AAEON Partners with Gorilla to Showcase Edge AI Solutions at COMPUTEX Taipei 2019

IVAR?, developed by Gorilla and utilizing the AIOT-AIVD, will be a part of the AAEON showcase at COMPUTEX Taipei 2019.

(Taipei, Taiwan - May 23, 2019) - AAEON, an award winning developer of embedded AI solutions, is partnering with a leading developer of edge AI solutions, Gorilla Technology Group, to showcase the capabilities of edge AI computing. As part of AAEON's series of live demos, the AIOT-AIVD AI Gateway with Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X will feature IVAR™ from Gorilla, an OpenVINO™ optimized facial recognition software.

Dr. Spincer Koh of Gorilla Technology Group recently discussed the technology and partnership between Gorilla and AAEON:

"We at Gorilla Technology Group are very excited to partner with AAEON at this year's COMPUTEX in order to showcase the latest in facial recognition technology and behavior analytics. Both Gorilla and AAEON are looking to expand the applications of the cutting-edge UP Squared AI Vision Development Kit and to advance the work of AI developers into more real-life solutions. Gorilla has been at the forefront of video IoT with our real-time edge AI solution, IVAR™ (Intelligent Video Analytics Recorder). IVAR™ has already delivered on a number of successful real-world scenarios: verifying VIP guests for hospitality and retail, creating watch lists for criminal investigations, and also permitting access to high-security locations.

"In our demonstration together, Gorilla pairs our IVAR™ facial recognition technology with AAEON's leading hardware systems to register staff and apply deep learning analytics to recognize each person as they arrive-by name, title, age, gender and even clothing color. We hope that this collaboration between Gorilla and AAEON is just the beginning in a long line of successful endeavors together. "

The AIOT-AIVD AI Gateway is a compact edge AI system combining the flexible and innovative UP Squared board with the powerful Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X. The UP Squared board pairs support for Intel processors, such as the Intel® Pentium™ N4200 (formerly Apollo Lake), with up to 8 GB of LPDDR4 memory and eMMC storage up to 128 GB. The Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X is a low-power high-performance neural accelerator and VPU capable of speeds up to 105 fps (80 typical). With the UP Squared and Intel® Myriad™ X together, the AIOT-AIVD AI Gateway is one of the fastest and highest performing compact embedded edge AI systems available.

To see our live demonstration of the AIOT-AIVD AI Gateway with IVAR™ from Gorilla, come visit our display at COMPUTEX Taipei 2019, being held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center May 28th through June 1st. AAEON will be at Booth S0703 on the 4th Floor of Hall 2. We look forward to seeing you there.
