Artificial neural networks (ANNs) make up a significant portion of machine learning and deep learning, ranging from simple, early networks consisting of only a handful of neurons, to more recent networks with hundreds of billions of parameters (e.g., GPT-3). Despite the clear success of ANNs, there is clearly much that we can still learn from biological systems, which have evolved an amazing variety of solutions to solve the same challenges that AI engineers face.

This article presents a flexible and general optimisation scheme for converting floating-point networks using Variable Bit Depth (VBD) compression as a step towards efficient, low-power inference.
Designers of neural network accelerator (NNA) IP have a Herculean task on their hands: making sure that their product is sufficiently general to apply to a very wide range of current and future applications, whilst guaranteeing high performance. In the mobile, automotive, data centre and embedded spaces targeted by Imagination’s cutting-edge IMG Series4 NNAs, there even more stringent constraints on bandwidth, area and power consumption. The engineers at Imagination have found innovative ways to address these daunting challenges and deliver ultra-high-performance and future-proof IP.
Recently, we ran a webinar entitled, “Enabling efficient implementation of neural networks in smart cameras”. If you missed it, it’s worth checking out, as we
The Visionary interview series: Carlos Sarria, Senior Developer Technology Manager, for PowerVR Developer Technology
Welcome to the latest in our series of Visionary interviews with our key thinkers at the company. In this instalment, we spend some time with
Recently, we released our first AI-orientated SDK – the PowerVR CLDNN. In this post we’d like to explain what it is, what it’s for, and
As a former technology journalist it’s not often I find myself bamboozled by technology, but the other day it happened. I was in the process of upgrading from one generic fruit-related smartphone device to another when something seemingly remarkable took place. I took the ‘new’ device out of the box and placed it on the table next to the old one and a message appeared on screen saying that it had detected another device and asked me if I would like to transfer my settings from the old device to the new one.
As technology buzzwords go, we think you’d be hard-pressed to find two that are more prevalent right now than neural networks and artificial intelligence; and
My mother is a retired nurse. She’s an intelligent woman, and when it comes to caring for patients, really knows her stuff. The other day
For many, PowerVR is closely associated with graphics technology, from the early days of desktop PC gaming to arcade consoles, and later to home consoles
