Emza and Alif Demonstrate Fast, Ultra-Efficient Object Detection for Tiny AI Edge Devices

Emza Visual Sense, a pioneer in Tiny AI visual sensing, is joining with Alif Semiconductor to show how the combination of powerful, highly efficient Arm®-based hardware and optimized models can make AI a reality at the edge. The companies are demonstrating Emza’s trained face detection model running on Alif’s Ensemble™ microcontroller (MCU), the first MCU featuring the Arm Ethos™-U55 microNPU. The Emza model runs an order of magnitude faster on the Ensemble device with Ethos-U55 compared to a CPU-only solution, with extremely low power consumption.

MLOps: Bringing AI to the Tactical Edge—and Making It Work

In this contributed article, Joel Dillon and Eric Syphard of Booz Allen, feel strongly that in order for machine learning to have a profound impact on data sharing for defense and the intelligence community, it’s imperative that data get communicated to warfighters at the tactical edge, where fast decisions are at a premium and compute power and connectivity are often scarce. It is critical that these edge use cases characterize and shape planning for AI and ML-driven investment as digitization continues to accelerate the pace of war.

Surpassing Decentralized Data Management Woes with Data Virtualization

In this contributed article, editorial consultant Jelani Harper discusses how data virtualization enables organizations to surmount obstacles (i.e. data quality, schema, and data integrations that are foundational to data management) and to focus on benefits (i.e. remote collaborations characteristic of working from home, the takeoff of the cloud as the de facto means of deploying applications, and the shift to external sources of unstructured and semi-structured data). Supplementing it with mutable graph data models boosts its applicability to data of all types.

Innovative AI Edge Device Cuts Costs and Delivers Faster Performance

Leopard Imaging has been working to address the need for affordable multiprocessing power in deep learning applications. Using Socionext’s SC2000 image signal processor and the Hailo-8™ M.2 AI acceleration module, Leopard Imaging’s EdgeTuring™ consumes less power, performs at a higher level, and ensures greater reliability for video analytics and privacy at the edge than alternative solutions.

Research Highlights: Attention Condensers

A group of AI researchers from DarwinAI and out of the University of Waterloo, announced an important theoretical development in deep learning around “attention condensers.” The paper describing this important advancement is: “TinySpeech: Attention Condensers for Deep Speech Recognition Neural Networks on Edge Devices,” by Alexander Wong, et al. Wong is DarwinAI’s CTO.
