4:00pm–4:40pm Tuesday, September 19, 2017
Location: Yosemite A

Prerequisite Knowledge

  • A general understanding of the consumer electronics marketplace

What you'll learn

  • Learn how visually intelligent systems that require low-power AI are put together
  • Explore the underlying silicon technologies that are enabling functions needed in new AI applications


This year, artificial intelligence has arrived in the market, powering intelligent surveillance cameras, autonomous consumer drones, and other intelligent and autonomous “things.” We are witnessing a new era of visually intelligent devices that over the next several years will push the boundaries of what microelectronics can offer, but these devices will require new levels of computational complexity at lower power to bring autonomy and intelligence to new consumer applications.

Gary Brown shares the under-the-hood technologies that are enabling devices to function at lower power and with more sophisticated deep learning computation, in turn giving device makers the critical functions that, when put together, enable AI in battery-driven consumer applications. Gary focuses on the new innovations at the silicon level fueling the realization of visually intelligent things.
