Edge AI Summit 2021

Optimized & Secure Edge AI, Everywhere

Download the Agenda
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (HYBRID SUMMIT)
16-18 November, 2021

“When you look at some of the ideas and concepts that are actually being presented, it is key to moving the industry forward.”

Vice President, Ecosystem Strategy and Partnerships, Ericsson

Unlocking the Next Wave of Intelligent Devices

The opportunity of Edge AI is clear - it is bringing real-time, personalized, scalable, and secure AI to resource-constrained devices, unlocking the next wave of intelligent devices.

Optimizing AI performance whilst operating economically at the edge remains the elusive holy grail. For four years, the Edge AI Summit has aided enterprise adopters, OEMs, AI software, and hardware providers in their pursuit of deploying AI at the edge, by helping them form partnerships that will improve the performance of embedded hardware, optimize models, and compress workloads to enable high-performing and low-footprint AI to exist at the edge.

The 4th annual Edge AI Summit unites the technologists tasked with designing and developing real-world use cases that bring real-time and secure AI to low-power applications from the sensor-edge to device-edge, and to areas that have limited connectivity to the cloud.

Including case studies from: Autonomous Vehicles | Aerospace/Aviation | Energy | Consumer Electronics | Industrial Automation | Medical Devices

Flex Logix’s NMAX platform excels at getting high hardware utilization at batch=1, which is critical for edge applications. Most of the new information is in the 2nd half of the slide deck.

NMAX delivers from 1 to 100+TOPS, as you need, at 10x lower cost and 3-5x lower power than existing solutions because we get 50-80% MAC utilization on tough models, meaning we need less silicon area, and we achieve it with 10x less DRAM bandwidth, meaning less DRAM cost and system power.
