Lattice and Etron deliver low power reference design for Edge AI
Lattice Semiconductor and Etron, the memory IC and SoC innovator, have announced a memory controller reference design for Etron’s low pin-count RPC DRAM to enable low power Edge AI and video processing in applications requiring a compact form factor, including industrial cameras, drones, AR/VR systems, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
Lattice sensAI 3.0 solutions stack doubles performance
Lattice Semiconductor has launched the latest version of its complete solutions stack for on-device AI processing at the Edge, Lattice sensAI 3.0. The latest version of the stack includes support for the CrossLink-NX family of FPGAs for low power smart vision applications and features customised Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) IP, a flexible accelerator IP that simplifies implementation of common CNN networks and is optimised to further l...
World Bee Day: SAS cracks enigma code for bees
As part of its commitment to using data and analytics to solve the world’s most pressing problems, SAS’ recent work includes helping to save the world’s No. 1 food crop pollinator - the honey bee. With the number of bee colonies drastically declining around the world, in honour of World Bee Day, SAS is using technology such as IoT, machine learning and visual analytics to help maintain and support healthy bee populatio...
AI helps clear up COVID-19 data
As governors begin to make decisions about reopening the economy, Americans are left to wonder whether they should follow their state government’s lead – or make their own decisions about when to return to normal during this overload of COVID-19 data, but AI can help.
Altran improves software quality with Machine Learning
Altran has announced the release of a new tool, available on GitHub, that predicts the likelihood of bugs in source code created by developers early in the software development process. By applying Machine Learning (ML) to historical data, the tool - called 'Code Defect AI' - identifies areas of the code that are potentially buggy and then suggests a set of tests to diagnose and fix the flaws, resulting in higher quality software a...
AIoT has a nice ring to it
The Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is a relatively new term for the evolution of a domain Wind River has been playing in for a very long time. If we think of many of the first applications of Artificial Intelligence in connected devices, it is adding autonomy to previously human controlled systems. Guest blog written by Matt Jones.
AI gives green light to smart traffic lights
Seven towns across Kent and East Sussex have benefited so far from new smart traffic lights which reduce waiting times for drivers. The new system was successfully trialled by electricity firm UK Power Networks in Maidstone last summer and is now being used regularly across the South East.
Software accelerator to enable real world AI deployments
DeepCube has announced the launch of the only software-based inference accelerator that drastically improves deep learning performance on any existing hardware. Today, deep learning deployments are very limited and are primarily optimised for the cloud; and, even in these cases, they incur extensive processing costs, significant memory requirements, and expensive power costs, due to intensive computing demands.
ETSI launches AR framework for a multi-vendor ecosystem
The ETSI Industry Specification Group on the AR Framework (ISG ARF) has launched ETSI GS ARF 003, a key specification towards the interoperability of AR components. Today industrial and end users tend to frequently depend on a single provider to deploy AR applications and services.
The AI and healthcare community join forces
The most powerful names in AI and healthcare community will join forces online for Intelligent Health Inspired on the 25th-27th May 2020. At a time when collaboration globally is more important than ever; innovation must continue and healthcare and technology professionals must join forces to fight the biggest disruptor the world has faced in a generation, COVID-19.
