To make predictions, artificial intelligence (AI) relies on the processing of large amounts of data and that takes a lot of energy. Imec develops solutions to drastically reduce that energy consumption. A new chip, in which these calculations are performed directly in the memory by means of analogue technology, is a major breakthrough in this field.
- Artificial intelligence goes hand in hand with high energy consumption as more and more calculations are sent to data centers.
- We could save a lot of energy if we could perform pattern recognition calculations where it makes most sense: on a wireless sensor, a mobile device, or in a car.
- Imec develops extremely energy-efficient hardware to enable this paradigm shift
