Thanks to a proposal for $258 million in incentives, Democratic Gov. Janet Mills announced Thursday she's giving her support to a 145-mile transmission line that would supply hydropower from Canada to electricity consumers in Massachusetts.
the Ultra-Low Power and Ultra-Fast Perception Appliances™. The vast majority of camera sensors are frame-based. AI engineers pair these cameras with convolutional neural networks to achieve perception solutions that can identify and classify objects such as people and vehicles. This combination requires extremely expensive and power hungry CPUs/GPUs while yielding slow response times – unacceptable for edge intelligence. The Kelzal event-based vision devices combined with third generation neural networks offers fast low power perception – well suited for mobile robots and surveillance applications in remote locations. The company is backed by $3 million of seed financing led by Motus Ventures.
