can attend by keeping distances and wearing a mask.
*Biosketch: *Pete Warden 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
mains power connections, they can be deployed almost anywhere. Pete
Warden is the Technical Lead of the TensorFlow Micro open source project
from Google, and has previously helped projects like Plant Village use
on-device deep learning in West Africa. In this talk he'll 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.
