Facebook Is Preparing To Build Its Own AI Chips
Apart from all the problems that have affected the social network giant Facebook, still the largest social network, of course, Facebook continues to grow and seek to innovate with new products and new solutions.
The latest project that the social network giant Facebook seems to want to begin with is the creation of chips. To do this the company now seeks specialized personnel.
Today, large companies seem to be betting on systems and hardware that will extend their services to new areas and new users. To do this, they seek to use the minimum to third parties, ensuring the greatest possible control of production.
Facebook’s latest job offer
The social network giant Facebook seems to want to get into this same area and so it seems to be looking for experts in creating chips for either SoC or ASIC.
It is still unclear to what end or at what height it will be used, but the ad that Facebook posted is clear on what it wants. The announcement says it is looking for experts in “end-to-end SoC/ASIC, firmware, and driver development organization”.
Where will Facebook use these chips?
The general opinion on this job offer is to focus on the need for Facebook to no longer depend on companies like Qualcomm, who have to buy all the processors and chips they use on the hardware that their companies, such as Oculus, sells and develops.
There is also the possibility that these chips will be used in the development of new products, associated with AI and virtual assistants, an area where many are investing very actively.
The social network giant Facebook is following the path that companies like the tech giant Apple and the tech giant Google have already followed in creating their chips and processors to integrate them into their products and thus have an obvious competitive advantage by not depending on third parties, while they are often direct competitors.
