Varying On Device AI Requirements 1

During his keynote address at the CadenceLIVE 2021 conference, CEO Lip-Bu Tan made some market trend comments. He observed that most of the data nowadays is generated at the edge but only 20% is processed there. He predicted that by 2030, 80% of data is expected to be processed at the edge. And most of this 80% will be processed on edge… Read More

TensorFlow Lite Needed for Audio

In all the hubbub about AI/ML, it’s easy to see why visual ML gets more attention. It’s got appeal because of applications such as autonomous driving. Because of this it’s easy to overlook the importance of audio ML. I own a Tesla and putting it into autopilot is very cool, but even it has voice recognition built in as an important feature… Read More
