About Graphcore

Graphcore has created a new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for artificial intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence.

Job Description

Graphcore’s Intelligence Processing Units, or IPUs, are specifically designed for artificial intelligence applications. These are not like legacy processor architectures (e.g. GPUs, CPUs, etc.) but rather graph processors designed for the massive parallelism and sparse data structures characteristic of machine intelligence knowledge models.  Architecturally, IPUs are a unique new approach and offer significant performance, latency, and power efficiency advantages that distinguish them from legacy processors. Graphcore offers support for popular machine learning frameworks and a full tool suite for developers to innovate both within and outside those frameworks.

We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for artificial intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors whether you are a medical researcher, a roboticist or building autonomous cars.
