Edge AI Solutions for Industry and Robotics: BrainChip and MYWAI Partner Up

BrainChip, the world’s first commercial producer of event-based, neuromorphic AI IP, and MYWAI, the leading AIoT solution provider for Edge intelligence in the EU, have joined forces to deliver next-generation Edge AI solutions for industry and robotics.

What are Edge AI solutions?

Edge AI solutions are applications that use artificial intelligence (AI) to process and learn from sensor data at the very Edge of the network, without relying on the cloud or central servers. This enables faster, more efficient, and more secure data processing and decision-making, especially for real-time and low-power scenarios.

How do BrainChip and MYWAI deliver Edge AI solutions?

BrainChip and MYWAI leverage their complementary technologies and expertise to provide Edge AI solutions that meet the needs and challenges of various industrial and robotic sectors, such as manufacturing, logistics, energy management, and healthcare.

BrainChip’s Akida™ is the first fully digital, event-based, neuromorphic AI processor, which mimics the human brain’s ability to analyze only essential sensor inputs, such as time series, audio, vision, and touch data, with unparalleled efficiency, precision, and economy of energy. Akida also enables Edge learning, which means it can adapt and improve its performance over time, without requiring cloud connectivity or data transmission.

MYWAI’s AIoT Platform for EaaS (Equipment as a Service) is a cloud-based platform that can stream, process, and prepare multimodal sensor data for Edge AI, as well as manage the Machine Learning Engineering for Production (MLOps) workflows, which involve data collection, model development, deployment, monitoring, and optimization. MYWAI also ensures the Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) certification of the data and outcomes, in line with the new EU regulations for trustworthy AI, which aim to ensure ethical, legal, and social standards for AI applications.

By integrating BrainChip’s Akida with MYWAI’s EaaS platform, the two companies can offer their customers a powerful and scalable solution for Edge AI, which can optimize their processes and machinery with efficient AI, delivering intelligence where needed, when needed.

What are the benefits of the partnership?

The partnership between BrainChip and MYWAI is expected to accelerate the adoption of Edge AI in the industrial and robotic sectors and generate significant value for both companies and their customers. By developing and delivering Edge AI solutions that use neuromorphic computing and AIoT platforms, the two companies can help their customers achieve unprecedented performance, efficiency, and security, as well as comply with the EU regulations for trustworthy AI.

“We believe in helping businesses reach new heights by adding intelligence to processes and machinery at the very Edge using Generative AI on the cloud and trustworthy AI at the Edge,” said Fabrizio Cardinali, CEO of MYWAI. “By integrating BrainChip’s Akida with our EaaS platform, we can enable our customers to optimize their processes and machinery with efficient AI, delivering intelligence where needed, when needed.”
