Using machine learning to narrow down the possibilities for a better quantum tunneling interface

#artificialintelligence

A pair of researchers at Fudan University in China has used machine learning to narrow the list of possible improved tunneling interface configurations for use in transistors. They have published their results in Physical Review Letters. Over the past several decades, engineers have worked to uphold Moore's law, faithfully doubling the number of transistors that could be placed on an integrated circuit roughly every two years. But such efforts are in jeopardy due to the laws of physics--most particularly, those related to quantum tunneling that degrade performance. More specifically, the material that is used to separate gates on chips (interfaces) from channels has become so thin that charge carriers can wiggle their way through via quantum tunneling.


Qualcomm unveils 'AI Stack' portfolio to unify mobile, car, IoT and other devices

ZDNet

Mobile and IoT chip giant Qualcomm on Wednesday announced an expansion of its artificial intelligence developer runtime offering, called Qualcomm AI Stack portfolio, which the company claims will address the "Unique needs of AI for each and every business line" that Qualcomm's chips serve, including mobile phones, connected infrastructure in Internet of Things installations, and connected vehicles. The software incorporates existing tools, such as the company's Neural Processing SDK, while allowing developers to "leverage that same work across every product." "We are extending one technology roadmap across all our different business lines," said Qualcomm vice president of product management Ziad Asghar in a media briefing. "The step function here is to be able to take your work and port it across those different business lines." The software stack has a focus on power efficiency, such as how to quantize workloads, and portability of code across the many hardware targets of Qualcomm and its customers.


MIT engineers build LEGO-like AI chip - Electronic Products & Technology

#artificialintelligence

Imagine a more sustainable future, where cellphones, smartwatches, and other wearable devices don't have to be shelved or discarded for a newer model. Instead, they could be upgraded with the latest sensors and processors that would snap onto a device's internal chip -- like LEGO bricks incorporated into an existing build. Such reconfigurable chipware could keep devices up to date while reducing our electronic waste. Now engineers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge MA, have taken a step toward that modular vision with a LEGO-like design for a stackable, reconfigurable artificial intelligence chip. The design comprises alternating layers of sensing and processing elements, along with light-emitting diodes (LED) that allow for the chip's layers to communicate optically.

The Morning After: Sony made a $3,700 Walkman

Engadget

Sony has released two ultra-high-end Walkman MP3 players aimed squarely at audiophiles -- and no-one else. The headliner, the $3,700 NW-WM1ZM2 (pictured left), combines an S-Master HX digital amp with "fine-tuned" capacitors, thick Kimber Kable (to link the amp to the headphone jack) and a 99.99 percent pure gold-plated, oxygen-free copper chassis. It'll have 256GB of expandable storage. A lower-cost model, the $1,400 NW-WM1AM2 (shown right), offers similar functionality to the ZM2, but in an aluminum alloy body with'just' a low-resistance oxygen-free copper cable. You'll also have to make do with 128GB of expandable space. Both Walkman models are available now.


Engineers build artificial intelligence chip: The new design is stackable and reconfigurable, for swapping out and building on existing sensors and neural network processors

#artificialintelligence

Now MIT engineers have taken a step toward that modular vision with a LEGO-like design for a stackable, reconfigurable artificial intelligence chip. The design comprises alternating layers of sensing and processing elements, along with light-emitting diodes (LED) that allow for the chip's layers to communicate optically. Other modular chip designs employ conventional wiring to relay signals between layers. Such intricate connections are difficult if not impossible to sever and rewire, making such stackable designs not reconfigurable. The MIT design uses light, rather than physical wires, to transmit information through the chip.


Sony PlayStation's new God of War video game planned for November

The Japan Times

The highly anticipated PlayStation game God of War Ragnarok is planned for release this November, according to three people familiar with the game's development, despite reports this week that it had slipped to 2023. Publisher Sony Group Corp. is expected to announce the release date later this month, two of the people said. This could be due to a conflict with your ad-blocking or security software.

This business is deploying 40 Samsung-powered robots to roam its halls

ZDNet

The South Korean tech giant Naver is partnering with Samsung to deploy 40 robots in Naver's new second headquarters. The robots will roam around three floors of the new building, showcasing what businesses can do with cloud computing and private 5G networks -- all the while, they'll be serving coffee and delivering packages to Naver's employees. "NAVER's new headquarters serves as a test bed to explore technologies of the future, where 5G network and cloud play a central role," Sangyoung Han, Executive Director at Naver Cloud Strategy and Planning at Naver Cloud, said in a statement. Naver and Samsung signed an agreement in March to jointly develop new private 5G networks business models and use cases. Private 5G networks give enterprises a way to bring secure and reliable connectivity to locations where they are running data-intensive applications.
