Future-Proofing Products: Navigating the Edge AI Revolution

Better. Safer. Faster.

Integration of AI-enabled chipsets directly into IoT devices is on the rise due to the need for faster, more efficient, and secure data processing. Fleet management, automated industrial machines, drones and autonomous vehicles are just a few leading applications of processing AI at the edge – we can expect many industries to follow suit as the drive for real-time responsiveness and enhanced privacy and security grows.

Our panel of experts will provide insights into growing hardware development trends, and answer questions such as:

  • How do you choose the right AI chipset for your IoT device?
  • How can you ensure long-term product success and adaptability?
  • What regulatory considerations are there for deploying Edge AI?

Get your head out of the cloud and join the Edge AI revolution ‚úä
