Getting Started with Scailable on NVIDIA® Jetson Devices

What is Scailable?

Scailable provides a platform for creating and managing Edge AI solutions at scale. With Scailable, you can simply configure any supported edge device (such as a router, gateway, or IPC) to turn it into a "smart" device. Smart devices can run advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) models on input data, such as a video stream, to turn the input into something meaningful, such as a count of the number of cars in the video.
