Samir Kumar, Managing Director at Microsoft M12, moderates the “Opportunities and Challenges in Realizing the Potential for AI at the Edge: An Update from the Front Lines” Expert Panel at the September 2020 Embedded Vision Summit. Other panelists include Pete Warden, Staff Research Engineer at Google; Stevie Bathiche, Technical Fellow at Microsoft; Steve Teig, CEO at Perceive; and Luis Ceze, Professor at the University of Washington and Co-founder and CEO of OctoML.
The opportunity for edge AI solutions at scale is massive—and is expected to eclipse cloud-based approaches in the next few years. But to realize this potential, we must find ways to simplify and democratize the development and deployment of edge AI systems. What are the most critical gaps that must be filled to streamline edge AI development and deployment? What are the most promising recent innovations in this space? What should “DevOps for edge AI” look like? In this panel discussion, you’ll hear perspectives on these and related questions from leading experts who are enabling the next generation of edge AI solutions.
