Intel’s Neuromorphic System Hits 8 Million Neurons, 100 Million Coming by 2020: The 64-chip Pohoiki Beach system is used

Intel’s Neuromorphic System Hits 8 Million Neurons, 100 Million Coming by 2020: The 64-chip Pohoiki Beach system is used by researchers to make systems that learn and see the world more like humans.

"At the DARPA Electronics Resurgence Initiative Summit today in Detroit, Intel plans to unveil an 8-million-neuron neuromorphic system comprising 64 Loihi research chips—codenamed Pohoiki Beach. Loihi chips are built with an architecture that more closely matches the way the brain works than do chips designed to do deep learning or other forms of AI. For the set of problems that such “spiking neural networks” are particularly good at, Loihi is about 1,000 times as fast as a CPU and 10,000 times as energy efficient. The new 64-Loihi system represents the equivalent of 8-million neurons, but that’s just a step to a 768-chip, 100-million-neuron system that the company plans for the end of 2019."
