TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers is a port of TensorFlow Lite designed to run machine learning models on microcontrollers and other devices with limited memory.
This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at engineers who wish to write, load and run machine learning models on very small embedded devices.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Install TensorFlow Lite.
- Load machine learning models onto an embedded device to enable it to detect speech, classify images, etc.
- Add AI to hardware devices without relying on network connectivity.
Format of the Course
- Interactive lecture and discussion.
- Lots of exercises and practice.
- Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
