2024 Embedded Vision Summit Showcase: Network Optix General Session Presentation

Check out the general session presentation “Scaling Vision-Based Edge AI Solutions: From Prototype to Global Deployment” at the upcoming 2024 Embedded Vision Summit, taking place May 21-23 in Santa Clara, California!

The Embedded Vision Summit brings together innovators in silicon, devices, software and applications and empowers them to bring computer vision and perceptual AI into reliable and scalable products. However, integrating recent hardware, software and algorithm innovations into prime-time-ready products is quite challenging. Scaling from a proof of concept—for example, a novel neural network architecture performing a valuable task efficiently on a new piece of silicon—to an AI vision system installed in hundreds of sites requires surmounting myriad hurdles. First, building on Network Optix’s 14 years of experience, Professor Kaptein will detail how to overcome the networking, fleet management, visualization and monetization challenges that come with scaling a global vision solution. Second, Maurits will discuss the complexities of making vision AI solutions device-agnostic and remotely manageable, proposing an open standard for AI model deployment to edge devices. The proposed standard aims to simplify market entry for silicon manufacturers and enhance scalability for solution developers. Maurits will outline the standard’s core components and invite collaborative contributions to drive market expansion.

Maurits Kaptein, a Full Professor of Statistics at Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands), also serves as the Chief Data Scientist at Network Optix, based in California. With over two decades of experience, he has pioneered the practical application of machine learning and AI across diverse sectors such as e-commerce, healthcare and computer vision. Notably, he played a pivotal role in popularizing the multi-armed bandit (MAB) approach for online content optimization, developing innovative and scalable solutions for web-based MAB problems. He co-founded Scailable, which was dedicated to hardware-agnostic edge AI deployment, and led the company until its acquisition by Network Optix in early 2024. He now spearheads the creation of an open ecosystem at Network Optix, aimed at democratizing vision-based edge AI solutions. Maurits has authored or co-authored four books and over 100 papers in prestigious academic journals.

The Summit is the premier conference for innovators incorporating computer vision and edge AI in products. It attracts a global audience of technology professionals from companies developing computer vision and edge AI-enabled products including embedded systems, cloud solutions and mobile applications.
