It is imperative to make high-profile technologies like AI affordable in order for these technologies to proliferate and to benefit the general public. Shaoshan Liu discusses PerceptIn’s road to affordable AI-capable products. PerceptIn started with SLAM technology to enable movements of robots. As the company developed, it incorporated more and more AI capabilities into its products. With heavy optimization, it is able to bring these technologies onto low-cost processors, allowing PerceptIn to design affordable hardware for the general public.
Shaoshan Liu is the cofounder and chairman of PerceptIn, a company working on developing a next-generation robotics platform. Previously, he worked on autonomous driving and deep learning infrastructure at Baidu USA. Shaoshan holds a PhD in computer engineering from the University of California, Irvine.
