Comes with Qualcomm on brain-inspired chips for smartphones and robots

Qualcomm is working on neural processing units: reprogrammable chips whose action in combination with software that the brains to mimic and to process those complex tasks efficiently. The chips should appear in 2014 and come into robots and smartphones.

Qualcomm is working with a company in which it invests, Brain Corp., The project Zeroth, whose name is derived from Isaac Asimov’s Zeroth Law of Robotics. The aim of the project is to develop the functioning of human brains mimicked. Hardware and algorithms

The first chips based on the platform are developed based on the needs of partners and go into production next year. Qualcomm’s technical chief executive Matt Grob cites as examples of applications for artificial vision sensors for robot controllers, brain implants and, ultimately, smartphones that can efficiently absorb and process information.

The neural processing units or NPU’s processing data in parallel and are reprogrammable. The chips work in conjunction with software tools to change the way networks of neurons process of modeling information. “We want to make it easier for researchers to make a part of the brain,” said Grob during EmTech Conference MIT Technology Review, “They can quickly develop and simulate neural architectures with our tools.” The platform is scalable according to the CTO and should eventually lead to machines that can ‘learn’ and can program themselves, without software operations for writes.

Qualcomm has itself developed a robot vehicle based on the platform. If it is told that he has a right place achieved, he then figure out how he can achieve without instructions this place again. Furthermore, companies are more concerned with neural chips, including IBM and Intel .
