Unlock the Benefits of Artificial Intelligence for IoT Devices

AI is impacting everything. From the datacenter to the 5G network edge to every connected device, AI use cases are driving massive compute requirements. Billions of smartphones already make daily use of machine learning (ML) for voice recognition, image processing, and other applications, but many forecasts show the growth of IoT creating billions more devices—using AI to unlock even greater possibilities.

The majority of these IoT devices will be small, power and cost-constrained microcontroller-based systems. Network bandwidth and consumer expectations around data privacy and user experience continue to demand more on-device processing, while the ability to deploy AI to the smallest devices opens up new use cases for innovative developers.

Arm offers new compute technologies coupled with software and tools to help companies realize the full potential of AI for IoT, and to help streamline the design, development, and support for AI-based IoT applications. The Cortex-M55 and Ethos-U55 processors combined with Arm’s tools deliver up to a 480x leap in ML performance, bringing endpoint AI to billions more devices.
