Making Smart Devices Even Smarter – Microsoft’s Custom Vision Service Can Run On IoT Devices
Microsoft has been quite vocal at this year’s Build conference. They have talked a lot about artificial intelligence tools in our offices and in our homes.
One of the those AI skills is computer vision, which allows tiny cameras to recognize objects and then, armed with that knowledge, to take relevant action—for example, if a camera on a drone sees and recognizes a broken drainage pipe, it sends a fix-it ticket to the maintenance server.
Qualcomm and Microsoft said that they will get together to design a developer kit which will carry the software and hardware required to construct small, effective devices. These devices will dominate Microsoft’s cloud-based machine learning service. Qualcomm is responsible for providing the chips to assist millions of computations required for these computer vision tasks.
Microsoft also said in a statement that its Custom Vision computer vision service can run on IoT devices with cameras which will let them recognize objects. They can act on this without needing to connect to the cloud.
