#artificialintelligence

WIRE)--BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN), a leading provider of ultra-low power high performance artificial intelligence technology, today announced it is sponsoring and presenting at tinyML Summit, a virtual event March 22-26, 2021. TinyML Summit will feature technical progress and ecosystem development within the "tiny" machine learning industry to enable ultra-low power ML in edge applications. Tiny ML is a growing field of ML technologies including hardware (dedicated integrated circuits), algorithms, and software capable of performing on-device data analytics at extremely low power to enable a range of always-on applications, primarily in battery-operated devices. Tiny ML is common in audio, visual, navigational, biometric, and medical devices as well as other commercial and industrial uses. Kristofor Carlson, BrainChip's Manager of Applied Research, will present a talk "It's an SNN future: Are you ready for it?


BrainChip Launches the Akida Early Access Program

#artificialintelligence

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 15, 2020 -- BrainChip Holdings Ltd announced an Early Access Program (EAP) for the Akida neural processor System-on-Chip (SoC). The EAP has been targeted at specific customers in a diversity of end markets for early adoption of the Akida device. Since announcing the start of wafer fabrication in April 2020, the demand for evaluation systems, including engineering prototypes, has been significant. In response to this demand, BrainChip has established an EAP for select partners to ensure availability of initial devices and evaluation systems for key applications. Multiple customers have committed to the advanced purchase of evaluation systems for a range of strategic Edge applications including ADAS/AV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Edge vision systems and factory automation.

BrainChip Holdings Ltd., a leading provider of ultra-low power, high-performance AI technology, ended the 2020 calendar year having made significant strides in the development of its technology backed by the launch of its Early Access Program (EAP), availability of Akida evaluation boards, new partnerships, and expansion of its executive leadership and global facilities. "This past year saw significant progress in the development of the Akida technology in terms of both market readiness and the increase in market possibilities that the solution will provide immediate impact in" The Company's EAP was launched in June targeting specific customers in a diverse set of end markets in order to ensure availability of initial devices and evaluation systems for key applications. Multiple customers have committed to the advanced purchase of evaluation systems for a range of strategic Edge applications including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles (AV), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Edge vision systems and factory automation. Among those joining the EAP include VORAGO Technologies in a collaboration intended to support a Phase I NASA program for a neuromorphic processor that meets spaceflight requirements. BrainChip is also collaborating with Tier-1 Automotive Supplier Valeo Corporation to develop neural network processing solutions for ADAS and AV.


BrainChip Presents on AI in Edge Devices at Linley Fall Processor Conference 2020

#artificialintelligence

WIRE)--BrainChip Holdings Ltd. (ASX: BRN), a leading provider of ultra-low power high performance AI technology, today announced that Chief Development Officer Anil Mankar will present "A Neuromorphic Processor for Power Efficient Edge AI Applications" at the Linley Fall Processor Conference 2020 October 20 at 9:30 a.m. BrainChip's presentation is part of the conference's first-day session "AI in Edge Devices." As part of the presentation, Mankar will provide an update on the AKD1000, BrainChip's first Neural network SoC (NSoC), and describe the advantages of processing information in the event-domain. A 10-minute Q&A session will immediately follow the conclusion of his speech. "Many edge-AI processors take advantage of the spatial sparsity in neural network models to eliminate unnecessary computations and save power," said Mankar.


BrainChip Showcases Vision and Learning Capabilities of its Akida Neural Processing IP and Device at tinyML Summit 2020

#artificialintelligence

BrainChip Holdings Ltd. (ASX: BRN), a leading provider of ultra-low power, high-performance edge AI technology, today announced that it will present its revolutionary new breed of neuromorphic processing IP and Device in two sessions at the tinyML Summit at the Samsung Strategy & Innovation Center in San Jose, California February 12-13. In the Poster Session, "Bio-Inspired Edge Learning on the Akida Event-Based Neural Processor," representatives from BrainChip will explain to attendees how the company's Akida Neuromorphic System-on-Chip processes standard vision CNNs using industry standard flows and distinguishes itself from traditional deep-learning accelerators through key features of design choices and bio-inspired learning algorithm. These features allow Akida to require 40 to 60 percent fewer computations to process a given CNN when compared to a DLA, as well as allowing it to perform learning directly on the chip. BrainChip will also demonstrate "On-Chip Learning with Akida" in a presentation by Senior Field Applications Engineer Chris Anastasi. The demonstration will involve capturing a few hand gestures and hand positions from the audience using a Dynamic Vision Sensor camera and performing live learning and classification using the Akida neuromorphic platform.
