AI, Neural Networks or Machine Learning technologies are being adopted in many circumstances to make products and systems more intelligent. Data usually has to be sent to a server for processing.

In order to develop smarter product this processing has to be done on the embedded system itself. But, the problem is that traditional embedded solutions cannot handle the processing power required. The solution is not just faster silicon – but new system architectures and implementations.

At this event, we will bring together “Embedded AI” technology suppliers & technology users to enable an understanding of the opportunities. The event is designed for people involved in the management and implementation of products – from developers to CTOs.

Event Title: Embedded AI: Part 1 Smart Silicon
Event Date: Thursday 23rd November 2017
Location: London

AI, Neural Networks or Machine Learning technologies are being adopted in many circumstances, but usually all the data has to be sent to a server for processing before being acted upon.

There would be many advantages of being able to do this analysis on the embedded system itself – faster decision making and the ability to implement AI in situations where the data link is not possible. But the problem is that traditional embedded compute platforms cannot handle the processing power required. The solution is not just faster silicon – but new architectures and ways to implement systems.

The Knowledge Transfer Network (www.ktn-uk.org) is organising a workshop “Embedded AI Part 1- Smart Silicon” on the 23rd November in London that will bring together technology suppliers and technology users to discuss the opportunities…

Growing the Artificial Intelligence Industry in the UK

In October, the Government published an independent review, carried out by Professor Dame Wendy Hall ((Regius Professor of Computer Science, University of Southampton) and Jérôme Pesenti (CEO, BenevelentTech) on how the Artificial Intelligence industry can be grown in the UK. It makes recommendations around skills, data, research and adoption of AI. https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/652097/Growing_the_artificial_intelligence_industry_in_the_UK.pdf
