“TensorFlow Lite will take advantage of the new neural network API to use silicon-specific accelerators, and over time we expect to see digital processing chips purpose-built for neural network inference and training,” Google said in a post.

The tech giant’s maker added that TensorFlow Lite’s new capabilities will improve next-generation visual search, on-device speech processing, and augmented reality.

For this reason, Google said that the new TensorLite Flow framework will make next-generation mobile hardware more advanced. Over the past few years, application developers have required massive amounts of computing power just to create advanced machine learning applications.

Now that the new TensorFlow Lite is widely adopted, application experts should have easier machine learning workflows.

Other details of TensorFlow Lite

from the official TensorFlow website explained that the new AI framework offers various programs that app developers can use to improve their skills. These include in particular the following:

  • Basic Machine Learning with TensorFlow (For Beginners)
  • TensorFlow for JavaScript Development (For Beginners)
  • Theoretical and advanced machine learning with TensorFlow (intermediate and expert)

In addition to this, the new TensorFlow Lite also offers pre-trained models such as the following:

  • Object detection (features capable of detecting multiple objects contained in boxes)
  • Image classification (features for identifying animals, plants, places, people and other objects)
  • Gesture recognition (features for identifying user gestures through webcams)

Meanwhile, the new Google Nest Camera Alexa support feature is expected to arrive on new models.

On the other hand, the new Google Web3 team should help companies build their own Web3 systems.
