Towards the tail end of last year, Sipeed released their 64-bit RISC-V MAix module, crowdfunding a range of boards on Indiegogo specifically designed to do machine learning inferencing at the edge. No cloud needed.

We’ve also seen the MAix picked up by Seeed Studio who are putting together an MAix-based HAT for the Raspberry Pi.
