Tsinghua team released the world's first heterogeneous fusion brain chip.

Recently, the reporter learns from the kind of brain computing research center, tsinghua university, tsinghua university to develop the world's first class brain chip heterogeneous integration, based on this research paper "artificial general intelligence oriented heterogeneous cat chip architecture" as a cover story on August 1, on the authority of science journal "Nature" (Nature), realize China in chip and two fields of artificial intelligence in a paper just published in Nature, zero breakthrough.

The research, conducted by professor lu ping shi's team at tsinghua university's center for brain computing research, relies on precision instruments to demonstrate a self-driving bicycle powered by a new type of artificial intelligence chip.The hybrid chip, called Tianjic, has multiple highly reconfigurable functional cores that support both machine learning algorithms and existing brain-like computing algorithms.

The researchers tested this with an automated cycling system

Processing power of hybrid chips.This is a heterogeneous extensible artificial general intelligence development demonstration platform, which USES a sky machine chip to demonstrate the bicycle's self-balancing, dynamic perception, target detection, tracking, automatic obstacle avoidance, obstacle crossing, speech comprehension, autonomous decision-making and other functions.In the experiment, the unmanned bike can not only recognize voice commands and realize self-balancing control, but also detect and track pedestrians in front of it and automatically avoid obstacles.

It is generally believed that there are two ways to achieve general artificial intelligence, namely computer science orientation and neuroscience orientation.Due to the fundamental differences in the ideas, concepts and implementation schemes of these two roads, they depend on different development platforms and are incompatible with each other, which causes great obstacles to the development of artificial intelligence technology.Tianmobility can provide a hybrid and collaborative development platform for ai technology. With only one chip, tianmobility can simultaneously process multiple algorithms and models in an unmanned bicycle system, achieving real-time target detection, tracking, voice control, obstacle avoidance and balance control.This research is expected to open a new path for the development of more versatile hardware platforms.

"We have formed a multidisciplinary team, consisting of seven departments to form a brain computing research center, covering brain science, computer, microelectronics, electronics, precision instrument, automation, materials and so on.This is the key to the success of the project.""Mr. Shi said.
