    Embedded, tiny, on Phyton :-) - very funny, in MS style.

    @Anatoly: the raspberry pi demo is using Python, just for convenience, but the audio keyword spotting demo is pure C++.

    @CrisLovett: thanks for the answer. I just meant that say use of Intel CPU with embedded neurons would be not bad idea.
    Sequentilal programming with Phyton or even C++ is, I'm afraid, in times slower than impementing FPGA or Neurochips, where
    thousands operations are performed in parallel.
    BTW. This channel9 works in such a manner that I must post twice...

    @Anatoly: oh, sure, many companies are working on hardware optimization of neural networks including Intel.  For large complicated vision models it makes sense to use special hardware including GPU, TPU, NPU, and FPGA, even custom ASICs.  ELL can target some of these hardware optimizations also, when it is provided by the LLVM back end (for example LLVM can already target Qualcomm Hexagon DSP chips).
