Deep Learning Processor Sets Performance Benchmark

Hailo unveils the Hailo-8TM, what the company is calling the world’s top performing deep learning processor. The chip is built with a unique architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep learning applications that could previously run only on the cloud.

Hailo sees key disadvantages existing in the current architecture of the embedded processing infrastructure, designed based on a 70-year-old underlying structure. Hailo’s holistic solution rethinks the existing pillars of computer architecture – memory, control, and compute – and incorporates a key, comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) co-developed with the hardware. 

The Hailo-8 processor features up to 26 terra operations per second (TOPS) at a size smaller than a penny, including the required memory. By designing an architecture that relies on the core properties of neural networks, edge devices can now run deep learning applications at full scale more efficiently, effectively, and sustainably than traditional solutions, while significantly lowering costs. According to preliminary results comparing Hailo-8TM to Nvidia’s Xavier AGX, which runs NN benchmarks such as ResNet-50, Hailo-8 consumes almost 20 times less power while performing the same tasks.

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.
