Intel aims to develop architectures using specialized applications and hardware components to address computing gaps at a rapid pace. The company plans to augment its partnerships with research, industry, government and academic organizations through the performance of various collaborative initiatives, Rich Uhlig, a senior fellow and director at Intel Labs, said in a blog post published Monday.
In addition, Intel released Pohoiki Beach, a chipset that portrays an 8M-neuron system through the use of 64 chips that each have 128 cores, in a move to reinforce collaborative efforts.
“We hope that providing ever-increasing scale of neuromorphic computing platforms will enable the research community to tackle entirely new classes of problems,” said Uhlig.
Uhlig noted that Intel created a community in 2018 to reinforce the creation of neuromorphic systems and algorithms through collaborative research, cloud computing and USB form factor tools. He added that the research programs under the community yielded studies in the usage of neuromorphic technologies.
