MIT’s 168-Core Chip Will Soon Bring AI to Smartphones, IoT Devices

MIT researchers unveil 168-Core Chip that will bring AI in your mobile devices and IoT devices Last Wednesday, MIT researchers presented a chip designed to implement neural networks to process data faster at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco. The chip is claimed to be 10 times as efficient as a mobile graphics processor (GPU) that will enable mobile devices to run artificial-intelligence algorithms locally. Dubbed ‘Eyeriss’, neural nets are sometimes branded ‘deep learning’. MIT researcher Vivienne Sze whose group developed the chip says “Deep learning is useful for many applications, such as 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 phone or…
