Seems to me that facial recognition and voice recognition could be specific enough to allow for an ASIC sort of solution. To date however, not so much.

As we discussed earlier, the latest Google tensor chip is 30% more expensive to solve the same task than is the latest Volta from Nvidia. This is of course subject to the specific problem being solved. But despite this rule of thumb, to date, no ASIC has out done a Nvidia GPU except in very specific instances such as bitcoin, which one might expect, bitcoin is a very specific application.

Certainly could happen, but to date Nvidia is still the superior solution even against the toughest of its competitors.
