Imagimob and FotaHub, Inc. partner to accelerate mass deployment and update of tinyML applications

Published

 on

Today, Imagimob, a leading provider of tinyML platforms, and FotaHub, Inc., a leading provider of firmware and AI model over-the-air update technology, announced a partnership where Imagimob’s tinyML platform will be seamlessly integrated with FotaHub’s cloud-based firmware over-the-air update and provisioning service.

This enables developers to use Imagimob AI to create production-ready deep learning tinyML applications, and perform mass deployment and update applications in the field using the FotaHub services. Once an edge ML model is ready for deployment in Imagimob AI, it will be automatically uploaded to a corresponding repository for versioned firmware/ML model updates at FotaHub and become ready for rollout to the end devices. This opens the door for the tinyML world to support continuous learning and integration and deployment of ML models regardless of the targeted microprocessor platform or the physical location of the devices.

The combination of Imagimob/FotaHub technologies provides a very innovative and effective solution to some major challenges that customers are facing today: How to make mass deployment and updates of ML models in the field, how to ease the burden of ML models’ long-term maintenance, and how to address model drift and improve the model’s performance in the field.

Imagimob and FotaHub are pairing the tinyML and OTA convergence dynamics with easy to use tools and a secure deployment infrastructure to drive differentiated solutions that maximize the business value of intelligent endpoints. Both companies’ joint effort will unleash a dramatic decrease of the effort, time and cost to get ML-enabled devices ready and evolve them over the whole product lifetime.

FotaHub allows new features to be added to devices and ensure their optimal operation, even after having proceeded to large scale field deployments of the same. FotaHub also opens the possibility to rapidly respond to defects and security vulnerabilities. Thanks to its impressive variety of dedicated embedded device SDKs, FotaHub is silicon manufacturer-independent and can be used for any kind of microcontroller-based or embedded Linux device. FotaHub particularly allows ML models inside embedded devices to be kept up-to-date, model drift to be addressed and new firmware/ML model versions to be prototyped and rolled out in very short cycles. In addition, FotaHub offers a worldwide unique set of SSL/TLS extensions to support secure delivery of firmware/ML model updates to very small microcontrollers, and thereby helps to bridge the huge gap between the embedded device-side world and the IT/cloud universe.

Imagimob AI is an end-to-end development platform for machine learning on edge devices. It allows developers to go from data collection to deployment on an edge device in minutes. Imagimob AI is used by many customers to build production-ready models for a range of use cases including audio, gesture recognition, human motion, predictive maintenance, material detection and many more.

Imagimob and FotaHub will demonstrate the solution at tinyML EMEA Summit that is held on October 10-12 in Larnaca, Cyprus.

Conservatives are ‘fearmongering’ over assault-style gun ban: public safety minister

Published

 on

OTTAWA — Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino accuses the Conservatives of “whipping up fear” that the Liberal government is outlawing ordinary long guns and hunting rifles.

In an interview, Mendicino says the government only wants to reinforce a regulatory ban on assault-style firearms like the AR-15 by enshrining a definition in legislation, and it is prepared to work with MPs to get it right.

He insists the government has no intention whatsoever of going after everyday long guns and hunting rifles, calling the notion “Conservative fearmongering.”

In May 2020, the Liberal government announced a ban through order-in-council on over 1,500 models and variants of what it considers assault-style firearms, such as the AR-15 and the Ruger Mini-14.

The Liberals recently proposed including an evergreen definition of a prohibited assault-style firearm in gun-control legislation being studied by a House of Commons committee.

The Conservatives claim the government’s amendment amounts to the most significant hunting rifle ban in the history of Canada.

Joly seeks reprimand of Russian ambassador as embassy tweets against LGBTQ community

Published

 on

OTTAWA — Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly has asked her department to summon Russia’s ambassador over social media postings against LGBTQ people.

In recent days, Russia’s embassy in Ottawa has posted on Twitter and Telegram that the West is imposing on Russia’s family values, and arguing that families can only involve a man, a woman and children.

The embassy has posted images of a crossed-out rainbow flag and Orthodox icons of Adam and Eve.

The tweets came as Russia expanded a ban on exposing children to so-called homosexual propaganda, meaning authorities can now prosecute Russians for doing things they argue might entice adults to be gay or transgender.

Joly’s office says the posts amount to “hateful propaganda” that must be called out and “an attack on the Canadian values of acceptance and tolerance.”

If Global Affairs Canada follows Joly’s request, it will be the third time the department has summoned ambassador Oleg Stepanov this year.
