Ambarella Announces Breakthrough AI-Based Image Signal Processing


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), an AI vision silicon company, today announced its new Artificial Intelligence Image Signal Processor (AISP). The company is showcasing this technology at its invitation-only event during CES 2022 in Las Vegas this week, running on its CV2 edge AI perception systems on chip (SoCs). Drawing on its 17 years of experience in ISP processing and best-in-class CVflow AI engine, Ambarella's new AI based ISP architecture uses neural networks to augment the image processing done by the hardware ISP integrated into its SoCs. This approach enables color imaging with low light at very low lux levels and minimal noise, a 10 to 100X improvement over state-of-the-art traditional ISPs, and new levels of high dynamic range (HDR) processing with more natural color reproduction and higher dynamic range. Initially demonstrated on the CV2 SoCs during CES this week, the new AISP will become available across Ambarella's entire CVflow SoC portfolio at resolutions up to 4K.

The Growing Role of AI and Big Data in Healthcare


Population health studies patterns and conditions that affect the overall health of groups (unlike "public health," which focuses on how society ensures more healthy people). Big data is a massive part of this effort. A recent article in BuiltIn highlighted various companies that are leveraging big data to help healthcare organizations and researchers read the trends to improve health conditions. For example, one company called Linguamatics in Cambridge, MA uses natural language processing to mine through unstructured patient data to detect relevant lifestyle factors and predict which patients may be at higher risk for disease. Another company in Santa Clara, CA, called Hortonworks, helps organize and integrate billions of records so that pharmaceutical companies can do better research for clinical trials, raise the level of safety, and get products to market faster.
