Machine learning and AI demand enormous amounts of horsepower, if you're doing it on general-purpose processors, which is why companies like Meta and Alphabet have spent billions developing their own specialized neural network accelerators. Intel wants a piece of the AI-acceleration pie of course as well, and that's... Read more...
Intel Labs has announced that it has made a noteworthy advancement in the area of integrated photonics research, which it bills as the "next frontier" in expanding communications bandwidth between compute silicon in data centers and across networks. The company believes this advancement holds the promise of a future... Read more...
Let's talk about neuromorphic computing. Whereas traditional computers have processors and memory as discrete components, neuromorphic computing attempts to emulate the brain in that each functional elementeach synapseis both processor and memory. This radically-different approach to computing requires... Read more...
In the computing field, it can be extremely difficult to differentiate buzzword bunkum from meaningful messages. That's especially true when we're talking about emerging technologies and the products based on them. It seems like every other week there's a big announcement about an upcoming bit of tech that will... Read more...
In 2020 a study showed the IT industry spent an estimated $2 trillion in software development associated with debugging code. The study also showed that 50 percent of IT budgets were allocated to debugging code alone. Intel hopes to change those numbers by making its ControlFlag tool open-source. ControlFlag is an...

With the proliferation of artificial intelligence in recent years, the term "neuromorphic" is being used much more often in the tech sector. If you're a native English speaker, you can probably surmise that neuromorphic means something along the lines of "brain-like." Indeed, the buzzword of the day is... Read more...
Just when you thought you might have finally been getting a grasp on all of Intel's lake-inspired codenames, such as Coffee Lake, Ice Lake, Rocket Lake, and the list goes on, here is another codename to add to your mental repositoryPohoiki Beach, which consists of an 8 million-neuron neuromorphic system...

The brain is the most complex organ in the body and the most difficult to unravel. Scientists have developed a variety of ways to better understand the brain, including the use of supercomputers. The worlds largest neuromorphic supercomputer, the Spiking Neural Network Architecture (SpiNNaker), was just... Read more...
Coffee Lake is not the only thing Intel has been brewing up. The world's largest semiconductor company announced the delivery of a 17-qubit superconducting test processor for quantum computing to QuTech, its quantum research partner based in the Netherlands. Intel fabricated the chip with a unique design to improve... Read more...
Hot on the heels of the debut of its 8th gen Core series, and also its brand-new top-end Core X chips, Intel just announced Loihi. With this new chip, Intel is going all-in on artificial intelligence (AI) and self-learning. It also drops a term you may have heard recently: neuromorphic computing; in effect... Read more...
BrainChip has just announced a new add-in card that is specifically designed to accelerate neuromorphic computing. Neuromorphic hardware is tasked with mimicking the pathways of the human brain by using neural technology to process large amounts of data parallel in bursts or "spikes" over short span of...

Say it loud and clear with us: "Seven nanometers." That's pretty much a pipe dream right now, both in terms of how far removed we are from that achievement -- 7nm represents a chip technology that's three generations away -- and the technological hurdles required to get there. Nevertheless, IBM wants to make sure we... Read more...
According to a press release that crossed the wire today, IBM researchers have been able to develop prototype processors that function less like current CPUs and more like a human brain. The experimental chips are reportedly designed to emulate a brain’s abilities for perception, action and cognition. The so called neurosynaptic... Read more...
