IBM’s Brain-Inspired Analog Chip for Sustainable AI

Posted by Peter Rudin on 15. September 2023 in News

Chat-GPT and other generative AIs have taken the world by storm. Yet with current hardware, generative AI might be unable to meet the growing demand.

Digital computers are based on the Von Neumann architecture, separating processing(CPU/GPU) and the storing of information (Memory).

With an Analog Architecture, to process information, the brain and its neural network handles computation and memory access at the same location and time.

Simulating brain functionality with IBM’s new analog chip reduces energy demands while increasing the processing of recognition tasks by a factor of 7. As these chips become commercially available, dedicated applications will be key for the success of analog AI.
