BrainChip Holdings Ltd., a commercial supplier of neuromorphic AI, is leveraging its neuromorphic technology via the BrainChip University AI Accelerator Program. The program aims to share technical knowledge, promote cutting-edge discoveries, and guide students to become the next generation of tech innovators.
The program is a package of training, guidance, and hardware provision for students at higher education institutions with AI and engineering programs. BrainChip’s products will be available for students who enroll in the program to use in their projects for multiple use cases. The students will also have access to event-based technologies in real-world applications.
The AI accelerator program finished a pilot session at Carnegie Mellon University in the previous Spring semester. Five more universities are expected to join the sessions in the coming academic year.

Each session will demonstrate and educate students about a working environment for BrainChip’s AKD1000 on a Linux system, thus clubbing lecture-based tutoring with hands-on experiential learning. BrainChip’s Akida mimics the brain to analyze specific essential sensory inputs on the acquisition, data processing, and energy economy.
Prof John Paul Shen, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Carnegie, said, “Our students had a great experience in using the Akida development environment and analyzing results from the Akida hardware. We look forward to running and expanding this program in 2023.”
