The search giant cleared that the focus is not to train the models for advanced machine learning, but to bring the low-latency interference capabilities from machine learning models to less-sturdy devices. However, the product is still in development phase the developer preview is to just give the taste of lightweight library to the developers. According to Google, the TensorFlow Lite is being designed to optimize and work on the performance of models such as MobileNet, Inception V3, Smart Reply and the library also support the Android Neural Network API. Along with the aim to enhance the model's performance, TensorFlow is also redesigned to get key features such as Lightweight, cross-platform and fast.
