AIfES – an open-source standalone AI framework for almost any hardware
In the last few years there have been more and more solutions for running machine learning (ML) on microcontrollers. Some of the most popular are scaled down versions of frameworks designed for servers. But those are only suitable for fairly powerful MCUs.
This is now a thing of the past. With the open-source solution AIfES (Artificial Intelligence for Embedded Systems) from the Fraunhofer Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems (IMS) it’s possible to run, and even train, artificial neural networks (ANN) on almost any hardware, including 8-bit microcontrollers. To be able to try AIfES directly, it has been released for the amazing Arduino IDE as a library and can be used with any Arduino or Arduino compatible board.
AIfES inventor and product manager Pierre Gembaczka will introduce the framework and will also show an on-device training live demo. The new features of the upcoming update will also be shown.
