Toshiba debuts new ‘analogue’ chip for deep learning on IOT

November 7th, 2016 at 12:11 pm – Author Jon Martindale While we might need to fear the internet of things (IOT) causing ever larger DDOS attacks, there’s no denying that that network of devices will become more important in the years to come. That’s why Toshiba is looking to power it with its own hardware. It’s developed a new analogue processor which could be used for deep learning on the IOT. Typically deep learning, the practice of using high level abstractions to find solutions to complex problems with machine learning, requires a lot of processing power. Toshiba’s analogue system and Time Domain Neural Network does away with that, by networking a huge number of these processors together to allow for many simultaneous calculations, with a much reduced power footprint. “The most…
