MIT Teases AI-Powered Chip for Phones (and Cows?)

MIT engineers are exploring with a new super-efficient graphical processing unit (GPU) designed for AI. “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. Last week, MIT researchers unveiled a chip that is 10 times as efficient as existing GPUs. It can be added to vehicles, appliances, manufacturing equipment, and even livestock. The goal: enable these devices (and farm animals) 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…
