Dear Colleague,Embedded Vision Summit

A month ago, I directed your attention to the just-launched "microsite" for the upcoming Embedded Vision Summit, a technical educational forum for engineers interested in incorporating visual intelligence into electronic systems and software, taking place on May 12, 2015 in Santa Clara, California. Now I'm happy to report that details on the two scheduled Summit keynote speakers have been published.

Dr. Ren Wu is a distinguished scientist at Baidu's Institute of Deep Learning (IDL). As China's leading search engine, Baidu's focus is not only on indexing website text but also multimedia content, such as still images and video clips. It's in these latter areas where computer vision fits in, enabling automated analysis and identification of the various objects embedded within the visual information. Dr. Wu will discuss how his team is leveraging "deep learning" convolutional neural network techniques, along with heterogeneous computing acceleration, to optimize image search speed and accuracy.

Mike Aldred, the other scheduled Summit keynote presenter, is the Electronics Lead at Dyson. After obtaining a Ph.D. in Robotics at the University of Kent, Canterbury, Mike joined Dyson when his research group was hired to help the company develop a robotic vacuum cleaner...
