AI based cpu design

As reported here a group of researchers have used AI modeling to re-invent a RISC-V chip from scratch with performance comparable to mid 90’s intel CPUs. One interesting point here, is that this work seems to be part of the push by China to foster more domestic development work focused on the RISCV ecosystem, as it is effectivley immune to sanctions. Assuming that this trend continues, we could expect to see a large number of AI generated CPUs conforming to the RISCV isa in the near future.
