Edge AI and Cloud AI are not mutually exclusive. Rather, they are tied together by a fundamental resource called data. Edge
AI/ML helps manage data that is collected at the edge and in doing so, delivers key cost, user interaction and overall
performance benefits that are critical for success.
The cloud enables large scale data collection and the associated model development environment that improves inference
confidence and performance over the life of the model. Together, NXP and AWS have developed an optimized approach to developing
and deploying an edge AI application with AWS services. Models are built in the cloud and deployed to the edge with NXP’s
applications processors. The result is a dynamic, practical approach that reflects the combined strengths of two industry
leaders, so you can save time and lower engineering costs while developing customer-centric solutions.
Getting started on a cloud-based edge AI project can be intimidating. To help, NXP and AWS have partnered together to create the
NXP + AWS Collaboration Space with guides that help developers become familiar with basic architecture and implementation
Our Experts Guide You Through the Details
The curated guides help you save time and streamline your development effort, making it easy to start using the NXP + AWS
Collaboration Space for product differentiation. Each guide provides a step-by-step introduction to establishing hybrid
computing models for a dedicated application.
The first guide,
Building a Machine Learning Pipeline from Cloud to Edge, is available now. Edge ML may run algorithms without the cloud, but the cloud remains an essential part of the
deployment, because cloud-based resources provide a platform for developing, training, distributing, securing and maintaining
ML models and for managing Edge ML devices.
When Edge ML deployments are supported by a robust, scalable pipeline from the cloud to the edge, cloud resources can grow with
the deployment, expanding as needed to support iterative training, geographical expansion, new product introductions and
ever-evolving security requirements.
Before accessing the guide, make sure you’re logged into NXP.com and your AWS account, so you can cross-reference between the
two and have easy access to software-stack downloads.
