BrainChip Awarded Latest Patent for Event-Based Pattern Detection


Laguna Hills, Calif. – December 27, 2023 – BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN, OTCQX: BRCHF, ADR: BCHPY), the world’s first commercial producer of ultra-low power, fully digital, event-based, neuromorphic AI IP, was issued its latest U.S. patent, further strengthening its IP portfolio related to sustainable and efficient AI technologies.

Patent US 11,853,862, “Method, Digital Electronic Circuit and System for Unsupervised Detection of Repeating Patterns in a Series of Events,” facilitates learning in a digital hardware implementation of a spiking network. A key aspect of this unique approach is its effectiveness in performing accurate unsupervised detection or learning of repeating patterns, even when these patterns are embedded in high levels of noise, while being extremely efficient in reducing computing time, energy consumption and silicon footprint.

BrainChip’s Akida™ IP and MetaTF™ tools seamlessly transform contemporary neural networks into event-based or spiking networks. This patented technology uniquely synergizes with the converted spiking networks, enabling the streamlined deployment of edge learning algorithms and unlocking use cases that conventional AI tools or solutions cannot attain.

“While we push the bounds with our innovative neuromorphic technology, preserving its integrity is paramount.” said Sean Hehir, CEO of BrainChip. “With 13 patents issued in the U.S. alone, we stand as leaders in developing and implementing next generation AI technologies for intelligent Edge devices and on-chip processing”.

BrainChip’s portfolio now comprises 19 issued patents (13x US, 4x AU, 1x EP, 1x CN). In addition, there are nearly 30 pending patent applications across the US, Europe, Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, India, Brazil, Russia, Mexico, and Israel.
