Ken Mills, CEO of Epic IO, IntelliSite and Broad Sky Networks, Matthew Formica, Director of OpenVINO Product Marketing and Developer Evangelism at Intel, and Aaron Tersteeg, Global Sales Director for AI Edge Inference at Intel, co-present the “Why is Taking AI to Production So Difficult?” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
