About BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN, OTCQX: BRCHF)
BrainChip is a global technology company that produces a revolutionary neuromorphic processor that brings artificial intelligence to the forefront in a way that exceeds the capabilities of other products. The chip is high performance, small, ultra-low power, and enables a wide range of advanced capabilities that include on-chip training, learning, and inference. The Event-Based Neural Network Processor takes its inspiration from the cutting edge nature of the human brain and is implemented in an industry standard digital process. By mimicking brain processing, BrainChip pioneered a processing architecture, called Akida ™, which is both scalable and flexible to meet the demands of edge devices. At the edge, sensor inputs are analyzed at the point of acquisition rather than transmitting through the cloud to a data center. Akida is designed to provide a complete, ultra-low power and fast AI Edge network for vision, audio, olfactory and intelligent transducer applications. Reducing system latency provides faster response and a more energy efficient system that can reduce the large carbon footprint of data centers.
