SAN DIEGO and HSINCHU--23 Feb--PRNewswire/InfoQuest
Along with Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and others, MediaTek supports open and mainstream frameworks to drive AI innovation
MediaTek today announced that it has joined the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) to drive AI innovation and support the evolution of its edge AI platform.

ONNX was created and launched by Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft to establish an interoperability standard for transferring deep learning models between frameworks. The result is an open ecosystem that allows AI developers to mix and match the tools and frameworks they need during any stage of a project.

Existing involvement in the Android Neural Network (ANN), combined with its new support of and participation in ONNX, is part of MediaTek's strategic imperative to continue integrating AI across its technology portfolio.

MediaTek is also building upon its recent announcement to enable AI edge computing with the launch of its new NeuroPilot AI platform, which encompasses both hardware and software. MediaTek NeuroPilot includes an SDK and an AI processing unit to support the development of AI enabled mobile and smart home devices as well as autos.

"A key to developing AI applications and capabilities lies within an open ecosystem where shared research and interoperability are the true enablers of innovation," said Jerry Yu, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the Home Entertainment Business Group, MediaTek. "In an effort to evolve our own AI platform and to ensure that interoperability and choice is preserved when developing with MediaTek NeuroPilot, it made sense to widen our support for open AI frameworks by joining the Open Neural Network Exchange."

The MediaTek NeuroPilot AI platform already supports mainstream AI frameworks, as it operates in concert with existing neural processing SDKs including Google TensorFlow, Caffe, Amazon MXNet, Sony NNabla, and more. At the OS level, MediaTek offers support for both Android and Linux.
