Artificial intelligence is proliferating into numerous edge applications and disrupting numerous industries. Clearly this represents a huge opportunity for technology suppliers. But it can be difficult to discern exactly what form this opportunity will take. For example, will edge devices perform AI computation locally, or in the cloud? Will edge devices use separate chips for AI, or will AI processing engines be incorporated into the main processor SoCs already used in these devices? In this talk, we answer these questions by presenting and explaining our market data and forecasts for AI processors in mobile phones, drones, smart home devices and personal robots. We explain why there is a strong trend towards executing AI computation at the edge, and quantify the opportunity for separate processor chips and on-chip accelerators that address visual and audio AI tasks.
