World’s First Open-Source AI Wearable Chipset


In September 2018, Huami announced what the company claimed to be the world’s first AI wearable chipset. The Xiaomi-backed wearable company also claimed that the Huangshan No. 1is the world’s first wearable chipset that is based on RISC-V open-source Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). The chipset is likely to support on-device inference on smartwatches and fitness trackers manufactured by Huami.

This development follows the launch of CK092, an IoT Central Processing Unit (CPU) based on RISC-V architecture by C-Sky, an Alibaba-owned chipset company. During the launch in early September, C-Sky also announced a collaboration deal with Pinecore, a chipset company also backed by Xiaomi, to produce RISC-V chipsets for Xiaomi’s ecosystem.

What Is RISC-V, and Why Is It Important?


Until now, the advancement in AI has been driven by non-open-source computing hardware. As AI use cases start to proliferate, more and more developers are looking to create purpose-bui…
