While your phones are not full of AI specific hardware (though they have a little of that), there are places where this specialized equipment is poised to make a considerable impact: cloud and data centers.

Google is one of many that want to leverage hardware to make AI calculations faster. This makes sense if you compare the price of services to the cost of the device. As the price of the equipment drops, the amount of profit that services will make starts to warrant the design of custom hardware. Here, each small improvement in power or speed will translate directly into money saved and earned. It’s no wonder the likes of Facebook and Google are spending so much effort in this arena. Facebook even wants the open source community to help out in its efforts.
