Jetson TX2 is NVIDIA's latest board-level product targeted at computer vision, deep learning, and other embedded AI tasks, particularly focused on "at the edge" inference (when a neural network analyzes new data it’s presented with, based on its previous training) ( Figure 1
One of the most interesting resources for those interested in the rapidly growing field of deep learning is the " Cognitive Computing Startup List ," compiled by Chris Rowan of Cognite Ventures . As of February 21, Chris had identified 275 companies that are, in his words, "the most
At last month's MWC (Mobile World Congress), CEVA unveiled the XC12 , its latest DSP core for communication infrastructure applications. A significant feature set upgrade to the XC4500 DSP core precursor , the XC12 is tailored for the bandwidth, latency and user count demands of
It's remarkable to see the range of applications in which deep neural networks are proving effective – often, significantly more effective than previously known techniques. From speech recognition to ranking web search results to object recognition, each day brings a new product or

Computer vision promises to be the key to the next set of "killer apps"—computer vision-enabled apps that will leverage artificial intelligence to help keep us safer and healthier. But computer vision algorithms are compute- and power-intensive, and need to process large amounts of
In recent months, evidence has continued to mount that artificial neural networks of the "deep learning" variety are significantly better than previous techniques at a diverse range of visual understanding tasks. For example, Yannis Assael and colleagues from Oxford have demonstrated
Image-sensor maker Himax, processor core vendor CEVA, and algorithm provider emza Visual Sense have partnered to develop a low-power "always on" vision sensor module with integrated visual analytics. The three companies offered a conceptual demonstration of the product, dubbed the
Qualcomm formally unveiled the Snapdragon 835 , its latest premium-tier mobile processor, at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month after a last-fall "tease" . Sporting eight CPU cores and fabricated in Samsung’s latest 10 nm process, the new chip represents the next
“…software is changing at head-spinning rates, driven by advances in how computers process giant amounts of data using artificial-intelligence techniques,” said the Wall Street Journal in a recent article, highlighting the challenge faced by smartphone software
HPC (high-performance computing) servers, which have notably embraced the GPGPU (general-purpose computing on graphics processing units) concept in recent years, are increasingly being employed for computer vision and other deep learning-based applications. Beginning in late 2014, NVIDIA
