15:13:15	 From  Justin Lutz : are current edge detection mcu's capable of doing object detection?  I thought we were limited to just image classification?
15:14:02	 From  Aditya Mangalampalli (Edge Impulse) : Yup, Edge Impulse boards are fully functional for both Image Classification and Object Detection among lots of other neural network architectures!
15:14:59	 From  Justin Lutz : ok, thanks!
15:15:08	 From  Andrew Siemer (Edge Impulse) : We have some great examples for object detection using the Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano.
15:16:16	 From  Justin Lutz : yes, I know we can do that on the SBCs, didn't think MCUs were powerful enough for that yet
15:17:08	 From  Aditya Mangalampalli (Edge Impulse) : Yup, with Edge Impulse’s custom compiler, MCUs are now able to run the same things as some SBCs are!
15:17:35	 From  Justin Lutz : wow, awesome, can't wait to try it out
15:17:59	 From  Noel Putaansuu : Will it work with the esp32?
15:19:14	 From  Zin : We are looking at providing object detection for MCU class processor with something like an Cortex-M7 being the first target
15:19:53	 From  Bukasa Tshilombo   to   Stephane Boucher(Direct Message) : Thanks. I got in. Bukasa
15:20:36	 From  Vishnu B Raj : Can we use our python codes in edge impulse and optimize it for spresence?
15:20:37	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Are there label annotation tools in the Edge Impulse interface?
15:21:09	 From  Aditya Mangalampalli (Edge Impulse) : There are label annotation tools in the Edge Impulse Studio, that is correct.
15:21:31	 From  Zin : We are seeing MCUs add more and more sophistication (e.g. NN accelerators), narrowing the gap between MCU and SBC, of which we’ll be able to leverage
15:22:10	 From  Justin Lutz : @Zin, makes sense thanks
15:25:23	 From  Muhamed Fauzi Bin Abbas : Where can we find the C-library for inferencing?
15:25:28	 From  Zin : @Vishnu B Raj you can define a more detailed custom NN architecture in python using “expert mode” on the training page
15:25:59	 From  Vishnu B Raj : @ZIn Cool Thanks
15:26:01	 From  Justin Lutz : I've taken the course and I recommend it as well!
15:26:10	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Where does the training happen?  On cloud machines?
15:26:21	 From  LDC : Do you have a link to the course?
15:26:32	 From  Anubhav Agarwal (Edge Impulse) : @Rahman Yes, training happens in the cloud.
15:26:43	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://www.coursera.org/learn/introduction-to-embedded-machine-learning
15:26:54	 From  LDC : Thank you
15:27:52	 From  Zin : @Muhamed Fauzi Bin Abbas you will get this when you export to c++ library on deployment page (after you finish training a model)
15:28:03	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : So my understanding is that there is a cost per hour type of system for that, correct?  We could also train using our own system and then serialize the model to run on a controller?  Let's say we already had a tensorflow or pytorch model?
15:28:05	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://studio.edgeimpulse.com/public/37001/latest
15:28:25	 From  Dave Nadler : Can you clarify training before deployment and edge training? So far you seem to be talking just about running inference at the edge? Thanks!
15:35:52	 From  Andrei : How do we connect the device to a different project... like the one we just cloned?
15:36:22	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : edge-impulse-daemon --clean
15:36:29	 From  Andrei : Thanks, I tried with just one dash
15:36:39	 From  LDC : Where do you type that?
15:36:50	 From  Justin Lutz : I just had to do the same thing as well after my testing yesterday :)
15:37:14	 From  Andrew Siemer (Edge Impulse) : https://docs.edgeimpulse.com/docs/cli-installation#installation---macos-and-windows
15:37:27	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://edgeimpulse.notion.site/Edge-Impulse-Embedded-Online-Conference-Participant-Pre-requisites-July-27-2021-d3226bc26f374794b0bb554096d95424
15:39:22	 From  LDC : Any quick hint at that stage if you get an access denied error for the com port when trying to connect to the device (on Windows through PowerShell)
15:39:49	 From  LDC : I did that already
15:39:51	 From  LDC : same issue
15:40:11	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : Start-Process powershell.exe -ArgumentList ("-NoExit",("cd {0}" -f (Get-Location).path)) -Verb RunAs
15:50:26	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : What kinds of data augmentations does Edge Impulse allow?  Flips, rotations, crops?
15:51:38	 From  Vishnu B Raj : That's awesome
15:53:03	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Is there a cost to training the model on the cloud?
15:53:27	 From  LDC : (I made progress connecting using your link- now I get "Serial is connected, trying to read config...)
15:53:29	 From  Aditya Mangalampalli (Edge Impulse) : @Rahman, we support all augmentations that are included within the Tensorflow Augmentation module (exposure, flips, crops, etc.)
15:53:30	 From  Aditya Mangalampalli (Edge Impulse) : https://www.tensorflow.org/tutorials/images/data_augmentation
15:53:41	 From  LDC : (and repeated timeouts)
15:54:04	 From  LDC : Many
15:54:07	 From  Justin Lutz : do you have fw on spresense board?
15:54:08	 From  LDC : (continuous)
15:54:16	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Thanks @Aditya
15:54:33	 From  Vishnu B Raj : Does hyperparameter tuning done here automatically in case of custom models?
15:54:34	 From  LDC : (Yes I did....and we can likely solve this later unless others are having trouble)
15:54:41	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://docs.edgeimpulse.com/docs/sony-spresense#3-update-the-bootloader-and-the-firmware
15:54:43	 From  LDC : I will retry that
15:54:43	 From  Anubhav Agarwal (Edge Impulse) : @Rahman, Mehdi For audio data we have other types of augmentation such as axis warping, noise, etc.
15:55:11	 From  Justin Lutz : might need new bootloader as well
15:55:18	 From  LDC : Got it . Thanks
15:55:19	 From  Justin Lutz : I had to do that via Arduino IDE
15:55:37	 From  Darryl : Previously I tried flashing both this one and also the one below (Arduino).  Did not seem to work.  I also had to modify the baudrate.
15:56:22	 From  David DeFilippis : @Justin Lutz, I ended up having to do the same thing. I couldn’t get the EI bootloader working on the Spresense until I loaded the Arduino bootloader first.
15:56:23	 From  Anubhav Agarwal (Edge Impulse) : @Rahman, Mehdi you can also extend the augmentations in Expert mode easily
15:56:23	 From  Darryl : I think the Arduino is on the same page just lower
15:56:39	 From  Justin Lutz : @David, yup
15:56:42	 From  armaghan : For Arduino please use this: https://developer.sony.com/develop/spresense/docs/arduino_set_up_en.html
16:04:44	 From  Vishnu B Raj : There might be more than 3 features right? How are these 3 features selected in this visualization?
16:04:54	 From  Justin Lutz : if you are using your own dataset, is there a quick way to split the data between training and test?
16:05:24	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://umap-learn.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
16:05:27	 From  Vishnu B Raj : Thanks
16:05:38	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : How long does the model inference take on the device?  Is it 5 ms passing the image to the model and getting an output from the microcontroller?
16:07:02	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Does the Edge Impulse interface show you the full timing?  It only shows 5 ms but nothing on passing the features to the model and getting an output?
16:07:32	 From  Justin Lutz : great, thanks!
16:08:38	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : @Jenny, thanks for the clarification!
16:11:30	 From  Vishnu B Raj : In realtime projects is it possible to use data collected from spresence and train again in cloud and update the model automatically?
16:12:23	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : Out of curiosity, what kind of speed boost does the EON optimizer give compared to the base inference without the optimization?
16:13:26	 From  Dave Nadler : Can you do any learning or model adjustment at the edge only?
16:17:42	 From  Justin Lutz : yikes, I got "excessive protocols" error
16:18:00	 From  Justin Lutz : while flashing
16:18:11	 From  Darryl : I had to lower the baud rate to fix that error
16:19:08	 From  Darryl : Mine was way higher to begin.  It worked at 115k
16:19:09	 From  Justin Lutz : thanks will give it a try
16:21:26	 From  Rahman, Mehdi : What is the 391 on the current serial output?
16:21:45	 From  Darryl : I was never able to get beyond the nuttx or Arduino boot prompts.  How is the best way to get help?
16:21:53	 From  LDC : Thank you! Is there a contact link for further debugging if the re-flashing solution doesn't work?
16:22:03	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : hello@edgeimpulse.com
16:22:04	 From  LDC : Thank you
16:22:09	 From  Jenny Plunkett (Edge Impulse) : https://forum.edgeimpulse.com/
