Facebook Spreads the Chips Around 💫

It appears that Facebook is forgoing developing their own chips in favor of partnering with multiple top chip makers to add in their Glow machine learning accelerator. 🏎

It’ll be interesting to compare this approach to the other tech players looking to make their own. But this play makes sense. It follows Big Blue’s approach with prior software, doesn’t split their focus, and they also don’t have public-facing hardware offerings like Google (cloud) or Apple (duh). ⚖️

Also, Facebook showed off a new AI tool that uncovers bugs in code. That could be pretty nifty. 🐞
