Researchers at MIT have created a chip made to do only one thing, handle speech recognition. The big deal here is that this task would normally consume 1 watt of power, but this new chip is said to consume anywhere from .02 to .1 milliwatts.
People want more battery life with their phones, but the advancements in technology just haven't kept up with other aspects.
However, some MIT researchers have discovered a way to double the capacity of our lithium-ion batteries and say the tech could be in smartphones as soon as next year.
A team at MIT has developer a new machine learning mobile chip which with 168 cores which only consumed one tenth the power of a standard mobile chip. Named Eyeriss, MIT's new chip could be used in smartphones and wearables to offer neural processing rather than transferring local data to be...
