GrAI Matter Labs has presented its processor at the Linley Fall Processor conference and compared its chip to Loihi from Intel and IBM's TrueNorth chip. At keyword spotting GrAI One can spot a word in less than 3 microseconds and consumes 0.1mJ per inference compared with Loihi's 0.8mJ per inference. At hand gesture recognition GrAI one takes less than 1 microsecond and consumes 25mW compared to TrueNorth's 44mW.
The GrAI One is supported by the GrAIFlow software development kit. This allows both conventional program execution and machine learning computation via industry-standard frameworks and languages such as like TensorFlow, Python and C++. The kit includes compiler, simulator, debugger, graphical editor and compute and network.
GrAI Matter Lab’s technology is based on research carried out at the Vision Institute (UPMC) in Paris on the human brain over the past 20 years.
GrAI Matter Labs was founded in 2016 and already has 46 employees. The company closed a Series A round of equity financing worth $15 million in 2018, led by iBionext, 360 Capital Partners and 3T Finance.
