A team of Chinese and Swiss scientists has jointly developed an energy-efficient neuromorphic sensing and computing chip that mimics the neurons and synapses of the human brain.

The human brain, capable of processing incredibly intricate and expansive neural networks, operates with a total power consumption of just 20 watts, significantly lower than that of current AI systems. Therefore, neuromorphic or brain-like computing offers promising energy-saving machine intelligence.

Researchers at the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and SynSense AG Corporation in Switzerland created this asynchronous chip, dubbed “Speck,” which has an impressively low resting power consumption of just 0.42 milliwatts, the which means it consumes almost no power when there is no input.

This work offers artificial intelligence applications to a brain-inspired solution characterized by exceptional energy efficiency, minimal latency and reduced power consumption, said Li Guoqi, one of the study’s corresponding authors.
