We have heard that Adapteva, the Lexington, MA, startup is raising capital for his company’s new computer, called Parallella. For this purpose, CEO Olofsson turned to Kickstarter, the online “crowdfunding” service that lets ordinary people invest money like venture capitalists. Today's article ."For chip maker, ‘crowdfunding’ computes article" on the Boston Globe tells you everything about it, and has a quote from me as well.
A new article on New scientist features Spikey, the new chip coming out of Karlheinz Meier's group. The University of Heidelberg, Germany, chip contains contains 400 "neurons". The original article (see link) describes the various networks the group was able to implement in the chip, which includes a variety of different circuits. The article also features MoNETA and the lab work. Read the rest of this entry »
