Chips Meet Edge 🀝

The edge is gonna be big, so it’s no surprise that the tech giants are racing to combine AI and edge. Google is the first of the non-chip makers I’m aware of bringing their new hardware to edge devices. So you’ll soon be able to build IoT and other small devices that harness the power of TensorFlow without needing a constant connection. πŸ“Ÿ

The beauty of the edge is that you can load pre-trained models on all kinds of smaller devices that will then run the models using the data they collect without needing to constantly shuttle data back and forth to the cloud. ☁️

Google also recently announced that TensorFlow officially works on the Raspberry Pi after teaming up with the Raspberry Pi Foundation to make it easier to install. πŸ“
