Now available—the Embedded Vision Summit On-Demand Edition! Gain valuable computer vision and edge AI insights and know-how from the experts at the 2021 Summit.

Dear Colleague,Platform.ai Webinar

On Thursday, July 23 at 9 am PT, platform.ai will deliver the free webinar “AI Training Data Image Labeling and Few-Shot Learning: Under the Hood with Platform.ai” in partnership with the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. The time it takes to accurately and comprehensively label training images remains one of the biggest problems in AI. Outsourcing the labeling effort is particularly ineffective in cases where subject
matter expertise is necessary to label the images or the images are confidential. Label accuracy in cases involving small training sets also remains a challenge. In this online presentation, platform.ai will discuss how the company employs a diversity of AI techniques to visualize image sets, facilitating mass expert labeling, as well as how it applies new few-shot learning approaches to solve for low-data cases. For more information and to register, please see the event page.

What do these five things have in common?

  1. Augmented reality glasses for macular degeneration
  2. A gigapixel microscope that captures detail over hundreds of square centimeters
  3. An AI-powered data platform that helps with parking
  4. 3D thermal imagers to help autonomous things, day or night
  5. Algorithms that help robots see

They’re innovations by the five computer vision and visual AI start-ups that will be competing to win the coveted Judges’ Award (along with the Audience Choice award) in the Vision Tank Start-Up Competition, a live event taking place online from 9-10 am PT on July 16, 2020, sponsored by the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. This is your chance to watch as the finalists pitch their companies and products to a panel of judges in an effort to win the Judges’ Award. Then, cast your vote to help your favorite start-up win the Audience Choice award. And after the competition, talk with the finalists in live Q&A sessions. To learn more about the finalists, watch their pitch videos. And then register (for free!) to attend the Vision Tank Start-Up Competition on July 16 at 9 am PT!

At the upcoming Embedded Vision Summit, taking place online September 15-25, you’ll of course find top-quality talks on the practical aspects of image-based AI for real-world products. But that’s not all. These days, AI is being applied not only to image data, but also to many other types of sensor data: audio, vibration, radar, lidar and many others. In addition to vision-centric topics, at the Summit, you’ll also learn techniques and gain insights that will help you use AI effectively on other types of sensor data. Check out the already announced talks for yourself. (We’re adding new talks daily, and it won’t be long before we’ll have nearly 100 talks across four tracks.)

How To Choose the Best AI Processor for the EdgeBitfury
We are in the middle of one of the largest technological revolutions in history, notes Fabrizio Del Maffeo, Head of Artificial Intelligence at Bitfury, in this essay. The growing popularity of the Internet of Things, combined with significant advances in artificial intelligence, will culminate in a wave of digital disruption, changing (and improving) many aspects of our online and offline worlds. But for this future to take hold, the way we design hardware will need to change as well — namely, shifting from the cloud to the edge and from traditional computing designs to AI architectures. Del Maffeo summarizes the latest trends and changes in computing related to AI and IoT, as well as providing some essential metrics for companies seeking to build solutions for AI/IoT devices.


PyTorch Deep Learning Framework: Status and DirectionsFacebook
In this presentation, Joseph Spisak, Product Manager at Facebook, gives an update on the Torch deep learning framework and where it’s heading.



How to Get Started with Deep Learning FrameworksNVIDIA
Developers don’t want to start from scratch every time they build a deep learning neural network, NVIDIA suggests in this guide to the top deep learning frameworks for AI research. Deep learning models are large and complex, so instead of writing every function from the ground up, programmers rely on frameworks and software libraries to create neural networks efficiently. Frameworks provide highly optimized, GPU-enabled code that is specific to deep neural network computations.
