Artificial Intelligence and Neural Nets on Small GPUs

Lately we’ve heard a lot about convolutional neural networks which are large virtual networks of simple processing units. And most of you are familiar with the implementation of neural nets using GPUs taking advantage of their massive parallel structure to simulate a large number of neurons. Today even your mobile phone may have as many as 200 GPU cores, all processing in parallel. And while these computations are much more efficient and speedy in the GPU version versus the CPU, it now is possible to do these neural net simulations at 1/10 the power of a GPU! Ideal for moving artificial intelligence into the mobile device. Researchers from MIT unveiled a new chip that is dedicated to neural network simulation. They call their new chip “Eyeriss”. Neural nets have been around for some…
