"Edge AI is one of the biggest trends in chip technology. ARM is expanding its efforts in the field with two new chip designs. The first is a Cortex-M55 which is paired with Ethos-U55, a neural processing unit meant for more demanding use cases. The dedicated NPU can offer up to 32x improvement in machine learning processing compared to the base Cortex-M55, and a total of 480x better processing compared to the previous generations of Cortex-M chips." – Anish Khajuria
- A big benefit to speed when it comes to handling the requests and small calculations as AI chip functions better than CPU in arithmetic problems.
- It can solve privacy and security issues as you no longer have to do the routine AI processes like sending and receiving data to a cloud server.
- Battery consumption may also reduce as there will be less CPU usage.
