Awesome TensorFlow Lite Awesome PRs Welcome Twitter

TensorFlow Lite is a set of tools that help convert and optimize TensorFlow models to run on mobile and edge devices. It's currently running on more than 4 billion devices! With TensorFlow 2.x, you can train a model with tf.Keras, easily convert a model to .tflite and deploy it; or you can download a pretrained TensorFlow Lite model from the model zoo.

This is an awesome list of TensorFlow Lite models with sample apps, helpful tools and learning resources -
