Toshiba advances deep learning with extremely low power neuromorphic processor

by Toshiba Corporation, Phys.Org

Toshiba Corporation continues to build on its commitment to promoting the Internet of Things and Big Data analysis with development of a Time Domain Neural Network (TDNN) that sues an extremely low power consumption neuromorphic semiconductor circuit to perform processing for Deep Learning. TDNN is composed of a massive number of tiny processing units that use Toshiba’s original analog technique, unlike conventional digital processors. TDNN was reported on November 8 at A-SSCC 2016 (Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference 2016), an IEEE-sponsored international conference on semiconductor circuit technology held in Japan.

WiFi for the Internet of Things gets a name: ‘WiFi HaLow’

by Matt Hamblen, Network World

Look for low-power, long-range gear to be certified in 2018

A new low-power, long-range version of WiFi that bolsters Internet of Things (IoT) connections will be dubbed WiFi HaLow, the WiFi Alliance revealed today in advance of CES.

WiFi HaLow (pronounced HAY-Low) is based on the pending IEEE 802.11ah specification. It will be used in coming years for everything from smart homes and wearables to smart cities and connected cars where thousands of battery-operated sensors can be connected to a single WiFi Access Point (AP).
