In the last decade, Machine Learning techniques have been used in different fields, ranging from finance to healthcare and even marketing. Amongst all these techniques, the ones adopting a Deep Learning approach were revealed to outperform humans in tasks such as object detection, image classification and speech recognition. This thesis introduces the concept of Edge AI: that is the possibility to build learning models capable of making inference locally, without any dependence on expensive servers or cloud services. A first case study we consider is based on the Google AIY Vision Kit, an intelligent camera equipped with a graphic board to optimize Computer Vision algorithms. Then, we test the performances of CORe50, a dataset for continuous object recognition, on embedded systems. The techniques developed in these chapters will be finally used to solve a challenge within the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup 2018, where a mobile car equipped with a camera, sensors and a graphic board must recognize pedestrians and stop before hitting them.
