TinyML is the latest from the world of deep learning and artificial intelligence. It brings the capability to run machine learning models in a ubiquitous microcontroller – the smallest electronic chip present almost everywhere.

Microcontrollers are the brain for many devices that we use almost every day. From a TV remote controller to the elevator to the smart speaker, they are everywhere. Multiple sensors that can emit telemetry data are connected to a microcontroller. Actuators, such as switches and motors, are also connected to the same microcontroller. It carries embedded code that can acquire the data from sensors and control the actuators.

The rise of TinyML marks a significant shift in how end-users consume AI. Vendors from the hardware and software industries are collaborating to bring AI models to the microcontrollers.
