Omdia White Paper and Joint Webinar

Explore the future of Generative AI at the edge with Omdia’s independent white paper, commissioned by Ambarella. Principal Analyst for Advanced AI Computing, Alexander Harrowell, offers his insights and Omdia’s data on the significant increase in performance and capabilities that will be brought about by the deployment of Large Language Models and GenAI at the edge—and the market opportunities that presents.

Additionally, watch a joint webinar from Omdia’s Harrowell and Ambarella’s Director of Product for AI/ML, Amit Badlani. They provide added perspective on the trends and technologies for achieving scalable GenAI in edge-endpoint devices and on-premise hardware, such as video security analysis, robotics and industrial applications.

Performance, Power-Efficiency, and Security at the Edge

Cooper provides a flexible, modular developer environment supporting Ambarella’s entire portfolio of AI SoCs, including the following Cooper Foundry software modules:
