Cognitive Services on NXP i.MX8 platform running Windows 10 IoT Core 64-Bit with connectivity to the Azure cloud


Add machine learning capabilities on NXP i.MX8 microprocessors with Microsoft Cloud solutions:

  • Cognitive Services are a set of machine learning algorithms developed by Microsoft to create AI without requiring machine-learning expertise. All it takes is an API (Application Programming Interface) call to embed the ability to see, hear, speak, search, understand, and accelerate decision-making into apps
  • Extensive machine learning add-on options for vision, speech recognition, language translation, etc… on microcontroller devices
  • Use Windows 10 IoT Core 64-Bit on the i.MX8 platform with connectivity to the Microsoft Azure Cloud
  • Avnet Silica is a Microsoft CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) for industrial applications

Microsoft Cognitive Services capabilities

Deploy Cognitive Services anywhere from the cloud to the edge with containers without having expertise in machine learning programming. Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs are grouped into different categories to achieve human parity in computer vision, speech and language:

  • Vision: analyze images and videos for content and other useful information
  • Speech: tools to improve speech recognition and identify the speaker
  • Language: understanding sentences and intent rather than just words
  • Knowledge: tracks down research from scientific journals for you
  • Search: applies machine learning to web searches
