*Biosketch: *Pete Warden (Google) is Lead of the TensorFlow
Mobile/Embedded team at Google. He was senior engineer at Apple and CTO
of Jetpac. He is the author of the Data Source and of the TinyML
handbooks for O'Reilly.
*Abstract: *Machine learning on embedded hardware is a new field that's
only beginning to be used in the developed world, but it has some
characteristics that may make it particularly appropriate for developing
countries. The hardware and software required to train students, advance
research, and build products is much cheaper than the equivalents for
Cloud ML, and since the devices don't need reliable network or even main
power connections, they can be deployed almost anywhere. AsTechnical
Lead of the TensorFlow Micro open source project from Google, he has
previously helped projects like Plant Village use on-device deep
learning in West Africa. In this talk he will introduce some of the
possibilities that edge compute opens up for the world outside the West,
and will be looking to learn from the audience what problems in their
domains it might be applicable to.
The talk will be followed by a question/answer session.
