Salil Raje, Senior Vice President in the Software and IP Products Group at Xilinx, presents the “Leveraging Edge and Cloud for Visual Intelligence Solutions” tutorial at the May 2018 Embedded Vision Summit.
For many computer vision systems, a critical decision is whether to implement vision processing at the edge or in the cloud. In a growing number of cases, designers are choosing to use both edge and cloud processing, which opens up the possibility of leveraging the strengths of both approaches. But determining the best mix of edge and cloud processing for an application can be challenging because the trade-offs are often complex and subtle, involving numerous factors such as latency, cost, bandwidth and power consumption. In this talk, Raje explores the advantages of combining edge and cloud processing for visual intelligence, and outlines ways that solution developers can optimize their applications for the right blend.
