Moving intelligence around

Introduction Artificial intelligence has reached the attention of mass media and technologies supporting it – Neural Networks (NN) – are being deployed in several contexts affecting end users, e.g. in their smart phones. If a NN is used locally, it is possible to use existing digital representation of NNs (e.g., NNEF, ONNX). However, these format […]
