A new MIT computer chip could allow your smartphone to do complex AI tasks

Tweet Share Yesterday, a team of researchers from MIT introduced a new computer chip optimized for deep-learning, an approach to artificial intelligence that is gaining popularity. The chip, dubbed “Eyeriss” could allow mobile devices to perform tasks like natural language processing and facial recognition without being connected to the internet. It’s the latest attempt to make the complex operations of machine learning more portable. That means that our smartphones, wearables, robots, self-driving cars, and other IoT devices could begin performing complex deep learning processes locally — something that until now has been very difficult to do. Deep learning has traditionally demanded large amounts of computer processing. GPUs, computer chips designed to render the graphics we see on our computer screens, are a good enough workhorse to handle the task. But GPUs…
