MIT’s Eyeriss Low Power Chip Brings Artificial Intelligence To Mobile Devices

MIT has designed a new super chip with 168 cores that is capable of executing advanced artificial intelligence tasks and algorithms locally. Unique quality is that the chip is 10 times more power efficient than graphic processors deployed in mobile phones today. Eyeriss, the super chip, performs complex AI algorithms locally, without communicating with a server over an internet connection, thereby eliminating a major battery-draining operation. Scientists are hopeful of these chips being the neural network of smart devices, and could greatly catalyze the Internet of Things. ​ Neural networks are computer systems that mimic the human brain and nervous system’s anatomy. The complications of the architecture and consumption of power have limited scientists from bringing AI to smartphones and wearable gadgets. But MIT’s new chip, Eyeriss, is an ultra…
