Compute unit is a generic term for a system which does calculations i.e a computer doing specific task.
Machine learning (ML) requires significant compute power, edge devices like smartphones have grown powerful enough to run machine learning inference on them.
Standalone ML capable compute units which could detect pose of multiple people in the frame could cost upwards of $100, but if mass produced e.g. As part of the camera, then the price could be reduced.
