MIT comes up with deep learning for mobile

MIT researchers have emerged from their smoke filled labs with a new chip which can provide mobile gear deep learning properties.At the International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco this week, MIT researchers presented a new chip designed specifically to run mobile neural networks. The chip is 10 times as efficient as a mobile GPU and means mobile devices could run powerful AI algorithms locally. Vivienne Sze, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at MIT whose group developed the new chip said that deep learning was useful for many mobile applications including object recognition, speech, face detection. “Right now, the networks are pretty complex and are mostly run on high-power GPUs. You can imagine that if you can bring that functionality to your cell phone or embedded devices, you…
