MIT develops new AI chip for all things mechanical

“Deep learning:” it’s a phrase that must be music to the ears of every first grade teacher. It’s also an emerging area of machine learning research, one that engineers are exploring with a new super-efficient graphical processing unit (GPU) designed for artificial intelligence. MIT researchers recently unveiled a chip that is 10 times as efficient as existing GPUS. It can be used in a number of different things such as vehicles, appliances, manufacturing equipment, and even livestock. The goal is to enable these devices to adapt to their surroundings using artificial-intelligence algorithms. “Deep learning is useful for many applications, such as object recognition, speech, face detection,” said MIT Professor Vivienne Sze in a statement. “Right now, the networks are pretty complex and are mostly run on high-power GPUs. You can imagine that…
