The future of machine learning is tiny and bright. Edge impulse makes it easy to onboard learners and helps them get started with embedded ML
Prof. Vijay Janapa Reddi
Harvard University
Edge Impulse makes it incredibly easy to get started with machine learning and AI. I especially appreciate their commitment to engaging folks in industry, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, students, educators, researchers, and the like. Making their system accessible for the masses is what really impresses me the most about them.
