Korean institute develops lowest-power-consuming AI chips for facial recognition

Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAST) has developed the “K-Eye” series chip, which it says is the world’s lowest-power-consuming artificial intelligence (AI) chip for facial recognition, according to a report by The Investor.
The K-Eye series is available in two versions. The first version is a wearable device that resembles a necklace and can be connected to handsets via Bluetooth.
The second version is a dongle unit that can be attached to smart hones similar to a portable USB drive.
A minimum of 1 milliwatt of electricity is needed to fully operate the chip and recognize a person’s face at up to 97 percent accuracy.
This is just a fraction of the power that other AI chips require. For instance, the amount of power required for K-Eye is approximately 0.0002 percent of the power consumed by the central processing unit of Google’s AlphaGo.
