artificial intelligenceIndustry Outlook: Powering New Applied AI Solutions #emtechdigital

Naveen Rao is the Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Artificial Intelligence Products Group, Intel. Naveen views Moore’s law as an economic law. Naveen is talking about biological comparisons in order to use biology as a guide. There is a …

brainOne million core processors in neuromorphic supercomputer

A neuromorphic supercomputer now has one-million processor cores. The Spiking Neural Network Architecture (SpiNNaker) machine can perform 200 trillion actions per second. Each chip has 100 million parts. The goal is to continue to scale up by 1000 times and …

memristorMemtransistors advance neuromorphic computing

A Northwestern research team has developed a novel device called a “memtransistor,” which operates much like a neuron by performing both memory and information processing. With combined characteristics of a memristor and transistor, the memtransistor also encompasses multiple terminals that …

analogSuperconducting Synapse many times faster than human synapses could enable faster artificial brains

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a superconducting switch that “learns” like a biological system and could connect processors and store memories in future computers operating like the human brain. Above – Illustrations showing …

analogArtificial synapse for neuromorphic chips

Nature Materials – SiGe epitaxial memory for neuromorphic computing with reproducible high performance based on engineered dislocations Although several types of architecture combining memory cells and transistors have been used to demonstrate artificial synaptic arrays, they usually present limited scalability …

brainEvery nerve cell of a zebrafish’s brain monitored at the same time to identify alertness neurons

Stanford researchers were able to simultaneously monitor activity in every nerve cell of a zebrafish’s brain and determine which types of neurons were tied to alertness. Previously it was believed that there was a single alertness on/off switch but they …

analogRoadmap to human cortex scale neuromorphic hardware systems using analog technology

It should be possible to build a silicon version of the human cerebral cortex with the transistor technology that was in production in 2013. The resulting machine would take up less than a cubic meter of space and consume less …

computer architectureDubai plans roll out of chinese single passenger Ehang 184 self-flying pod taxis starting July 2017

Dubai has tested a Chinese prototype of a self-driving hover-taxi, its transport authority said on Monday, with the aim of introducing the aerial vehicle in the emirate by July. The test of the one-man electric vehicle comes as the city …

adiabatic quantum computerHyperloop Transportation Technologies has raised $30 million in capital and $77 million in commitments and land rights

Hyperloop One and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) are the two main companies working on Elon Musk’s vision of the Hyperloop. Both have set eyes on similar markets – the US, Emirates, Northern and Eastern Europe – to try and launch …
