AI Goes Ultra Low Power — Part 1

Based on the concept of the new Federal Agency for Jump Innovations (PSRIN-D), the BMBF initiated three pilot innovation competitions. One of them presented the participants with the task of developing the most energy-efficient AI system possible as a hardware implementation on an ASIC or FPGA. With this, a stack of hundreds of two-minute long ECG signals should be analyzed with a minimum of en... » read more

System Bits: Dec. 8

Path to quantum transistors An odd, iridescent material that's puzzled physicists for decades turns out to be an exotic state of matter that could open a new path to quantum computers and other next-generation electronics, according to University of Michigan physicists. The researchers have been able to confirm that several properties of the compound samarium hexaboride that raise hopes for... » read more
