Processor IP licensor ARM has announced a dedicated machine learning processor core and eeNews Europe spoke with Jem Davies, general manager of the machine learning group at ARM, and Dennis Laudick, vice president of marketing for machine learning (ML), to find out more.
Davies recently migrated from leading ARM's graphics and vision business.
Davies started our interview by making the point that machine learning computation by way of neural networks is a fundamental shift in computation and that ARM has been taking its time to try and make sure its architectural approach is sufficiently general and scalable to have a long life in the market. It has now completed designing the first hardware implementation, the ML processor, which it will distribute to licensees sometime in the middle of 2018. It is also offering an iteration of its object detection image processor; both under the Project Trillium banner.
