Application: Techniques for artificial intelligence capabilities at a network switch (Patent ID: US20240080246A1)

The patent filed by Intel Corp. describes techniques for implementing artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities at a network switch. The device includes an interface for connecting to multiple links, an inference resource, and circuitry for loading a neural network to support AI services for network tenants. The device can receive AI service requests, input data payloads to the neural network, and forward results to requestors. The inference resource can be various types of processing units, and the neural network can be different architectures for specific AI tasks like natural language processing or autonomous driving.

The patent also covers scenarios where AI service requests cannot be fulfilled using the loaded neural network, in which case the requests are forwarded to a separate inference resource. The patent further details the types of AI services that can be supported, such as vehicle-to-vehicle communication, augmented reality, autonomous driving, video analytics, and language analysis. The device can function as a switch, and the second inference resource can be located remotely. The patent also includes instructions for machine-readable mediums and a method for implementing the described techniques, emphasizing the loading of neural networks to support AI services and the handling of AI service requests based on the capabilities of the neural network.
