On stage at Google I/O, Google revealed TensorFlow Lite, a special version of the open source TensorFlow software library that should help apps remain fast and small with machine learning.

TensorFlow Lite will help apps stay small and fast in Android O

TensorFlow Lite will help developers enable state-of-the-art machine learning and on smartphones with silicon-specific processes, Google says. This all feeds into one of Google's themes for Android Oreo, which is to provide "fluid experiences." We'll learn much more about TensorFlow Lite as Google I/O wears on, but Google has already hinted that it will require new processors to best take advantage of TensorFlow Lite.
