On August 20, 2020, Jeff Bier, founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance, will present two sessions of a free one-hour webinar, “Key Trends in the Deployment of Edge AI and Computer Vision”. The first session will take place at 9 am PT (noon ET), timed for attendees in Europe and the Americas. The second session, at 6 pm PT (9 am China Standard Time on August 21), is schedule-tailored for attendees in Asia.
With so much happening in edge AI and computer vision applications and technology, and happening so fast, it can be difficult to see the big picture. This webinar from the Edge AI and Vision Alliance will examine the four most important trends that are fueling the proliferation of edge AI and vision applications and influencing the future of the industry:
- Deep learning – including a focus on the key challenges of obtaining sufficient training data and managing workflows.
- Streamlining edge development – thanks to cloud computing and higher levels of abstraction in both hardware and software, it is now much easier than ever before for developers to implement AI and vision capabilities in edge devices.
- Fast, cheap, energy-efficient processors – massive investment in specialized processors is paying off, delivering 1000x improvements in performance and efficiency, enabling AI and vision to be deployed even in very cost- and energy-constrained applications at the edge.
- New sensors – the introduction of new 3D optical, thermal, neuromorphic and other advanced sensor technologies into high-volume applications like mobile phones and automobiles has catalyzed a dramatic acceleration in innovation, collapsing the cost and complexity of implementing visual perception.
The webinar is presented by Jeff Bier, Founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance and Co-founder and President of BDTI. Bier will explain what’s fueling each of these key trends, and will highlight key implications for technology suppliers, solution developers and end-users. He will also provide technology and application examples illustrating each of these trends, including spotlighting the winners of the Alliance’s yearly Vision Product of the Year Awards. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
