Correction: Researcher-Learning Chip story
Nov. 06, 2017
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — In a story Nov. 5 about University of Dayton researcher Tarek Taha, The Associated Press reported erroneously on the size of the award he won from the National Science Foundation. It was for $440,000, not $44,000.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Researcher awarded grant to work on artificial intelligence
A researcher at the University of Dayton has won an award to develop a brain-inspired computer chip that can learn on its own
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A researcher at the University of Dayton has won an award to develop a brain-inspired computer chip that can learn on its own.
Associate professor Tarek Taha will use the three-year, $440,000 award from the National Science Foundation to work toward his goal of developing an artificial intelligence chip. Taha says the chip will be more efficient and compact than current ones.
Taha says deep learning artificial intelligence chips can be used in self-driving cars and could potentially be used in robots at some point.
He says the chips are a part of an emerging multibillion-dollar industry, which could ramp up to develop learning networks for existing applications.
