Seasoned semiconductor executive joins the Board to set the direction to scale the Innovative Analog AI SoC
SAN JOSE, Calif., November 19, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Ambient Scientific, Inc. has appointed Chris Allexandre to its Board of Directors, effective Sept. 10, 2020.
"We are delighted to welcome Chris to our Board of Directors," said GP Singh, founder and CEO of Ambient Scientific Inc. "His experience will be of immense help to fuel Ambient Scientific's growth and success, as the company pushes its breakthrough products in hands of beachhead customers. His extensive sales, marketing and operational experience will prove invaluable to drive company's goals and vision."
Ambient has built a groundbreaking AI compute technology that consists of a custom RISC processor, an analog matrix compute engine, 3D SRAM, and novel on-chip signaling. This technology delivers very high AI performance with ultra-low power consumption at a low cost. Ambient's first product GPX-10 is a general-purpose, programmable single-chip AI computer for micro-edge embedded applications. In addition to ten custom AI cores, GPX-10 includes ultra-low power, multi-channel ADC for connecting to multiple sensors simultaneously and sophisticated on-chip clocking innovations. GPX-10 is the industry's first chip that can perform On-Device AI training in addition to inference. Inference and training functionality of AI cores is software defined and each core can individually and independently switch between training and inference dynamically. This unique capability of character-morphing between inference and training, enables many new on-device, Edge AI applications such as user-defined programmable and adaptive voice menu, voice signature, voice authentication, self-healing, user and environment adaptation, predictive maintenance, etc.
"Ambient Scientific has a great innovative team that has developed groundbreaking AI technology and a rich AI chip-product roadmap. Its advanced AI technology reduces power consumption by more than 500%, reduces system cost significantly and still achieves high performance," said Mr. Allexandre.
