Bitmain claims to have built at least 70 percent of the computers on the Bitcoin network and now they want to leverage their technology to build AI chips and computers. Their new AI chip will be specialized in both training and executing deep learning algorithms. As a matter of fact they say it's architecture is similar to the one used by Google's Tensor Processing Unit. Could Bitmain end of being a big competitor to Intel and Nvidia in the AI market?

So Bitmain is applying its Bitcoin playbook to artificial intelligence. On 8 November, Bitmain’s other CEO Micree Zhan will detail its new AI chip, the Sophon BM1680, at AIWORLD in Beijing, and the company will begin selling systems based on it.
