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.
Simon Forrest explains how embedded chips can meet the challenge of delivering true local AI processing. GPUs and NNAs are rapidly becoming essential elements for
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
In our report on last year’s Embedded Vision Summit, we observed that machine learning was at the top of the classic Gartner hype cycle. Imagination

The impact of GDPR On 25th May 2018, all member states of the European Union will adopt the new General Data Protection Regulations (also called
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
