IFA NEXT Startup Days
Idein, a Japanese startup located in Tokyo, was founded in 2015 aiming to handle real-world events with software by integrating recent progress in deep learning and signal processing technologies. To break down the cost barrier, we undertake research and development of acceleration techniques of deep learning inference on low-price devices. Using our technology, we enable the execution of inference at practical speed on popular commodity devices sold on the market such as Raspberry Pi.
We are also developing an IoT platform named Actcast in which users can link various physical events and data to the Web to construct advanced IoT systems combined with deep learning inference on the edge devices. The cost for the systems will be an order of magnitude cheaper than existing cloud-based deep learning inference services.
