TinyML: The power / cost conundrum
Mark LIPPET, CEO and President , XMOS

When we think about cost, we have our eye firmly on the customer: what are the products and features they need now and, in the future – and can we develop compelling solutions at a price point that’s attractive for both of us? When it comes to power, needs and attitudes are much more nuanced. There’s a clear focus on battery life and sustainability, but power is often viewed at a component level versus a system level.

Focusing on low power at a single system component level can lead customers to overlook the energy consumption / cost of the system as a whole (as well as the long-term cost and value it brings to the end user).

In this session, we will explore a more representative way of measuring energy consumption in TinyML processors, and the system trade-offs that must be made to minimise energy consumption and lower cost.
