VentureBeat: BrainChip launches Neuromorphic Process for AI at the Edge

via VentureBeat

BrainChip today announced the commercialization of its Akida neural networking processor. Aimed at a variety of edge and internet of things (IoT) applications, BrainChip claims to be the first commercial producer of neuromorphic AI chips, which could deliver benefits in ultra-low power and performance over conventional approaches.

As AI has continued to grow over the last few years, it’s expected that AI at the edge will become a bigger portion of the market. This is known as the artificial intelligence of things. Various conventional processor vendors such as Intel and Nvidia have launched AI chips for these lower-power environments, respectively, through their Movidius and Jetson product lines. Computing at the edge further results in lower latency than sending information to the cloud.
