Bringing development of BrainChip Akida Neuromorphic models to all using Edge Impulse
Edge Impulse and BrainChip have partnered to bring the power of neuromorphic computing to all developers. Join us for an early look at the capabilities available for the Edge Impulse + BrainChip integration, and learn how to build and deploy efficient BrainChip Akida Neuromorphic models using Edge Impulse platform.

Key Topics:

- The no-code data ingestion, algorithm development, and embedded Akida deployment tools allow for rapid prototyping and validation of Edge ML algorithms with custom data.

- The Akida platform enables energy efficient, low memory, and high performance deployments, compared with traditional CPU and accelerated AI hardware.

- The MetaTF library (via deployment option) will allow for existing projects to be quickly converted to Akida SNN’s (with the above benefits, and low-to-no-code path)
Quantization aware training ensures that model remain accurate after conversion.

- The Edge Impulse Linux CLI and its integration with the Akida runtime allows for rapid performance testing with real world data
