The great advantage of the new module embodying this capability is that it has its own processor and built-in memory, and it can use AI technologies such as Microsoft azure to analyze video in an independent system, which is faster, simpler and safer than the existing methods.
We are committed to how to distribute AI computing across the system, taking into account cost and efficiency, said Hideki somemiya, general manager of Sony systems solutions
