Edge AI and Privacy
As sensors and AI proliferate in our devices and our environment, people are understandably concerned about the potential erosion of privacy. For example, there has recently been much discussion in the media about face recognition technology, and some governments have begun to regulate its use.
It may initially seem that the proliferation of sensors and AI must lead to loss of privacy. In reality, it’s possible to design intelligent, perceptive devices in ways that deliver valuable capabilities while protecting privacy. An early example of this is the Netatmo Welcome, a smart home monitoring camera that can be configured to disable video recording when familiar faces are present.
The purpose of this privacy portal is to facilitate awareness of the challenges and opportunities at the intersection of privacy, edge AI and machine perception.

“Improving Nursing Care with Privacy-Sensitive Edge Computer Vision,” a Presentation from Kepler Vision Technologies
Harro Stokman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Kepler Vision Technologies, presents the “Improving Nursing Care with Privacy-Sensitive Edge Computer Vision” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit. Around the world, there is a serious and growing shortage of nurses. Nursing care at night is a particular challenge because night shifts are less attractive
What’s New: Today, Intel introduced Intel® RealSense™ ID, an on-device solution that combines an active depth sensor with a specialized neural network designed to deliver secure, accurate and user-aware facial authentication. Intel RealSense ID works with smart locks, access control, point-of-sale, ATMs, kiosks and more. “Intel RealSense ID combines purpose-built hardware and software with a dedicated

In an age of universal surveillance, our sensing camera solutions offer a privacy-focused alternative. Security cameras are seemingly everywhere, all around us. They’ve become so ubiquitous that we barely even notice them anymore, monitoring and recording us
What’s New: Intel Labs and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Medicine) are co-developing technology to enable a federation of 29 international healthcare and research institutions led by Penn Medicine to train artificial intelligence (AI) models that identify brain tumors using a privacy-preserving technique called federated learning. Penn Medicine’s work

This blog post was originally published at Intel’s website. It is reprinted here with the permission of Intel. Privacy for machine learning (ML) and other data-intensive applications is increasingly threatened by sophisticated methods of re-identifying anonymized data. In addition, while encryption helps preserve privacy while data is stored on hard drives or moving over networks,
“Potential Impacts of Privacy Regulation and Litigation on Vision Technology,” a Presentation from Dorsey & Whitney LLP
Robert E. Cattanach, Partner at Dorsey & Whitney LLP, delivers the presentation “Potential Impacts of Privacy Regulation and Litigation on Vision Technology” at the Embedded Vision Alliance’s December 2019 Vision Industry and Technology Forum. Cattanach provides insights into the fast-changing world of privacy regulation and litigation.

Interactions with computer systems frequently benefit from the ability to detect information about the user or use environment. Image processing and analyzing techniques, including deep neural networks (DNNs), are often used for this purpose. However, many promising
Mike Borza, Principal Security Technologist at Synopsys, presents the “Fundamental Security Challenges of Embedded Vision” tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit. As facial recognition, surveillance and smart vehicles become an accepted part of our daily lives, product and chip designers are coming to grips with the business need to secure the data that
Ilya Brailovskiy, Principal Engineer, and Changsoo Jeong, Head of Algorithm, both of Ring, present the "Optimizing SSD Object Detection for Low-power Devices" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit. In this talk, Brailovskiy and Jeong discuss how Ring designs smart home video cameras to make neighborhoods safer. In particular, they focus on three key
