In this particular article , I am discusing AI based Ecosystem stm32cube.AI . This includes the quick tour of installation procedure.
In my last article of Embedded Career , I tried to explain the role of Embedded in AI in a layman approach. Here we can have further insight into that.
Why AI is required ?
Recently I came across one query in a forum ” Why we need AI ? What AI can do which human can’t ? ” At a first glance, this seems a naive question. But being a computer professional , we should not forget the value of 0.
When I learned driving using manual gears , I used to ask my trainer about different conditions when a particular gear was required. I was trying to adopt it in a digital fashion . Later I realized that it is more than just following straight rules. After going through training and learning from mistakes, One can manage driving car. However one can’t guarantee a safe journey due to various factors related to person behind the wheel and this leads to road accidents.
AI has capability to make a vehicle driver-less or self-driving or autonomous or robot vehicle. Although human can drive a car but need a specific skill and experience.
What is AI ?
Lets try to understand AI with driver-less car. As you know, the driver action depends mainly on sound , vision and brain. Now one can think of various activities related to these such as speech recognition, object detection , Image capture , Image processing etc at first level where MCU can be used.
So if you are getting started in AI with embedded , You may work on one of the sound or vision related activity.
What is the relationship among AI, ML and DL ?
Machine Learning(ML) means Machine learns itself . It is similar to learning by human based on experiences. In case of machine , this will be based on statistics and will be used for prediction.
Deep Learning(DL) passes a bulk of data through layered structure consists of different algorithms to simulate human brain. This can be used for Voice recognition , Image recognition etc .
AI Ecosystem from Semiconductor Companies
NxP has AI and ML portfolio for Automotive, Industrial and IoT application. I am going to look into ST related ecosystem as our focus is on STM32 cube family.
