Spiking neural network dev kits for sound and vision
Speck is an event-driven neuromorphic vision SoC that uses dynamic vision sensing and the spiking neural network technology. It is a follow-on processor to the Dynap-CNN with which SynSense started in 2017 when it was founded as aiCTX GmbH in 2017.
Speck event-based image sensing technology with a 320,000-neuron processor to deliver real-time vision processing at milliwatt power consumption, the company said. SynSense provides an open-source software tool chain to enable the training and deployment of convolutional neural networks with up to nine layers.
Xylo is a low-power neuromorphic processor for low-dimensional signal processing and therefore is suited to processing audio streams. Audio is not limited to keyword detection, but is capable of detecting almost any audio feature. Application development is made easy with SynSense’s open-source Python library called Rockpool.
