Advantages of DeLTA-Lite
Using DeLTA-Lite you can build an embedded deep learning model* by preparing just 2 things. *The prediction system.
Labelled training data. (we can support you in creating the data with our data preparation service)
Devices that deep learning models run on
DeLTA-Lite includes cutting-edge technologies, methods, and tool-chains developed by LeapMind. You can use them without programming. All you need is your ‘training data’ and ‘hardware’ to build embedded deep learning models.
The DeLTA-Lite Process
- Design of the deep learning model
- Training the model
- Compressing the model
- Converting to C-code
- Compiling for hardware
Until now it took a lot of time and money just to conduct field studies on the application of deep learning, letalone integrating it into the company’s operations. By using DeLTa-Lite, the time and cost is drastically reduced, making it easy to experiment with and integrate deep learning technology.
How to use DeLTA-Lite
You can build a model through the web browser interface in just 4 easy steps.
1Choose an application type.
2Upload your training data.
3Start the training.
4Download your trained model.
After selecting the tasks and uploading your training data it takes about 1 day* until your model is ready to be downloaded - just by following those simple steps. *The exact time depends on the task and the amount of training data
1. Food industry
Deep Learning models can be trained to identify contaminations and anomalies based on images as part of the food production line. This can significantly reduce workload and maintenance cost imposed by manual inspection and operation of traditional sensors.
2. Automotive industry
Based on cameras installed in a car, deep learning models can be trained to identify situations both inside and outside the vehicle, providing the driver with accessibility, functionality, and security features.
3. Construction industry
The task of identifying anomalies in construction or factories had previously been done manually by workers. By using deep learning it becomes possible to automate those processes based on images taken by drones or fix-point cameras.
Using deep learning to classify and analyze online images , new market trends can be identified. This can become an incentive for new projects and products, as well as marketing strategies.
Obstacles for building embedded deep learning models
In most cases, creating embedded deep learning models takes a long time.
- Project planning
- Investigating available approaches
- Collecting data
- Data annotation / labelling
training and fine tuning
- Design of deep learning models
- Model implementation
- Training the model
- Fine tuning hyperparameters
- Model compression
- Verification and testing
Those are the basic steps for building an embedded deep learning model which can easily take more than 3 month.
To build an embedded deep learning model the following expert knowledge is essential
Expert knowledge on deep learning is necessary for good model design.
High level engineering is required for the implementation and training of high quality models.
A high level of research and development is essential to compressing a model without decreasing its performance.
Expert level knowledge of hardware design is necessary for embedding a model into devices like FPGAs.
Those expertise hardware and software techniques/skills/knowledges are required to make/build embedded deep learning models and deploying it/those onto a hardware.
