Let’s start with some news from TAINAN, Taiwan, where Himax Technologies, Inc. just announced something really, really cool. Check it out. During CES 2024, they’re gonna unveil their new generation WiseEye AI processor, WE2. And it’s got all sorts of new sensor fusion use cases, covering things like image, video, and audio. Now that is some crazy high-tech stuff.
They’re teamed up with a bunch of heavy hitters in the industry, and it’s gonna be a joint showcase of their WiseEye technology for a range of battery-powered tinyML products and reference designs. I’m talking about smart laptops, smart homes, smart cities, wearable devices, and surveillance. That’s some next-level technology right there.
The demand for AI is just going through the roof, you know? But they’ve come up with a solution to the power requirements and privacy concerns in cloud computing. Their WiseEye AI solution is all about local inferencing tinyML vision AI with ultra-low power, a small form factor, and built-in industrial-grade security. I mean, that’s huge.
Now if that wasn’t enough, they’ve also got this first-generation WiseEye AI processor, the WE1, that’s making a big impact too. It supports the mass production of Dell’s premium notebooks and other endpoint AI applications.
But wait, there’s more. At CES 2024, they’re unveiling the next generation, the WE2 AI processor. And it’s 32 times faster than the WE1, with 40% peak power saving. That’s absolutely incredible. They’ve got a live demonstration lined up with some serious facial mesh analysis. This is groundbreaking, people.
Now here’s where it gets really interesting. The WE2 also supports audio capabilities with keyword spotting for voice control. And it’s all about integrating vision AI to deliver comprehensive sensor fusion capability.
And they’re not stopping there. They’re rolling out a new line of production-ready WiseEye Modules. These are versatile modules that feature an integrated computer vision hardware and software platform. And you won’t believe what they’re showing at CES. Endpoint AI application collaborations with ecosystem partners like Seeed Studio, DESMAN, Murata, and Ganzin. This is the kind of stuff that’s gonna change the game.
So if you’re gonna be in Las Vegas for CES, be sure to stop by and check it out. This is the future people, and it’s happening right now. For more details, you can check out their website.
