Bringing AI to the edge, are you ready for it?

Session Abstract:

SASThe internet of things presents exciting opportunities to apply artificial intelligence for transformative business growth. Advanced analytics methodologies and embedded AI helps understand and process IoT data for meaningful business outcomes. This confluence of AI and IoT, also known as AIoT will run the entire gamut from personalization in healthcare for the connected patient to the prediction of component failures in large industrial assets. What are the benefits of augmenting traditional rules-based systems with adaptive learning systems in the world of IoT? Moving up another level, what will new innovations in computer vision technology bring to the IoT? The possibilities are limitless – enhanced industrial safety, traffic monitoring for smart city initiatives, drone inspections in agriculture that monitor health of crops, and much more. These applications will continue to improve with faster processors, more advanced machine learning algorithms and deeper integration to edge devices. In this session, participants will learn about key trends in AIoT, applications, challenges, and considerations for making ‘things’ in the internet of things more intelligent.
