TEMPO adopts videantis for edge AI chip, Stephan Janouch joins, and cool AI chips are green

videantis processor platform adopted for TEMPO neuromorphic edge AI chip

In July we announced that TEMPO is adopting our multi-core processor platform and toolflow for its neuromorphic mixed-signal edge AI chip. The development is part of the European TEMPO project and targets several autonomous driving use cases. TEMPO stands for “Technology & hardware for nEuromorphic coMPuting” and is an ECSEL JU innovation project supported by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.
Together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, Infineon, Valeo, InnoSenT and other leading European companies and universities, videantis will develop the neuromorphic artificial intelligence ASIC platform and software development tools specifically tailored for energy-efficient edge processing for intelligent autonomous vehicles.

Cool AI chips are green

When chips get hot, thermal management quickly becomes difficult. The chips need more complex power grids, more expensive packages and active cooling fans for instance. Lots of GPU-based systems even need water cooling. But besides these implications on form factor and design complexity, there’s another reason to keep power consumption low: it’s good for our planet, since most of our energy comes from fossil fuels that release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. “But chips just consume a few Watts,” I hear you say. In this article, we take a deeper look, do a quick quantitative analysis, and see what the impact really is.
This result? We save at least 1 ton of CO2 per vehicle over its lifetime.

Ship with no crew to sail across the Atlantic
A full-size, fully autonomous research ship is to make one of the world's first autonomous transatlantic voyages. Promare, a non-profit marine research organization, has worked with IBM, a global consortium of partners and scientific organizations to build the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS). Launching from Plymouth in the UK on 16 September 2020, the ship will travel to Plymouth, Massachusetts, after spending six months gathering data about the state of the ocean. Watch the video
