|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
Tomorrow, February 25, 2021 at 9 am PT, Edge Impulse will deliver the free webinar “How to Rapidly Build Robust Data-driven Embedded Machine Learning Applications,” in partnership with the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. In this in-depth tutorial, you’ll learn how to build commercial embedded machine learning (ML) applications, in robust implementations ranging from simple sensor configurations to powerful computer vision deployments. Topics covered in the webinar will include:
The webinar will include live demonstrations of the concepts discussed, and is co-presented by Zach Shelby, CEO and co-founder, and Daniel Situnayake, founding ML engineer, both of Edge Impulse. For more information and to register, please see the event page.
And on Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 9 am PT, GrAI Matter Labs will deliver the free webinar “Brain-inspired Processing Architecture Delivers High Performance, Energy-efficient, Cost-effective AI” in partnership with the Alliance. If a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a million, how do you enable ultra-fast, efficient, and cost-effective edge AI for a world immersed in video? GrAI Matter Labs has developed a processor that delivers the fastest AI per Watt using a technology called NeuronFlow. NeuronFlow is the product of brain-inspired computing, with scalable digital technology that is easily programmable to enable real-time response systems with minimal power consumption, size and cost. In this session, GrAI Matter Labs VP Mahesh Makhijani will present a number of use cases enabled by the company’s partners using its NeuronFlow technology. For more information and to register, please see the event page.
We’re pleased to announce our keynote speaker for the 2021 Embedded Vision Summit, the premier conference for innovators adding computer vision and visual AI to products, taking place online May 25-27. UC Berkeley Professor Pieter Abbeel is Director of the Berkeley Robot Learning Lab and Co-Director of the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence (BAIR) Lab. Abbeel is a scholar, entrepreneur, researcher, worldwide speaker, and multi-award winner. His presentation, “From Inference to Action: AI Beyond Pattern Recognition,” is a can’t-miss event! Learn more about Abbeel and his keynote session, along with the other exciting planned presentations and additional activities at the Summit, and then register today with promo code SUPEREARLYBIRD21 to receive your 25%-off Super Early Bird Discount (good through this Friday, February 26)!
The Alliance is now accepting applications for the 2021 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards competition, with the final round taking place live online during the Embedded Vision Summit. The Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards (an expansion of previous years’ Vision Product of the Year Awards) celebrate the innovation of the industry’s leading companies that are developing and enabling the next generation of edge AI and computer vision products. Winning a Product of the Year award recognizes your leadership in edge AI and computer vision as evaluated by independent industry experts. The application deadline is Friday, March 19; for more information and to enter. please see the program page.
