Advances in On-device Machine Learning on Android

Abstract
Deep Machine Learning has changed the computing paradigm. Products of today are built with machine intelligence as a central attribute, and consumers are beginning to expect near-human interaction with the appliances they use. Widespread increase in availability of connected ?smart? appliances means that there is an ever-expanding surface area for intelligence in ambient consumer devices. However, much of the Deep Learning revolution has been limited to the cloud because of a number of technical challenges. This presentation aims to provide a short-yet-comprehensive overview of technical challenges involved and Google?s responses to address them.
