The Linley Tech Mobile Conference: Jeff Bier Will Discuss Embedded Vision's Ascendance

As many of you already know from recent Alliance email and other communication, the premier Silicon Valley edition of the Embedded Vision Summit is coming up in a bit more than a month. One week ahead of that, however, Silicon Valley residents (and visitors) will have another opportunity to hear about embedded vision, specifically on mobile electronics devices. BDTI co-founder and president (and Alliance founder) Jeff Bier will present "Embedded Vision: Giving Mobile Devices the Ability to See and Understand" within the morning Heterogeneous Processing track on Day 1 of the two-day (April 17 and 18) Mobile Conference 2013, sponsored by the Linley Group.

Here's the abstract of Jeff's planned pitch:

With their powerful image sensors and processors, today’s mobile devices are capable of sophisticated computer vision functionality.  Semiconductor suppliers, OEMs and software vendors are investing to enable mobile visual intelligence for tasks such as computational photography, gesture UIs and augmented reality.  Embedded vision presents meaningful differentiation opportunities for OEMs, chip suppliers and others -- but it’s a challenging technology to get right.  We explore the trends around vision capabilities in mobile devices and discuss the challenges associated with implementing robust vision functionality.

Multiple Alliance member companies (CEVA, Intel, Qualcomm, Synopsys, and Tensilica) are also represented in the two-day presentation suite. Attendance is free to qualified applicants who submit registrations by April 11. The conference is intended for designers of mobile chips, mobile devices, and mobile software as well as service providers, press, and the financial community.
