Google unwraps its gateway drug: Edge TPU chips for IoT AI code

A Dark Germ

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.
