Putting AI at the Centre of Mobile Technology

This week scientists at MIT announced a breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence (AI) that puts deep learning at the centre of mobile technology. For the moment devices like smart cars, smartphones, and wearables are typically not efficient enough to perform complex tasks, like facial recognition, without being connected to the internet. But MIT’s findings could be a major moment that accelerates the take-up of the Internet of Things (IoT). Essentially, machine or deep learning on a mobile device is modelled on the anatomy of the human brain. When charged with a task, the device connects to a large virtual ‘neural’ network of ‘simple information-processing units’. Typically the process is fraught with issues. One is power consumption. Deep learning relies on a chip – the graphics processing unit (GPU) – that renders…
