Experience SPECTRO Running On Congatec’s AI Starter Kit At Embedded World 2020

Demonstrations of joint efforts to bring AI driven machine vision to CPU environments to be on display – a Europe first

FEB, 24, 2020 – Kyoto, Japan – HACARUS, the leading provider of lightweight and explainable AI, is pleased to announce that SPECTRO, its flagship product for visual inspections, will be demonstrated in congatec’s booth during Embedded World, held between Feb 25th-27th in Nuremberg, Germany.

“One of SPECTRO’s core strengths is the ability to run complex AI computer vision applications in a non-GPU environment – this saves our customers both energy and time – and I am excited to, for the first time in Europe, demonstrate this market leading capability on congatec’s hardware” said Kenshin Fujiwara, CEO and Founder of HACARUS.

The AI Development Kit allows developers to directly evaluate the advantages of SPECTRO’s Sparse Modelling based AI. The kit integrates an AI system based on the highly scalable and powerful congatec Qseven modules with Intel ‘Apollo Lake’ processors.

Thanks to sparse modeling it is possible to perform AI training tasks on the edge in addition to inference algorithms. This opens up completely new application areas for machine learning.
