XMOS and Plumerai partner collaborate on binarised neural networks

April 02, 2020 //By Ally Winning
XMOS and Plumerai have formed a strategic partnership to develop binarised neural network (BNN) capabilities that allow low-power, low-cost AI to be embedded in a range of devices.
XMOS and Plumerai will partner to commercialize binarised neural networking (BNN) to allow low-power, low-cost AI to be embedded in a range of devices.

Plumerai’s Larq software library for training BNNs will be combined with the xcore.ai crossover processor from XMOS which provides native support for inference of BNNs. The combination of the technologies is expected to provide a BNN capability that’s 2 to 4x more efficient than existing edge AI solutions.

BNNs are expected to be the most efficient form of deep learning, by going all the way down to just a single bit. However, to make BNNs commercially viable requires specific attention in chip design for efficient inference and new software algorithms for training.
