ScaleDown is an Open-Source Neural Network Optimization framework that aims to reduce the difficulty in optimizing and deploying models to TinyML devices. We do this while providing a framework-agnostic API that supports commonly used deep learning frameworks. As new optimization techniques are invented, we study them and add their implementation to our framework so that hobbyists, researchers, and industry practitioners can use them in their projects. Finally, at ScaleDown, we believe in progressing the field by doing research, giving free education, and training budding hardware and software engineers in TinyML. To that end, we conduct study groups and workshops, publish blogs, and are working on two free TinyML books.

This talk will be our first of the study group involving :

  1. Introduction to ScaleDown
  2. Current Popular Frameworks in TinyML
  3. TinyMLOps System
  4. How ScaleDown is helping to bridge the gap
  5. How can you get involved?

Archana works as a Data Product Manager. Her job revolves around creating Data strategy, analysis, and security ecosystem. Apart from work, she loves dabbling in TinyML i.e applying machine learning models to small devices with low power and memory requirements. She is currently running the Scaledown intiative. After work, she loves traveling, and on the weekends can usually find her cycling around this tiny island called Singapore.
