Battle of Edge AI — Nvidia vs Google vs Intel

Edge AI is still new and many people are not sure which hardware platforms to choose for their projects. Today, we will compare a few of leading and emerging platforms.

Nvidia has dominated AI chip with its GPUs since the boom of deep learning starting in 2012. Although they were power hungry, noisy and expensive (blame Bitcoin gold rush), there wasn’t other alternative and we had to tolerate with them. About 3 years ago, Google announced they have designed Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) to accelerate deep learning inference speed in datacenters. That…
