Article summary:

AnotherBrain, a French startup, has developed an AI-powered chip that is designed to imitate the brain’s structure and learn autonomously. The technology aims to transform every sensor into a smart sensor for use in the industrial automation, IoT and automotive sectors. Sensors equipped with its technology can understand what they see and hear, without the need for a connection to the Cloud.  The company says major benefits include built-in explainability, which is key to ethical AI, the ability to work locally (enabling higher levels of security and privacy), and extremely low energy requirements.

The technology is first being tested for use in quality control on production lines by Germany’s thyssenkrupp Steel, France’s Groupe Seb (an investor in the startup), and large companies in the automotive, cosmetics and aviation sectors.
