Next generation neuromorphic chips bringing deep learning from cloud to IoT Edge Devices and mobiles

Within AI is a large subfield called machine learning, the field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed. Instead of the laborious and hit-or-miss approach of creating a distinct, custom program to solve each individual problem in a domain, the single machine learning algorithm …
