Apple plans to use the M2 Ultra chip in the cloud for artificial intelligence

Jakarta (MidLand) – Apple plans to start diving into generative artificial intelligence by moving complex queries to the M2 Ultra chip running in data centers before moving to the more advanced M4 chip.

Bloomberg reports that Apple plans to place the M2 Ultra on cloud servers to run more complex AI queries, while simple tasks are processed on the device.

The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Apple wants to create special chips to bring into data centers to ensure security and privacy in a project the publication calls Project ACDC, or Apple Chips in the Data Center.

However, the company is now confident that existing processors already have adequate security and privacy components. The chips will be distributed to Apple data centers and eventually to servers operated by third parties.

Apple operates its own servers in the United States and is working on a new center in Waukee, Iowa, first announced in 2017.

While Apple hasn’t moved as quickly as competitors like Google, Meta, and Microsoft in generative AI, the company has been researching the technology.

In December, Apple’s machine learning research team released MLX, a machine learning framework that can efficiently run AI models on Apple silicon.

The company has also published other research on AI models that provide clues to what AI might look like on its devices and how existing products, like Siri, could be improved.

Apple placed great emphasis on AI performance in the announcement of the new M4 chip, saying that its new neural engine is a very powerful chip for AI. This was broadcast by The Verge, Friday (10/5).
