Eta Compute Launches Machine Learning Platform with Ultra-Low-Power Consumption for Edge Devices

Exhibiting at Arm TechCon, the company will demonstrate the latest in artificial intelligence including autonomous learning.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eta Compute Inc., a company dedicated to delivering machine learning to mobile and edge devices using its revolutionary new platform, today announced the availability of its latest machine learning SoC that includes autonomous learning. Named TENSAI®, this ground-breaking product performs image classification, keyword spotting, and wakeup word detection that redefines the standard for ultra-low power embedded solutions.

“I know machine learning on tiny, cheap battery powered chips is coming,” said Pete Warden, Google Technical Lead of TensorFlow. This will open the door for some amazing new applications.”Eta Compute TENSAI® Chip

The TENSAI chip includes the third generation of Eta Compute’s delay insensitive logic which enables products to reliably operate at the lowest supply voltage resulting in the lowest power consumption.

Other unique features of this SoC include:

Eta Compute’s own kernel for spiking neural network (SNN) and CNN minimizes operations and lowers power consumption
Autonomous Learning of speech, image, and other data where classification occurs on the data without labels enabling advances in the broad area of anomaly detection on systems where failure modes are unknown or data difficult to obtain
Image classification application consuming only 0.4mJ per picture, a 30X power reduction over recently published results
Always-on wakeup word application which consumes 500uA during classification or 50uA during silence meeting strict requirements for wearables and battery-operated consumer electronics

“Our patented hardware architecture (DIAL™) is combined with our fully customizable algorithms based on both CNN and SNNs to perform machine learning inferencing in hundreds of microwatts,” said Nara Srinivasa Ph.D., CTO of Eta Compute. “These are being sampled to customers who are integrating them into products such as smart speakers and object detection platforms to deliver machine intelligence to the network edge.”

The processor is trainable using the popular TensorFlow® or Caffe® software and Eta Compute’s custom kernel further optimizes the trained model. TENSAI uses a tightly integrated DSP processor and microcontroller architecture for a significant reduction in power for embedded machine intelligence. This solution can support a wide range of applications in audio, video, and signal processing where power is a severe constraint as in mobile devices, wearable, industrial sensing, and camera markets.

Furthermore, for real world scenarios for which readily labeled data is scarce or unavailable, our autonomous learning algorithms can extract actionable intelligence despite this limitation. This makes Eta Compute’s solution much broader in scope including intelligence for devices that harvest energy in remote environments.

Eta Compute SoC with machine learning is sampling now with mass production expected in Q1 of 2019.

About Eta Compute
Eta Compute was founded in 2015 with the vision that the proliferation of intelligent devices at the network edge will make daily life safer, healthier, comfortable and more convenient without sacrificing privacy and security. Its recently launched DIAL™ technology is the world’s lowest power embedded compute platform and is a natural architecture to support event driven neuromorphic learning and machine intelligence for portable devices.

Tyres On The Drive Offers Customers Dynamic Appointment Self-Scheduling with Descartes

LONDON, Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq: DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announces that UK-based mobile tire-fitting company, Tyres on the Drive, now offers delivery appointment self-scheduling online using Descartes’ dynamic appointment scheduling and route planning solution. The offering provides a differentiated customer experience while improving the productivity of Tyres On The Drive’s fleet and technicians.

“To enhance our customers’ experience, we wanted to offer them the ability to self-select their appointment, but base options presented on specific business parameters that enable us to operate as efficiently as possible,” said Ray Fernandez, CEO at Tyres On The Drive. “We deployed Descartes’ solution because of its proven ability to interact with the customer during the buying process to provide optimised, real-time appointment booking.”

Tyres On The Drive offers consumers a mobile tire fitting service at a location and time of their choice, with appointments available seven days a week from 8am – 8pm. The company employs approximately 100 technicians and operates a fleet of 70 vans across the UK, who will carry out approximately 150,000 jobs in 2018. Descartes has helped to replace the company’s largely manual, contact centre based appointment booking process.

As part of Descartes’ Routing, Mobile, and Telematics suite, the appointment booking solution deployed at Tyres On The Drive determines the best delivery options to present to a customer during the buying process. These options are dynamically derived and economically scored based upon multiple variables, such as job location; proximity to other scheduled jobs; estimated job time; order size; and road speeds and other restrictions. The solution’s flexibility allows distributors, retailers and other delivery organisations to offer different appointment window sizes and value-added services. These important features help drive revenue for Tyres On The Drive by providing appointment flexibility and adoption of incremental services.

“Tyres On The Drive is an innovative business and an excellent example of how using real-time optimized appointment booking can help turn the customer experience into a competitive advantage,” said Pól Sweeney, UK Vice President of Sales at Descartes. “We’re able to help our users not only do a better job serving their customers with our solution, but also run their delivery operations more efficiently at the same time.”

About Tyres On The Drive
Tyres On The Drive is a mobile tyre-fitting company that allows customers to book online or over the phone and have new tyres fitted, or punctures repaired, at any suitable location of their choice, whether that’s at home, at work or even at the gym! We’re proud to be different: we’ve long believed that the purchase and fitting of tyres doesn’t have to be a drawn out, inconvenient and laborious process where the customer has to fit around the static hours of a garage. Our mobile fitting units make sitting around in a cold garage a thing of the past. Now you can be at home or at a work getting on with the things that are important to you, while our expert technicians deal with your tyre fitting. While tyres are our passion, we know that they’re not necessarily yours, so we try at every stage to remove any pain and replace it with a friendly and knowledgeable service that we know our customers love.
