Recently, we ran a webinar entitled, “Enabling efficient implementation of neural networks in smart cameras”. If you missed it, it’s worth checking out, as we take a close look at the smart camera market and the need to embed neural network accelerator in edge devices. For those with an eye on the industry, this move to the placing intelligence in … Continued

For many years, the semiconductor industry has strived towards tightly integrating more and more components into a single system-on-chip (SoC). After all, it is an entirely practical solution for high volume applications. By optimally positioning the various cores, memories and peripherals chip manufacturers are able to minimise data pathways, improve power efficiency and optimise for high performance, while significantly reducing … Continued

In the early 1980s, TV was full of exciting new fantasies about how technology would change our lives. From digital watches that would make us invisible (Gemini Man, a tech sadly still not here), through vehicular fantasies like Airwolf, to the full body augmentation of the Bionic Man/Woman. None captured my imagination more than Knight Rider, in which David Hasselhoff’s … Continued
