Embedded computing kit for AI uses Sparse Modeling

congatec and the Japanese AI experts at Hacarus have unveiled an embedded computing kit for Artificial Intelligence (AI) that uses Sparse Modeling technology. Sparse Modeling needs little training data to make highly accurate predictions. This is an advantage for vision-based inspection systems, among others, because the reject rate is naturally lower when manufacturing quality is high.
