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 Holdings Ltd. Claims that it's the first company to deliver a spiking neural network (SNN) architecture to market. The company will begin sampling its new neuromorphic system-on-a-chip (SoC) in the third quarter of 2019, preceded by an FPGA-based development board for designers anticipating the introduction. The Akida Development Environment is available now for early-access customers. BrainChip's forthcoming Akida Neuromorphic SoC (NSoC) will implement a newer approach to machine learning called spiking neural networks. SNNs are said to learn much more rapidly than other machine-learning systems in nearly real time, using smaller data sets, all while relying on significantly less processing, which translates into lower power consumption.
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?
One of the best performers on the ASX on Monday was the BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN) share price. The artificial intelligence company's shares rocketed 25% higher to 6.9 cents at one stage before closing the day 14.5% higher. Investors were buying the company's shares after it announced the receipt of an EAR99 classification for its Akida Neuromorphic System-on-Chip (NSoC), Akida Software Development Environment (ADE), and related technologies from the U.S. Government. The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) classification of EAR99, which BrainChip has now formally received, removes the barriers for exporting Akida to non-U.S. The EAR99 designation means the company does not require a pre-approval, or a license from the U.S. Department of Commerce, before delivering its solutions globally as part of sales and market expansion activities.
