Dedicated AI-Card

A new company called AIseek announced what it describes as the world's first dedicated processor for artificial intelligence. Called the Intia Processor, the AI chip would work in conjunction with optimized titles to improve nonplayer character AI. Similar to the way in which physics accelerators can make a game's environment look much more realistic, Intia would make the NPCs act more true to life.

It's obviously not the first dedicated AI processor - but still a great idea. Will be a while until we can get these things for out computers, though: still seems to be in an very early stage.
