The introduction of a modern image recognition that has millions of parameters and requires a lot of training data as well as high computing power that is hungry for energy consumption so it becomes inefficient in everyday use. Machine Learning has changed the computing paradigm, from complex calculations that require high computational power to environmentally friendly technologies that can efficiently meet daily needs. To get the best training model, many studies use large numbers of datasets. However, the complexity of large datasets requires large devices and requires high computing power. Therefore large computational resources do not have high flexibility towards the tendency of human interaction which prioritizes the efficiency and effectiveness of computer vision. This study uses the Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) method with MobileNet architecture for image recognition on mobile devices and embedded devices with limited resources with ARM-based CPUs and works with a moderate amount of training data (thousands of labeled images). As a result, the MobileNet v1 architecture on the ms8pro device can classify the caltech101 dataset with an accuracy rate 92.4% and 2.1 Watt power draw. With the level of accuracy and efficiency of the resources used, it is expected that MobileNet's architecture can change the machine learning paradigm so that it has a high degree of flexibility towards the tendency of human interaction that prioritizes the efficiency and effectiveness of computer vision.
