Aerendir Mobile integrates SiFive’s processor core IP for Edge AI

Categories Biometric R&D  |  Biometrics News

Mobile-based neural tapping technology developer Aerendir Mobile will incorporate semiconductor company SiFive‘s RISC-V processor core IP to reduce the cost and speed up adoption of AI-enabled processors at the IoT Edge and end point devices, the company announced. Effective Edge AI could enable Aerendir’s NeuroPrint biometric technology to operate on various types of devices without requiring cloud connectivity.

Under the partnership, Aerendir Mobile will introduce three cloudless, on-device AI options, ranging from a sophisticated version for high DSP performances, an intermediate, and a low-cost one.

The two companies predict a need for cost-effective high-end distributed learning capabilities for the IoT market, due to the growing popularity of 5G networks and data processing inefficiency of datacenters at the edge.

“A user-friendly connected IoT ecosystem requires ultra-smart, low-cost components that can perform adequately without relying on the cloud,” said Dr. Martin Zizi, CEO of Aerendir Mobile Inc. “Cloudless connectivity also enforces everyone’s privacy.”

“The need for custom SoCs designed with deep learning and scalability in mind is a key focus for SiFive,” said Naveed Sherwani, CEO of SiFive. “The potent combination of Aerendir’s IP with SiFive’s configurable RISC-V cores will help to drive the adoption of true AI at IoT edge and end point, where machine learning can benefit both industrial IoT and consumer device functionality.”
