(This press release corrects the earlier release of November 22, 2022 as it misrepresented the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).)

LAGUNA HILLS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 22, 2022 / BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX:BRN)(OTCQX:BRCHF)(ADR:BCHPY), the world’s first commercial manufacturer of ultra-low power neuromorphic AI IP, announced today that the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has awarded the University AI Accelerator has joined the program to ensure students have the tools and resources needed to foster the development of cutting-edge technologies that will continue to usher in an era of foundational AI solutions.

The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) is a highly accredited technology institute with AI engineering programs that conduct research on fundamental and applied topics in artificial intelligence. This includes algorithms, logic, planning, machine learning, and applications from areas such as computer vision, robotics, and natural language processing.

BrainChip’s University AI Accelerator Program provides hardware, training, and guidance to college students with existing AI engineering programs. Students enrolled in the program have access to real-world, event-based technologies that provide unprecedented performance and efficiency to advance their learning to graduation and beyond.

Each program session includes a demonstration and training of a working environment for BrainChip’s development platforms (including Akida PCIe Boards, Akida Shuttle PCs and Akida Raspberry PIs) combined with lecture-based teaching methods and hands-on experiential exploration.

“Strong collaboration with industry is a hallmark of RIT and plays a critical role in shaping our students’ college experience,” said Dr. Cory Merkel, assistant professor of computer engineering at RIT. “Working with leading technology companies like BrainChip will allow us to continue our tradition of providing students with training on cutting-edge technologies such as neuromorphic hardware, preparing them for tomorrow’s high-tech industries. We are excited about the opportunity to join BrainChip’s University AI Accelerator Program and look forward to having access to the tools and resources that will make our students successful beyond their academic careers.”

BrainChip’s Al IP neural processor is an event-based technology that inherently consumes less power compared to traditional neural network accelerators. BrainChip IP supports incremental learning and high-speed inference in a variety of use cases, such as: B. Convolutional Neural Networks with high throughput and unmatched performance in microwatt to milliwatt power budgets. Markets that will be impacted by BrainChip’s Essential AI technology include the next generation of smart cars, today’s and tomorrow’s smart homes, and Industrial IoT.

“Access to cutting-edge technology in academia is a great way for colleges to differentiate their curriculum and attract students looking to add value to their education,” said Sean Hehir, CEO of BrainChip. “As AI enablement proliferates as one of the leading technology paths for those pursuing a career in technology, the real-world benefits students derive from enrolling in BrainChip University’s AI accelerator program are immeasurable. We are proud to work with the faculty of RIT to ensure tomorrow’s leaders have the resources they need to thrive today.”

RIT joins current participants from Arizona State University and Carnegie Mellon University in the first year of the Accelerator program. Other universities interested in becoming a member of the BrainChip University AI Accelerator Program can find more details at
