The red alert over high pollution has been withdrawn by the Beijing government, even though a cloud of dangerous mist exists over Beijing for the fifth consecutive day. The government has lifted the warning as it expects the smog to alleviate during the latter half of December 23. Currently, the city continues to experience further increase in smog during the day.
A revolutionary information chip has been created, by the researchers from Zhejiang University and Hangzhou Dianzi University in China, which will enable the operation of complex intelligent algorithms on small devices. The Darwin Neural Processing Unit (NPU) is a neuromorphic hardware co-processor derived from Spiking Neural Networks (SNN), fabricated by standard CMOS technology.
