    Need to work on the professionalism of their slides/presentations though. I don't know how you can be 'under privacy', and the performance should be 25X (faster), not up 25x (if up 25X, then the chart below should show total 26X, not 25X )

    I get the feeling "Neural Processing Unit" is going to be the new buzz word for marketeers.

    MARKETING: My voice call needs "neural processing" so it finishes what I wanted to say saving time. This is same to AVX512 on intel processors.........a feature that helps 0.1% of PC owners.
