In This Issue: User Interface for Chemical Analysis Voler Systems developed an instrument that measures turbidity (cloudiness) of water for industrial water processing. It uses the refractive index of the fluid to measure the volume of minute particles in the water. The user interface provided control for operational, diagnostic, and calibration functions. We provided a [...]

Machine Learning on GPUs and Embedded Devices

Deep nets are becoming pervasive in many desktop and mobile applications. However, running deep nets on small embedded devices remains a challenge. Some include choosing the right implementation on the embedded device (cuDNN, TensorFlow, etc.) and using other tricks that can improve performance (for example: using lower-precision math). Deep learning and more broadly machine learning [...]
