Recently, the need to use AI in embedded edge devices has been rapidly increasing compared to the need to use AI and Deep Learning dealt with on the cloud. The difference is that edge AI can learn and predict at the same time on the devices, which accelerates the speed of processing. However, former AI requires to learn on the cloud server side and needs to telecommunicate with edge device, which causes some delays. Industries like robotics and autonomous cars require high speed control on edge device and they find the need to use edge AI. This is what this startup is about; developing an algorithm that processes AI on the edge.
