Loihi, a neuromorphic chip made to think like you.

No, its not another Westworld theory. A chip named Loihi, designed in Intel’s labs was recently presented in a study outlining its features and the potential of its architecture. It doesn't work exactly like an artificial neural network (ANN) but more like a spiking neural network (SNN). SNN is defined by the researchers as: “a… Continue reading Loihi, a neuromorphic chip made to think like you.

Spherical CMOS sensor being developed.

A recent patent showed up, for an omnidirectional optical sensor array. It basically portrays a CMOS sensor, whose individual light sensing modules are forming a sphere. It also describes a circuit that automatically renders the information and assembles a file that is easily digestible by a computer, making the files less demanding on the processor… Continue reading Spherical CMOS sensor being developed.
