In recent years, edge AI technology has rapidly advanced, opening new possibilities in various fields. Many individuals have also experienced an increase in opportunities to interact with AI, and within this context, I believe that many have come to appreciate the challenges of building AI solutions from scratch.

Renesas provides pre-trained "AI Applications" (hereinafter referred to as AI apps) that closely align with practical AI applications, and these are available free of charge for commercial use. Furthermore, utilizing these AI apps can significantly reduce the man-hours required for AI development. These AI apps can be easily modified and built using the AI Software Development Kit (AI SDK) software environment designed for the Evaluation Board Kit.

Please refer to the following blog for information about the concept of AI apps:

In this blog, I will select and introduce three AI apps from the newly added ones.
