  • Output

  • Output

    Through the AI Model compression pipeline of NetsPresso, we complete creating a stand-alone AI model that is compact, light and accurate.

  • Benefit

  • Lighter, faster, and accurate AI models come from NetsPresso.
    NetsPresso is unique as it does not compromise accuracy even with all these advantages. The compressed AI model improved its inference time up to 8 times faster and significantly reduced power consumption compared to the original model. NetsPresso can save 80% or more on product/service development and maintenance costs. 

  • Accuracy

    Nota does not compromise performance while compressing AI models.

  • Fast speed

    Light and fast. Thanks to the effectively improved inference time, you can use AI without interruption.

  • Low cost

    Build the most cost-effective AI model. You can use AI models at affordable prices.

  • Low power

    Can be used on edge devices for a long time through minimized power consumption.

Light but accurate AI, this is Nota’s technological differentiation. Existing model compression techniques must trade off between compression ratio and accuracy. But NetsPresso is different. Maximizing compression while maintaining accuracy is the core of NetsPresso. 

Applications

Classification

Image classification

Nota's compressed image classification model identifies a wide variety of objects including people, animals, plants and equipment.

Face Authentication

Face authentication

Nota's compressed face authentication model can identify and authenticate up to 30,000 people on edge devices. Nota's face authentication system, which results in fast and accurate performance even with diverse lighting settings and personal protective equipment, can be used in various contactless situations including access control, membership authentication, driver recognition, etc.

Object Detection

Object detection

Nota's compressed object detection model detects and locates various objects such as vehicles, people, and equipment on edge devices. Nota's object detection model, which ensures fast and accurate performance regardless of network availability, can be used in intelligent monitoring systems for security surveillance cameras and advanced driver assistance systems to provide contextual information.

Hand Gesture Recognition

Hand gesture recognition

Nota's compressed hand gesture recognition model can discern more than 10 different hand gestures on a miniaturized edge device equipped with a camera. Experience the contactless interface by using Nota's technology that can control smart devices in everyone’s daily lives.
