There's nothing "big-LITTLE" about a couple identical CPUs and a trip of graphics cores. Big-LITTLE is about a smaller CPU (maybe Cortex-A7) to offload a larger CPU (-A15). While big-LITTLE would be a good approach, I'm not sure I've seen any indication that was done in this chip. Separate on-chip graphics cores are standard design practice.

Don't understand it, why two cores and 3 gpus? I don't think they are using big little here. It could be just going to new process node and some system changes in the components.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
