Edge computing helps to break beyond the limitations imposed by traditional cloud solutions.
In this talk, Rustam Mehmandarov and Tannaz Roshandel will introduce the concept and benefits of Edge Computing, how such devices can be built using affordable hardware and we will look at examples on how IoT Edge devices are in practice as well as comparing Edge Computing with other options.
In a live demo, they will use a system built using Google Coral IoT Edge device. This is an example to process video streams on the Edge and designed to keep the privacy of the people intact; without leaking faces and identity of the people to a 3rd party. In addition to standard video processing, we will show advanced ML techniques and models that are processed on to the device to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the Edge devices nowadays.
We will serve baguettes/sandwiches from 16:30 (4:30 PM).
The presentations will be held in English. The event is open and free for everyone, so feel free to invite a colleague, but please sign up individually.
The event is organized by Tekna Big Data. If you are a Tekna member, you may join Tekna Big Data for free.
