For the second year in a row, Cartesiam has been identified in the « Gartner Hype Cycle 2020 for Semiconductors and Electronic Technologies » in the Edge AI category.

Cartesiam, a B2B software publisher specializing in artificial intelligence embedded in microcontrollers, announces that, for the second year in a row, it has been identified as one of the top vendors in the “Gartner Hype Cycle for Semiconductors and Electronic Technologies, 2020“, in the “Edge AI“ category.

For Gartner Group, manufacturers must quickly invest in this type of “new generation“ technology, an emerging category for which Cartesiam is now an undisputed world leader.

Paris, July 17th 2020 –  Each year, the prestigious Gartner Group publishes its Hype Cycle. This eagerly awaited report makes technology maturity models more accessible and describes the major trends that will have a strong impact on businesses. The latest version focuses on semiconductors and electronic technologies. It places Edge AI as an emerging technology that generates innovation.

This Hype Cycle charts the progress and potential of embedded software and system technologies. The information in the report should be used to select the best tools, software, hardware, messaging, security and communications systems as they become the core building blocks for the Internet of Things

Cartesiam: The only company uniquely dedicated to Edge AI  Software among the major players listed by Gartner Group.

Cartesiam is the only pure software player listed as a vendor among the 5 other companies identified of which arm or STMicroelectronics.  Cartesiam’s very innovative technology, NanoEdge AI Studio, is an Integrated Development Environment launched during Embedded World 2020 on Feb 25th, 2020.

Innovate and improve productivity

For Gartner Group, there is an increasing demand to analyze and interpret data locally with embedded AI/ML. Virtually all major MCU vendors have expanded their toolchain to include compilers, model conversion tools, libraries and application samples (such as object and gesture recognition) to enable embedded AI.

NanoEdge AI Studio is the only Integrated Development Environment capable of generating libraries performing both learning and inference directly on any Cortex M microcontrollers.

Cartesiam has developed NanoEdge AI Studio, an intuitive software tool that allows system designers using Arm-based low-power microcontrollers to quickly, easily, and inexpensively integrate machine-learning algorithms directly into a broad range of applications including connected devices, household appliances, and industrial machines. The software enables on-device learning of a nominal behavior and detection of any variation of this behavior, even in a complex environment. This capability makes the solution particularly well suited for anomaly detection in predictive maintenance, anti-fraud detection and security markets.

An essential condition to the success of IoT

“Being identified in the Gartner Hype Cycle 2019 and 2020 as one of the top vendors for the Edge AI technology is a great honor and fantastic recognition for the Cartesiam team. Our technology is the result of several years of research and development where we rewrote, from algebra, all machine learning algorithms and signal processing algorithms so that they could run in a tiny environment such as microcontrollers.” comments Joel Rubino, CEO and co-founder of Cartesiam.

He adds, “We created NanoEdgeAI Studio, a new generation Machine Learning IDE to make our technology widely available to embedded developers so that they easily develop and integrate Machine Learning functions into any object. There is no equivalent offer on the market which explains this recognition by Gartner Group and our rapid international expansion with a variety of innovative clients use cases “.
