NXP announced, at its NXP Connects event in Silicon Valley this week, deeper investments in edge computing machine
learning (ML) and AI solutions. The announcements are part of NXP’s continued leadership in artificial
intelligence (AI), machine learning and delivering purpose-built solutions and connections that are critical to
future IoT ecosystems.
NXP’s new machine learning
NXP has focused on developing tools and solutions that are showing the world that most machine learning models can be
run on the edge with the existing CPUs. One of NXP’s many tools includes its new, comprehensive machine
learning (ML) environment for building innovative applications with cutting-edge capabilities that enable
fast-growing machine learning use-cases in vision, voice and anomaly detections.
NXP announced it has extended its investment in its trusted Kinetis family of MCUS to support its 25,000 IoT and
security customers. The announcement underscores the company’s commitment to focusing the majority of
its R&D investments in building solutions that can help developers overcome the challenges stifling IoT
No other company in the world has invested as much in advancing IoT security, connectivity and performance. In
its keynote address, NXP outlined how their latest announcements are part of its ongoing strategy to advance IoT
ecosystems by delivering easy-to-use machine learning and edge computing platforms, bringing mobile security to IoT
devices and addressing IoT fragmentation via low-cost, low-power platforms.
Steve Owen, EVP Sales and Marketing with NXP explained, “At NXP, we are combining our unparalleled technology
expertise with our R&D investments that are focused on building solutions to address the common challenges that
are holding back IOT developers from recognizing the economic value promised by IoT.”
Executives from Google Android Things, Google Cloud IoT and BabbleLabs also discussed the deep learning revolution,
the evolution of IoT operating systems and cloud to the edge development opportunities during the keynote address.
