Hope Pi are getting a kick back for that base board design...
Google has designed a low-power version of its homegrown AI math accelerator, dubbed it the Edge TPU, and promised to ship it to developers by October. Announced at Google Next 2018 today, the ASIC is a cutdown edition of its Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) family of in-house-designed coprocessors. TPUs are used internally at …

Is that so?
I understand why Google wants own the IoT (global domination of all things that tech can touch, and more) but what makes them think that people want the internet on everything?
If given a choice, I will always want my appliances simple. I don't want a toaster that talks back or reports to Google that I burnt the whole wheat again.

Don't see the point of ML on an edge device.
Normally an edge device is a very low power simple functioning device.
It the device is running Linux then it is IT.
IoT runs from micro-controllers 'MCU' that are low power and don't require high CPU use.
Google is like all IT companies trying to reach into IoT land.
They forget IoT talks to IT devices, these do the heavy work of TCP/IP MQTT & security when talking to the back-end system.
We have a boarder like BREXIT!
I wish people would understand the sales pitches are just Google pushing small folk out of the IoT business. Bullies in fact like all corporations.
