tinyML Talks Webcast: Using TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers for High-Efficiency

Deeply-embedded AIoT applications doing neural network (NN) inference need to achieve specified real-time performance requirements on systems with limited memory and power budget. Meanwhile, developers want a convenient way of migrating their NN graph designs to an embedded environment. In this talk, we will describe how specific hardware extensions on embedded processors can vastly improve the performance of NN inference operations, which allows targets to be met while consuming less power. We will then show how optimized NN inference libraries can be integrated with well-known ML front-ends to facilitate development flows. To illustrate these concepts, we’ll show the Synopsys MLI Machine Learning Inference library running on a DSP-enhanced DesignWare ARC EM processor.
