Tiny Machine Vision behind the scenes


Tiny devices, like the ones suitable for low-power IoT applications, are now capable of extracting meaningful data from images of the surrounding environment.

Machine vision algorithms, even Deep Learning powered ones, need only a few hundred kilobytes of ROM and RAM to run. But what are the optimizations involved to execute on constrained hardware? What is it possible to do, and how does it really work?

In this session, we will focus on the capabilities that are available for Cortex-M microcontrollers, starting from the user-friendly environment provided by EdgeImpulse to train and deploy Machine Learning models to the OpenMV Cam H7+. We will guide attendees through the process using a straightforward example that illuminates inner workings so that attendees can get a grasp on technologies and frameworks. Attendees will walk away understanding the basic principles and be able to apply them not just to the Cortex-M but beyond.
