NEURAL CHIP PLANNED BY COMPANY WITH UNIVERSITY LINKS

By CBR Staff Writer

A technology development company has linked up with a Scottish university to develop a neural chip designed to revolutionize the way that neural networks operate. Axeon Ltd says that a neural chip will allow the creation of networks using tens of thousands of neurons compared with the 1-20 that it is possible today to create in software. Axeon has signed a deal with the University of Aberdeen to commercialize its research, and the neural chip plans are based on a thesis by Dr Neil Lightowler, who has joined Axeon as a full-time member of staff. First project for the neural chip is a face recognition application that would have wide uses in security systems.
