Today at OpenPOWER Summit 2020, OpenPOWER Foundation announced two key technologies contributed by IBM to the open source community.

  • A2O POWER processor core, an out-of-order follow-up to the A2I core, and associated FPGA environment
  • Open Cognitive Environment (Open-CE), based on IBM’s PowerAI to enable improved consumability of AI and deep learning frameworks

The contributions follow the open sourcing of the POWER ISA and associated reference designs in August 2019 and the A2I POWER processor core in June 2020. They represent IBM’s continued commitment to fostering innovation around the POWER architecture from the OpenPOWER ecosystem.
