Google’s Edge TPU Machine Learning Chip Helps In Automating Quality Control For IoT Applications

  The pioneer in the internet-related services and products: Google has unveiled a new tensor processing unit (TPU) called Edge TPU at the Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco. The novel chip is designed to run TensorFlow Lite machine learning models on the Internet of Things-based (IoT-based) devices.     Two years ago, Google launched its TPU, a specialized chip that performs simplified tasks of artificial intelligence (AI). However, the newly-launched Edge TPU is carefully designed to carry out the so-called “inference tasks”, which is the part of machine…
