Google and other companies are betting big on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and now the search giant has revealed some new AI processors.
These new AI processors are the Edge TPU which is a tiny processor that is designed for IOT, you can see more information on the device below.
Edge TPU is Google’s purpose-built ASIC chip designed to run TensorFlow Lite ML models at the edge. When designing Edge TPU, we were hyperfocused on optimizing for “performance per watt” and “performance per dollar” within a small footprint. Edge TPUs are designed to complement our Cloud TPU offering, so you can accelerate ML training in the cloud, then have lightning-fast ML inference at the edge. Your sensors become more than data collectors—they make local, real-time, intelligent decisions.
