In this era of intelligent cloud and intelligent edge, developers will need to write applications for a range of connected devices. The Azure IoT Edge runtime makes it easy to create applications from cloud to edge, leveraging advanced AI services. Today we are announcing the public preview of a vision AI developer kit—the newest addition in the Microsoft Azure IoT Starter kit family—for IoT solution makers to easily deploy AI models built using Azure Machine Learning and Azure IoT Edge.
The device uses the Qualcomm Visual Intelligence Platform for hardware acceleration of the AI model to deliver superior inferencing performance. Customers can use the device to create new solutions for a variety of scenarios, from industrial safety, retail, home and enterprise security cameras, smart home devices and more.
Start with the Azure Notebook for a reference model. Link coming soon.
This is the GitHub repo with details for you to get started on your custom version of the AI Camera.
