Breaking the AI sound barrier with Doctor Syn

Executive Summary The problem facing the AI industry today is that many of the functions at the heart of machine learning processes were written over forty years ago when computer hardware and compiler technology were very different. Our library, Doctor… Read More

Google Summer of Code: AI support for CORE-V

My Google Summer of Code (GSoC) project builds upon a previous joint project between Embecosm and Southampton University, which recently developed an open source AI/ML ISA extension for a RISC-V core. This project extended a CV32E40P RISC-V core… Read More

Open Source Dynamic Causal Modelling of COVID-19

As part of our work in Open Source and Machine learning, Embecosm has recently been undertaking a project to make the UCL model of the COVID-19 pandemic fully free and open source (see the repository here). The UCL model… Read More

GSoC Projects: Accelerating RISC-V for AI/ML Applications

Embecosm has been working with Southampton University as an industrial partner for it’s MEng final year Group Design Projects. The scope of this project was to create a RISC-V based instruction set extension to accelerate AI and machine learning applications. Read More

Comparing Compilers: A Statistical Perspective

Here, we discuss an interesting problem: the task of analyzing the respective performance of two compilers to see which one is better. Explicitly, we have two (or more) different compilers that we wish to compare, and we’re trying to quantify… Read More

Face Detection with the EdgeTPU using Haar Cascades

Introduction I have been exploring the capabilities of the Google Coral development board and working towards a functional face recognition implementation on the embedded device. In a previous blogpost, I discussed an overall view of how the… Read More
