What is Google Edge TPU? 

The Edge TPU has been created by Google for boosting up the TensorFlow Lite models. This small ASIC is a $TOPS ASIC and uses power very efficiently. Out of the total 2Watts used, each Watt is consumed for 2 Trillion Operations. TPU can be helpful in many applications like the application for execution of mobile vision models e.g., MobileNet v2. The Edge TPU cuts down the complacency and enhances data privacy. It is the on-device ML processing that cuts down the need for a steady internet connection.
