Seeing the need for assistance for hardware startups to realize success, Greg began Hardware Massive, which is the top for Hardware Startup Innovation, also HardwareCon, the Bay Area’s premier hardware invention conference. Their assignments are to succeed through networking, events, schooling, and providing access to resources.
You’re probably thinking right now, “I ever read about is the way AI, ML, blockchain, and XR are ready to revolutionize the entire world ” and that’s Precisely the point. There are some amazing software technologies coming out, but this”new” program has hardware in its DNA. Until recently, smart technologies have largely been restricted by their access factors: computers, tablet computers, smartphones, etc.. Going forward, hardware inventions will get precious and integral as the port to get tomorrow’s applications. Hardware will capture the data and will be leveraged because the outputs to interact.
Since the ecosystem of computation devices, connection, and information evolve, the platforms, tools and systems are naturally finding more synergy and Reducing the barriers of integration. The line between What’s a hardware or software product will continue to blur. The sensor technology are microphones and cameras. If a camera is, there is a chance there’s an AI stack behind it, with automobiles being the most notable example. On microphone/speaker side, Google Home the Smart Home urges Amazon Echo, and others are omnipresent and obvious.
The barriers are as well Even though the future is apparent. Robustness processing power, generalization and cost are all tradeoffs future hardware products will have to equilibrium. Contrary to the cloud along with other services software enjoys, each hardware item will have onboard connectivity tech, sensors, processing, and other requirements that all make their way. Will the market accept the price, although sure that a GPU can be thrown into the BOM? So real-time processing of pictures and other data could be expensive as 25, high performance computing in the border is in its nascent stages.
At Precisely the Same time, specific tools are being developed to improve this integration. We are seeing a great deal of edge computing such as the Jetson line and the Edge TPUs of Google of NVIDIA. Since it has broad support for hardware installation tensorFlow is probably the most common AI framework. ROS remains popular despite being a mess of mismatched and complicated software, and ports have been done by people to OpenAI’s Gym environments.
Invention is a beast. It requires money, lots of cash. It takes a while, a great team, and implementation in over twenty separate domain names, many of which tend to be overlooked until it’s too late (certificates anyone?!) . However, I’ve got some good news. Hardware is back and it is about to get really exciting.

Hardware’s future is bright and full of data that is happiness-inducing.
Hardware’s beauty empowered AI/ML is that it not only spans the boundary between the physical and virtual, but also between digital and analog. It’s particularly beneficial dealing with its messy data and when interacting with the world. The next generation of AI hardware startups will require all that cluttered analog information and transform it into productive and executable knowledge that provide encounters all of the way.
Greg Fisher is about hardware creation. As founder/CEO of Berkeley Sourcing Group, Greg has spent the past 13 years working with over 1000 hardware startups to develop and manufacture innovative products. Living in China one third of that moment , he worked with hardware startups and factories to help qualify and select improve their designs for fabricating factories, handle mill discussions and connections, and create and implement quality control procedures. With this background, Greg has a unique view and immense passion for what scale their operations and it can take for hardware startups to build the right base.
