MIT shows off power efficient chip designed for artificial intelligence

Share Share Share Share A team of US researchers has built an energy-friendly chip that can perform powerful artificial intelligence (AI) tasks, enabling future mobile devices to implement “neural networks” modelled on the human brain. The team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) developed a new chip designed specifically to implement neural networks. It is 10 times as efficient as a mobile GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) so it could enable mobile devices to run powerful AI algorithms locally rather than uploading data to the Internet for processing. The GPU is a specialised circuit designed to accelerate the image output in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. Modern smartphones are equipped with advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming. GPUs are an…
