Arm and NVIDIA unveil IoT play
Cambridge neighbours NVIDIA and Arm are partnering to bring deep learning inferencing to the billions of mobile, consumer electronics and IoT devices set to enter the global marketplace.
The tech allies will integrate the open-source NVIDIA Deep Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) architecture into Arm’s new Project Trillium platform for machine learning.
The collaboration will make it simple for IoT chip companies to integrate AI into their designs and help put intelligent, affordable products into the hands of billions of consumers worldwide.
“Inferencing will become a core capability of every IoT device in the future,” said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of Autonomous Machines at NVIDIA. “Our partnership with Arm will help drive this wave of adoption by making it easy for hundreds of chip companies to incorporate deep learning technology.”
Rene Haas, executive vice-president and president of the IP Group at Arm added: “Accelerating AI at the edge is critical in enabling Arm’s vision of connecting a trillion IoT device. Today we are one step closer to that vision by incorporating NVDLA into the Arm Project Trillium platform, as our entire ecosystem will immediately benefit from the expertise and capabilities our two companies bring in AI and IoT.”
