Current computer chips are struggling to keep up with the demands of modern AI, as the algorithms become more complex and require more processing power. Companies have attempted to solve this issue with specialized AI chips, but they all rely on electricity as their power source. However, a team from Tsinghua University in China has found a breakthrough solution by building a chip that uses light instead of electricity for AI tasks .

Taichi is the first chip to successfully integrate two types of light-based processing for AI tasks.

The chip, named Taichi, combines two types of light-based processing and is able to generate content in addition to traditional tasks. Its brain-inspired architecture and use of multiple components called chiplets make it far more efficient than previous optical chips. In a challenging task of separating images over 1,000 categories, Taichi matched current chip performance with 92% accuracy while significantly slashing energy consumption .

The chip can generate content such as images and music in a style inspired by famous artists and composers.

This paves the way for large-scale photonic computing and represents a major advancement in the field of AI.

The use of extreme ultraviolet lithography is limited to only a few companies due to high costs and limited availability. China's chip companies have turned to deep ultraviolet lithography, but it comes with its own limitations. Metalenses, which are 10,000 times thinner than regular lenses, have shown potential in overcoming these limitations and have been successfully mass-produced for use in the ultraviolet region. This breakthrough has opened up new possibilities for computer chip production, making it more efficient and cost-effective than ever before.
