Recent Patent in Hand, Singular Computing Sues Google over Backend Mathematical Processing

January 1, 2020

Inventor-controlled Singular Computing LLC has filed suit against Alphabet (Google) (1:19-cv-12551) in the District of Massachusetts over three patents broadly directed to a device for “processing with compact arithmetic” operations that allegedly make more efficient use of transistors. The plaintiff targets Google over the provision of hardware for accelerating artificial intelligence applications (its Cloud Tensor Processing Unit ASIC systems), targeting its alleged used of deep learning models to improve computational efficiency; this hardware purportedly powers “at least Google Translate, Photos, Search, Assistant, and Gmail”.
