The future of hardware is full and bright of accessible, processed, happiness-inducing data.

At Precisely the Same time tools have been developed to enhance this integration.   We’re seeing a lot of edge computing such as Google’s Edge TPUs and NVIDIA line. Since it has extensive support for hardware installation, tensorFlow is probably the most common AI framework. ROS is despite being a jumble of complex and mismatched applications fairly popular, and people have done ports to the fitness center environments of OpenAI.

Since the ecosystem of devices, computation, connection, and data evolve, the programs, tools and systems are naturally finding more synergy and lowering the barriers of integration.    The line between What’s a hardware or software product will continue to blur.   The detector technologies are cameras and microphones. If there is a camera, there is a Fantastic chance there is an AI pile behind it, together with automobiles being the most prominent example.    On the microphone/speaker side, others, Google Home, and the Smart Home urges Amazon Echo are obvious and ubiquitous.
Greg Fisher is about hardware creation. Living in China one third of that time, he worked with hardware startups and factories to help qualify and select improve their layouts for manufacturing factories, manage connections and mill discussions, and develop and implement quality management processes. With this history, Greg has immense enthusiasm and a unique view for what it can take to build the base and scale their operations.

The barriers are well Even though the future is clear.   Generalization, robustness, processing power and cost are tradeoffs hardware products that are future will need to balance.   Unlike the scalable and on-demand cloud and other services applications enjoys, each hardware product will have onboard sensors processing , connectivity technology, and other requirements that all make their way into the product cost.   Can the price be accepted by the market, although sure a GPU can be thrown in the BOM?   High performance computing in the edge is in its nascent stages so processing of other data and pictures can be expensive.
Hardware Invention is a Creature.   It requires lots of cash, money.   It takes a while, a fantastic team, and implementation in over twenty separate domain names, many of which tend to be overlooked until it is too late (certificates anyone?!) .   However, I have got some good news. Hardware is back and it is going to get very exciting.

Seeing the need for assistance for hardware startups to realize success, Greg started Hardware Massive, which is the top Global Community/Platform for Hardware Startup Innovation, also HardwareCon, the Bay Area’s hardware innovation convention. Their missions are to succeed through networking, events, schooling, and providing access to resources.

You are probably thinking right now,  “I ever read about is blockchain, ML, AI, and XR are ready to reevaluate the world” and that’s exactly the point.   There are some amazing software technologies coming out, but this”new” software has hardware in its own DNA.   Until lately, smart technology have largely been restricted by their access factors: computers, tablets, smartphones, etc..   Going forward, hardware inventions will become increasingly integral and valuable as the interface for the software of tomorrow. Hardware will capture the data and will be leveraged as the sparks to interact with the world as robots, drones, and many other IoT devices which are being developed.

The Attractiveness of hardware enabled AI/ML is that it not only crosses the boundary between virtual and the physical, but between analog and digital.   It’s especially valuable when interacting with the world and coping with its data that is messy.   The next generation of AI hardware startups will require all that cluttered analog data and change it into knowledge that offer encounters all the way.
