‘AI anywhere’ webinar on new edge AI use cases

The webinar – “AI Anywhere – ADI’s AI Accelerator IC Enables New Edge AI Use Cases” – will demonstrate how ADI’s MAX78000 edge AI accelerator significantly lowers the energy and latency needed to execute AI computations.

AI technology continues to grow and enable products like cars and cell phones to see and hear the world around them, but now, embedded devices with tighter cost, size, and energy constraints can also take advantage of this technology. This is bringing forth an explosion of new use cases for AI at the edge.

AI, however, requires extreme computational horsepower. But, say the companies, the MAX78000 is a new breed of AI microcontroller built to enable neural networks to execute at ultra-low power and live at the edge of the IoT.

“We’ve reached an exciting point where AI technology is now small enough, fast enough, and energy efficient enough to be embedded anywhere,” says Mike Foy, senior product manager of semiconductors at Digi-Key. “We’re excited to offer Analog Devices’ cutting-edge AI accelerators so our customers can take advantage of all of the new capabilities of this technology.”

Kristopher Ardis, executive director of the security, software & processors group at Analog Devices adds, “”Implementing AI at the edge, particularly for machine vision and hearing, has never been practical. The mathematical computations needed to answer questions like ‘What am I looking at?’ or ‘What word did I just hear?’ take up too much time and energy to be used in small, power-constrained devices. The MAX78000 changes that – now the advanced AI computations take less than 1% of the time and energy needed by other embedded micros, meaning that even coin-cell or energy-harvested devices can make use of AI.”

The webinar, which will be presented by Ardis, will cover:

  • The challenge of implementing Edge AI
  • Introducing a game changer with the MAX78000
  • New use cases for AI

The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 7, at 11 a.m. CDT. To attend, interested viewers can submit a registration form. For those unable to attend the live webinar, Digi-Key will send the recording after the event to those who register.
