Axell and Blaize collaborate
Blaize announced that it is collaborating with Axell Corporation and ax Inc. to integrate Blaize Graph Streaming Processor (GSP) technology solutions into the Axell ailia AI (artificial intelligence) framework. The companies state that the result will be "extremely efficient commercially available (2H 2020) AI solutions aimed at the automotive, retail, and gaming industries worldwide."
“Blaize and Axell have worked closely throughout a six-month test and qualification program that proved flexible programming and superior performance of the Blaize GSP architecture in running the Axell neural networks at the heart of the ailia framework,” said Kazuki Kyakuno, a Technical Board Member of Axell. “Axell plans to go forward with end solutions that utilize the GSP breakthrough processing architecture, optimized for AI inferencing at the extreme edge to the core.”
Designed for executing neural networks at the edge, Blaize says its GSP-based systems provide an efficient way to run standard and customized neural nets in vehicles, retail stores, and electronic game devices. Blaize says that its GSP delivers a 10-100x systems efficiency advantage over legacy AI hardware solutions, coupled with a single scalable architecture across a range of AI use cases.
Axell ailia SDK is a cross-platform high speed inference SDK. The ailia SDK provides a consistent C++ API on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. It supports Unity, Python, and JNI for efficient AI implementation. The ailia SDK is designed to make great use of the GPU to serve accelerated computing.
