How to Boost Performance on an Edge Device

In this tutorial, we will show you the steps needed to boost the performance of your edge device. You will need a hardware accelerator that is supported by alwaysAI – such as Intel’s Neural Compute Stick 2. We have more information on hardware accelerators in our documentation, which is available now. 

Finding Things in an Image in Real Time on the Edge

Recent advances in technology have greatly broadened the scope of object detection and related computer vision (CV) services. Hardware with advanced features paired with smarter neural networks has attracted developers and data scientists from numerous industries to start leveraging computer vision to solve complex business challenges. Combined with the rising popularity of embedded devices capturing data on the edge, computer vision on a grand scale has been exploding with seemingly endless...

Installing the alwaysAI Platform on Raspberry Pi

Note: The method described in this article is not your only option for installing the base operating system on your Raspberry Pi. You can also use NOOBS, an operating system installation manager to install the base Raspbian operating system. For information on NOOBS go to this website https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/noobs.md . If you do use NOOBS to do the initial operating system installation once finished go to Setting Up A Docker Container section of this document...

Using Object Detection on IoT Devices

Something big is happening. The real world is being radically transformed by tech that has never had as much intelligence and capability as it does today. Sea changes are on the horizon and forward-thinking businesses are shifting their development focus to arguably the most significant change since the invention of the printed circuit board.
