MIT researchers create super-efficient AI-powered chip --- ‘Eyeriss’

In a last-week announcement, researchers at MIT said that they have developed a new energy-efficient chip for mobile devices. The chip -- a graphics processing unit (GPU) -- has been designed to perform powerful tasks related to artificial intelligence (AI).

The new chip created by MIT researchers is called 'Eyeriss.' It comes with 168 cores, just like most of the other existing GPUs. However, the new chip boasts the capability to enable 'neural networks' -- which have been modeled on the brain -- embedded in the GPUs of mobile devices.
