PARIS-Wednesday 7 November 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Blockchain technology company IOV and mobile network optimization leader Be-Bound have initiated a formal collaboration to bridge the digital divide in the world’s most vulnerable communities.

The agreement between the two Paris-based companies brings together Be-Bound’s Augmented Connectivity and IOV’s blockchain simplification process, to enable the deployment of applications tailored to less-connected areas of the world.

Be-Bound’s technology expands mobile and IoT coverage to 95% of the world’s population using existing networks - eliminating the need for additional infrastructure investments.

In areas where the population does not have access to basic instruments necessary to store and trade value such as a bank account, enhancing blockchain tools with Augmented Connectivity can boost and distribute economic growth.

TOKYO-Wednesday 7 November 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Toshiba Memory Corporation, the world leader in memory solutions, today announced the development of a high-speed and high-energy-efficiency algorithm and hardware architecture for deep learning processing with less degradations of recognition accuracy. The new processor for deep learning implemented on an FPGA [1] achieves 4 times energy efficiency compared to conventional ones. The advance was announced at IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference 2018 (A-SSCC 2018) in Taiwan on November 6.

Deep learning calculations generally require large amounts of multiply-accumulate (MAC) operations, and it has resulted in issues of long calculation time and large energy consumption. Although techniques reducing the number of bits to represent parameters (bit precision) have been proposed to reduce the total calculation amount, one of proposed algorithm reduces the bit precision down to one or two bit, those te ...
