Intel and Qualcomm dominate the processor market, but some companies continue to try to compete with them.

Following Apple, the company Facebook is putting together a team to work on its own processors. According to Bloomberg, Facebook is hiring specialists to work on processors to reduce its dependence on Intel and Qualcomm.

The processors can be used for servers in the company's data centers, but there are rumors that Facebook will use their processors in other smart devices. The new processors can also run the artificial intelligence systems. This area Facebook is definitely not a beginner.

There is also information about a smart column from Facebook called 'Portal'. The company will not use its processors for the column yet, since the team is still going, but in the future it is quite possible.

'Facebook is working on his smart column. Future generations of speakers may also use the company's own processors. Using its processors, the company will be able to fully control production as well as better coordinate systems support with technology. '

It doesn't look like anyone can take the lead from Intel and Qualcomm anytime soon, but if more companies follow suit Apple the situation could change.
