Mallik P. Moturi, Chief Business Officer, Syntiant
Deep learning is the most effective method of artificial intelligence for interpreting patterns and classifying them for the real world. However, due to the computational complexity, it is usually relegated to the realm of energy hungry GPUs and CPUs, making it difficult to realize on edge devices. Syntiant’s Core 2 Neural Decision Processors (NDP) are optimally designed for deploying deep learning models on the edge, where power and area are often constrained.
In this talk, we will briefly touch on some of the challenges of the edge and how Syntiant’s NDP architecture can best be utilized to address these challenges.
Mitsuo Baba, Senior Director, Renesas
Recently, AI implementation in embedded computing is accelerating rapidly in all markets. In the ever-evolving AI technology, there are three key requirements for deploying AI functions "flexibility," "power efficiency," and "real-time operation." In this session, Renesas will explain the importance of these requirements and introduce solutions by the ready-to-use RZ family.

Scott Castle, Director, Innovation & Emerging Technologies Lexmark
For enterprises, building a good model is the start of operationalizing. Stakeholders across an organization, from IT to finance to field service, will ask challenging questions about the security, return on investment, and ongoing support. Not only for the model, but for the accompanying hardware, firmware, application management, and device management, especially for geographically distributed instances. Lexmark's Optra platform is a commercialized offering solving these problems. When combined with Edge Impulse the realization of AI's potential to enhance Operations effectiveness is closer than ever.
