Aizip Announces TinyML Models and Service
03/30/2021

Saratoga, CA, March 30, 2021 – Aizip, Inc., a Silicon Valley startup company providing powerful tiny artificial intelligence (AI) models for the Internet of Things (IoT), or the so-called AIoT, announced today the availability of its broad portfolio of TinyML models.

Leveraging its automated design tools and its leading technical expertise, Aizip has developed models for three series of applications,

  • Aizip Intelligent Vision (AIV): AIV offers comprehensive deep neural networks (DNN) for image/video applications, such as classification, face identification, and object detection;

  • Aizip Intelligent Audio (AIA): AIA includes a wide range of AI models for audio-related applications, such as key words spotting, and speaker identification/verification; and

  • Aizip Intelligent Time-Series (AIT): AIT provides TinyML for numerous applications with time-series-based datasets, such as ECG, EEG, and inertial measurement.

Building small-size AI models for low-power MCUs while maintaining high accuracy and low latency has been a major challenge for the AI community. Aizip has made significant progress in this direction through its extreme quantization technology and its toolsets. Mixed precision has been widely used in the AIV, AIA, and AIT models, and binary neural networks (BNN) are used in some of the situations. The resulting improvement is significant across the board, and leads to 100x or more improvement in model size and in inference speed for multiple cases.

In parallel with its technical breakthroughs, Aizip has made tremendous traction with its TinyML services. The value in model performance, delivery speed, and ROI is well recognized by Aizip customers. Aizip received its first domestic revenue within three months after the company set up its operation in the Silicon Valley, and generated its first international revenue one month later. So far Aizip has successfully delivered models to its customers in all three categories of the AIV, AIA, and AIT series, according to Dr. Yan Sun, Co-Founder and CEO of Aizip. Dr. Sun, who received his Ph.D. from Stanford University, is a serial entrepreneur and has also held leadership positions in public companies in his career. Aizip has won customers in both the startup and public company space.

The general availability of the Aizip TinyML models should allow its customers to quickly adopt the Aizip's Design as a Service (DaaS) and offer differentiated products on the market. Putting intelligence to the IoT devices would help to make the world a much better place and benefit mankind. Aizip is currently expanding its customer base in the US as well as overseas.
