When To Expect Domain-Specific AI Chips (title included in top of post similar to ref above)

The chip industry is moving toward domain-specific computation, while artificial intelligence (AI) is moving in the opposite direction, creating a gap that could force significant changes in how chips and systems are architected in the future.

Behind this split is the amount of time it takes to design hardware and software. In the 18 months since ChatGPT was launched on the world, there has been a flood of software startups exploring new architectures and technologies. That trend is likely to continue given the rate of change for tasks being mapped onto them. But it often takes longer than 18 months to produce a single customized chip.
