivalent to eight NVIDIA P4 servers, with half the size and 20 percent of the energy consumption, slashing the construction cost by 60 percent and the operation and maintenance cost by 60 percent for data centers.
SHANGHAI, May 9 (Xinhua) -- During a demonstration on Thursday, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) server the size of a laptop used 60 cameras to complete a real-time intelligent video analysis task -- matching the faces of several hundred audiences members with their previously provided photos with a 60 percent match rate, all within a second.
YITU's groundbreaking chip "QuestCore," offers a visual analysis performance two to five times faster than the similar products available on the market with the same power consumption.
He said the SoC (System-on-Chip), the equivalent of a computer motherboard on a single chip, is conducive to improving China's IC industry and bringing down the cost of AI application and promotion for Chinese companies in fields such as security, healthcare, retail and AI city.
