Developers using the edge computing platform may be interested in a new piece of hardware created by UP based in the Netherlands called UP AI Edge. As the name suggests it adds artificial intelligence and hardware acceleration ‘ON’ the Edge of the Internet of Things. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the UP hardware and its specifications.
The UP AI Edge platform offers developers and users and ultra-compact form factor, combining three powerful Intel technologies together into one device providing an Intel Apollo Lake SoC, Intel Movidius Myriad 2 VPU and Intel Cyclone 10GX FPGA. “Not long ago the trend has changed from the Internet of Things to Artificial Intelligence. At UP, we didn’t only stop at talking about this shift but we began to actually make it! From the hype of the very first x86 Raspberry Pi-like UP Board to the most popular IoT development platform, UP Squared. Not forgetting the post-it sized computing platform, UP Core, we’ve been launching each exciting project successively. With refueled excitement, we bring you UP AI Edge. The first embedded, ultra compact, high performance, low power consumption, Artificial Intelligence platform for Edge computing.”
Currently the AI Edge line has the following solutions.
– UP Core Plus
– AI Plus
– Vision Plus
– Net Plus
– AI Core
– AI Core M2
For more information in full specifications jump over to the official crowdfunding campaign page where the UP hardware is now available to back with early bird pledges available from €49. “Most IT solutions which are available today are focused on connecting Edge devices to the cloud and these deployments face challenges related to latency, network bandwidth, reliability and security. Experts in this field agree that not all the tasks and decision-making processes can be addressed in cloud-based models. UP AI Edge is the solution for those cloud limitations by bringing AI performance and hardware acceleration not ‘at’ but ‘ON’ the Edge of the Internet of Things and of the latest technology.”
