Chipmakers NVIDA and ARM have announced a partnership, whereby ARM will implement the open source NIVDIA Deep Learning Accelerator (NVDLA) code in its Project Trillium platform for chips. The Trillium chips are to be used in next generation mobile and IoT devices, and the goal is to be able to not just collect and track data, but to make smart decisions from them. It makes sense for the leaders in machine learning and IoT to be teaming up – we would expect to see leading IoT player Intel to be announcing similar tie-ups or offerings. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, IoT is estimated to have a total potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025. At the top end, that level of value, including the consumer surplus, would be equivalent to about 11% of the world economy.
