Co-Creation! Accelerating AI in Embedded
AI technology in embedded system is often integrated in service model innovation rather than the manufactured product and it is highly sophisticated in the numerous tasks it performs including data collection, data analysis, pre-trained models, and inference. In terms of machine learning, programmed algorithms rely on powerful and reliable computing units for big data consumption. That’s why edge computing plays an important medium to satisfy the connection between the cloud and sensor devices.
With the partnership of Advantech, AMD, and Mentor, we can help customers accelerate AI implementation by integrating each party’s products and services. We are each devoting resources to make edge computing easier to apply so customers can concentrate on AI application development for their hardware and middleware. Advantech offers an embedded platform (SOM-5871/AIMB-228) equipped with the latest AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 processer, in combination with the Mentor® Embedded Linux operating system. The AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 processor supports frameworks, libraries, tools, and compilers for machine vison applications that leverage the full power of the Ryzen processor with Radeon™ Vega GPU technology. More importantly, the three companies embrace open standards such as OpenVX, OpenCL API supported on the Linux® kernel, so users can migrate machine learning across diverse hardware architectures for a variety of AI applications.
Rex Lee, Director of Advantech Embedded IoT Group, said, “Everybody can find lots of open source AI technologies. However, integrating AI technology into embedded systems is still a major challenge. Data collection, model training, and edge inference system deployment, nobody can do AIoT alone, that’s why Advantech works closely with our co-creation partners to accelerate AI deployment in embedded systems.”
