New Training Class Expands Technical Program for 2018 Embedded Vision Summit

Embedded Vision Alliance Strengthens Focus on Computer Vision with Addition of Full-Day TensorFlow Training Class

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – March 8, 2018 – The Embedded Vision Alliance® today announced it is adding a full day of technical training to the 2018 Embedded Vision Summit, the preeminent conference on practical computer vision. The Summit will now kick off on Monday, May 21, 2018, with a hands-on training class, Deep Learning for Computer Vision with TensorFlow.  This expands the Summit to a four-day event, taking place May 21-24, in Santa Clara, California.

More than 1,200 computer vision professionals are expected to attend the Embedded Vision Summit, which attracts a global audience of companies developing vision-enabled products, both at the edge and in the cloud. The event features industry innovators, top technologists and engineers who are creating “machines that see” for a wide range of industries including automotive, entertainment, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, robotics and security. Keynote presenters for the Summit are globally renowned computer vision expert Dr. Takeo Kanade and legendary inventor Dean Kamen.

“According to our recent developer survey, Google’s TensorFlow is now the most popular AI and deep learning framework for developing vision-enabled systems, so we are excited to add this hand-on training to the Summit,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. “Our survey also revealed that a growing number of system designers are making use of cloud computing to provide visual intelligence for edge devices, so we’ve also expanded this year’s Summit to include significant content on edge-cloud computing trade-offs.”
