MACE is a project of artificial intelligence created by the Xiaomi team that has been specially designed to be run on smartphone chips. These deep learning neural networks have been released for developers to use and have a good foundation on which to start.
The MACE project had its origin in the need to have artificial intelligence systems in light environments such as a smartphone. Although PCs and smartphones are increasingly more on par with hardware, AI cannot be limited to high-end terminals alone.
