These days we seem to take it for granted how powerful and sophisticated computers have become. We can talk to our phones and our Bluetooth speakers and they will respond with context-aware information; in certain cars you can take your hands off the wheel and let yourself be carried down the road by electronics, and we can share messages and … Continued

This week at the Embedded Vision Summit in California we are showcasing our latest Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) object recognition demo. Since launching the original demo at last year’s EVS, the demo has been expanded to include multiple network models and is now implemented using Imagination’s own graph compilation library – IMG DNN. What are CNNs? Before continuing, a quick … Continued
