KnuEdge has teamed up with the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) at UC San Diego to organize a conference on machine learning. Called the Heterogeneous Neural Networks (HNN) Conference, the event will take place next spring in San Diego.
KnuEdge is a big new player in the computing market. Founded by former NASA head Daniel Goldin, this summer the company officially launched its KNUPATH LambdaFabric processor technology, which mimics the neuronal network structure of the human brain to enable faster, decentralized information processing.
Now, it needs to put its technology to use practically, and to that end it recently hosted a hackathon for its Knurld voice technology, and is now organizing collaborative work with academia through the HNN Conference. The conference will involve a research paper competition, with participants invited to build heterogeneous and sparse matrix algorithms that will effectively exploit KnuEdge’s LamdaFabric technology.
KnuEdge also plans to submit its technology this year to Calit2’s Pattern Recognition Laboratory, where it could be used to develop powerful computer vision technologies, such as in the area of facial recognition.
