New deep learning product launched

Production-proven-DLOn January 9th, we announced our new deep learning processor and tools at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Since our processor has higher performance than any other vision processor on the market, we received a lot of interest. After interviewing us, the EETimes published an article that provides additional information to our press release. In addition, our new v-MP6000UDX processor and v-CNNDesigner automated mapping tool were listed as IP of the week at the Design and Reuse website.

The v-MP6000UDX processor scales from typically 8 to up to 256 cores with 64 MACs per core. This results in industry-leading performance, scaling to 25 TMAC/s and 16384 MACs per cycle, while remaining very low power and bandwidth efficient.

CES demo video

CES demo videoIn our private suite we showed several computer vision demonstrations running on our vision processing platform. Demos included an automotive camera from ADASENS/FICOSA, Structure from Motion/SLAM, different object detectors, optical flow, OpenCV acceleration, video compression and decompression, and of course our deep learning technology. Brian Dipert from the Embedded Vision Alliance stopped by our suite to shoot a demonstration video.

We’re the only company that runs all these tasks on a single unified processing architecture. This simplifies SOC design and integration, eases software design, reduces unused dark silicon, and provides additional flexibility to address a wide variety of use cases.

Google turns Chrysler minivans into autonomous vehicles
Waymo is moving from R&D to true deployment and operations of its self-driving vehicles. Two months after the Alphabet self-driving car spinoff announced it would start running a truly driver-free service in Phoenix this year (as in, cars romping about with no one at the wheel), the company now unveils how it will do it: with the help of thousands more Chrysler Pacifica hybrids.

TED talk from Yolo’s creator
Joseph Redmon works on the YOLO (You Only Look Once) system, an open-source method of object detection that can identify objects in images and video —  from zebras to stop signs — with lightning-quick speed. In a remarkable live demo, Redmon shows off this important step forward for applications like self-driving cars, robotics and even cancer detection.
