An artificial intelligence (AI) accelerator is computer hardware that specifically handles AI requirements. It speeds up processes such as artificial neural network (ANN) tasks, machine learning (ML), and machine vision.

Back in the 1980s, graphics accelerators made PCs faster and more efficient by freeing up the main processor and handling all the graphics requirements. Similarly, AI accelerators free up the main processor from having to deal with complex AI chores that can be resource-intensive.
