Convergence of artificial intelligence and edge computing continues maturing with enhanced capabilities reducing need for central cloud data transmission. Rise of Micro AI along-with introduction of Edge Optimized AI frameworks and models are some trends to watch out for which will be key driver for this market said HANetf CIO Hector McNeil. Rise in use cases where localization benefits outweigh scale benefits will drive adoption across industries. Following report examines how device makers are increasingly pushing part inference of an artificial intelligence workflow onto the device itself which keeps data local improves privacy and efficiency.

On the other hand, large models are hard to deploy there because they don’t fit into memory. Several companies are combating this problem. Intel is focused on model compression techniques that shrink large models to fit into smaller form factors while Vecow recently upgraded its edge AI platform with the latest Intel Core processors offering up to 24 cores and 32 threads for robust AI computing. Intel has big plans to make it even easier for customers in the future. The company announced a future Intel Xeon processor with built-in AI acceleration code-named Granite Rapids-D and teased that by the time it’s commercially available some I/Os common in today’s data centers will be obsolete.

Global Edge AI CPU Shipment to Surpass 1,380 million Units

The edge AI processor market is growing at an enormous rate. This growth is largely driven by the Central Processing Unit (CPU) segment, which is forecasted to take up 47% of the market share. 1.38 billion units of edge AI CPUs are expected to be shipped by 2024, up from the 589 million units in 2019. The fact that AI capabilities can now be found in smartphones, smart speakers and wearables is a testament to their widespread adoption. Apple’s A-series Bionic chips, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon series, Samsung’s Exynos and Huawei’s Kirin are some examples of widely used AI-focused CPUs in modern phones. AI-capable devices will soon be everywhere we look. By the end of 2024, it is predicted that 19% of all PCs shipped will have this capability – a figure that could grow to as much as 60% by 2027. The integration of artificial intelligence into personal computing suggests that computers will become smarter over time too. It is also expected that around one billion edge AI chips will be shipped for smartphones alone by 2024.

Although smartphones are projected to drive most of the growth of the edge AI processor market over the next 9 years, other devices like tablets, smart speakers and wearables will also contribute significantly towards it. The Astute Analytica’s report also predicts that proprietary AI-ASSPs (Application-Specific Standard Products), such as those used in Qualcomm Snapdragon and MediaTek APU devices, could gain market share at the expense of GPUs by rising from its current figure of 19% to as high as 28%.

It seems that there may come a time when PCs resemble supersized smartphones more than traditional computers thanks to chip architectures like CPU-GPU-NPU being adopted across all platforms. However, despite these developments, in-CPU acceleration for artificial intelligence has not been taken up as quickly as was originally expected – something which could affect future processor choices in AI applications.

North America Become an Epicenter of Demand and Developments in Edge AI processor Market, Controls 42.6% Market Share

North America is at the forefront of the Edge AI processor market, with strong growth, significant funding and major players such as Nvidia, Intel and Google. Wherein, the US accounted for an 85% revenue share of the North American market in 2023. The US technology sector alone has many leading global companies such as Intel, Qualcomm, Apple and Nvidia. These companies can invest a lot of resources in edge AI processors and have a sound foundation for technological innovation. North America also has a strong start-up ecosystem that encourages the birth of new technologies. In October 2022, Kneron raised $50 million in funding for next-generation AI hardware solutions. Intel announced its collaboration expansion with Synopsys to accelerate software development for accelerated Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), cloud security protocols in August 2023. Moreover, Run:AI launched an MLOps Compute Platform supported by NVIDIA DGX systems in November 2022.

The adoption of IoT, 5G and AI in various industries will continue to drive this trend forward. As enterprises deploy AI technology to make smarter decisions and automate operations, global demand for industrial robots will grow rapidly. To enable localised real-time decision-making at scale across machines and devices – including robots – edge AI computing is vital. The U.S. government is actively supporting research on software-defined compute architectures for edge artificial intelligence (AI) systems. With multi-agency support (DoE + NSF + DoD), the goal of these efforts is to develop innovative hardware designs in the edge AI processor market.

Industrial automation technologies powered by edge AI are set to revolutionize traditional manufacturing processes and supply chains across the US and Canada, enabling more flexible production lines with intelligent feedback loops between robots.
