This Mighty Brain Chip Is So Efficient It Could Bring Advanced AI to Your Phone

Via Singularity Hub | August 30, 2022

AI and conventional computers are a match made in hell.

The main reason is how hardware chips are currently set up. Based on the traditional Von Neumann architecture, the chip isolates memory storage from its main processors. Each computation is a nightmarish Monday morning commute, with the chip constantly shuttling data to-and-fro from each compartment, forming a notorious “memory wall.”

If you’ve ever been stuck in traffic, you know the frustration: it takes time and wasted energy. As AI algorithms become increasingly complex, the problem gets increasingly worse… Continue reading.
