Five AI Inference Trends for 2022

AI inference has been marching towards the edge at super-fast speeds. Here are five top trends for the sector during 2022.

www.eetasia.com, Jan. 13, 2022 – 

It's an exciting time to be a part of the rapidly growing AI industry, particularly in the field of inference. Once relegated simply to high-end and outrageously expensive computing systems, AI inference has been marching towards the edge at super-fast speeds. Today, customers in a wide range of industries – from medical, industrial, robotics, security, retail and imaging – are either evaluating or actually designing AI inference capabilities into their products and applications.

Fortunately, with the advent of new semiconductor devices developed specifically to accelerate AI workloads, this technology has now advanced to the point where many products have dropped to price points and form factors that make it viable for mainstream markets where AI can be incorporated into a wide range of systems.

As we look to 2022, here are our predicted AI inference trends.

Security, Privacy Concerns

We will continue to see growing privacy concerns as AI is deployed more broadly. Techniques that obscure or protect personal details will expand, as will techniques to secure AI systems. Among them will be the application of root-of-trust technology against cyber-intrusion.

Continued Model Evolution

The industry will shift from models developed five to seven years ago such as MobileNet and ResNet toward new, more powerful and accurate approaches like Yolo-v5 and transformer-based solutions. Continuing research into AI inference models seeks to provide greater accuracy and higher performance. Deployed systems must be designed so that the models can be updated over time to improve their performance and accuracy as new techniques are discovered.

Edge Migration

Edge transition will continue as companies scale applications; economics will push them to offload bandwidth and compute-heavy applications such as computer vision from the cloud-to-edge devices. Customers will increasingly adopt AI acceleration where high accuracy, high throughput and low power on complex models is needed. For example, in the industrial segment, AI could be used to help manage inventories, detect defects or even predict defects before they happen.
