The European Artificial Intelligence Week


AI is not only a story of big datacenters. With the explosion of Internet of Things devices, a lot of opportunities are created for providing intelligence at the edge of the network as well.

AI at the edge can help in making AI more privacy aware, latency optimized, etc. In this session, we’ll talk about different perspectives towards edge AI. We cover both software and hardware aspects and cover both AI components (chips, algorithms) up to end-to-end applications (semi-autonomous shipping).
