New NYT on dedicated chips for AI apps
Interesting piece, although I could wish it had gone a bit deeper into the weeds (might have required a tech-savvier reporter).

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
