TensorFlow Lite vs. Fritz AI Studio

Mobile Machine Learning Technology Comparison

Many engineers who are looking for an ML provider for their mobile project consider TensorFlow Lite. It’s is a lightweight ML model framework based in TensorFlow, Google’s popular open-source deep learning library. TensorFlow Lite models are built with mobile and edge deployment front and center, and supportive libraries help ML engineers optimize models in terms of size, speed, and prediction accuracy. While an essential part of the mobile ML ecosystem, TensorFlow Lite in and of itself is not a tool to build custom models. As such, developers must manage TensorFlow Lite models on their own, unless they’re managing those models with another external service, or in-house model management systems.

Fritz AI Studio is a machine learning platform built specifically for iOS and Android developers who may not have an ML background. Customers use it to generate and collect labeled datasets, train optimized models without code, deploy and manage on any mobile platforms, and improve models and app UX based on real-world data.
