[Fast Company] You can now buy an Amazon Echo add-on that stops Alexa from listening

Alexagate is the latest effort from MSCHF, a Brooklyn-based startup that makes limited-run products with a rhetorical flourish. In this case, MSCHF’s point of view is that Amazon is snooping on users through its Echo speakers, and that users should have an easier way to turn off the mics. Kevin Wiesner, MSCHF’s creative director, calls Alexagate an “aftermarket privacy adjustment” with an adversarial bent.

[EETimes] Startup Reinvents Neural Network Maths, Launches 20mW Edge AI Chip

A silicon valley startup claims it has reinvented the mathematics of neural networks and has produced a complementary edge AI chip, already sampling, which does not use the usual large array of multiply-accumulate units. The chip can run the equivalent of 4 TOPS, with impressive power consumption of 55 TOPS/W, and according to the company, achieves data-center class inference in under 20mW (YOLOv3 at 30fps).

[EE News Analog] Perceive launches edge AI inference processor

A 2018 startup and subsidiary of Xperi Corp. – Perceive Corp. (San Jose, Calif.) – has developed an edge machine learning chip called Ergo.

The chip requires custom software training but achieves 55 TOPS/W inferencing, 20x to 100x  higher than the efficiency of many alternatives. This begs the question what in the case of the Ergo chip is an operation?

[Forbes] Perceive Claims 20-100X AI Efficiency At The Edge

Perceive Corporation, a spinout from audio and image chip company Xperi, claims to have put data center class processing into a low cost, 20 milliwatt 7×7 mm chip, delivering 55 TOPS/Watt for edge device AI. Since 2-5 TOPS/Watt is now considered world-class for edge devices, I was initially skeptical. Upon further examination though, it looks like these guys may be on to something interesting here.
