Machine Learning has started its move from the cloud to the periphery of the network. Today’s edge devices are becoming smarter and are no longer the dumb devices that would simply transmit the data to some central location. The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering is conducting the 2nd department distinguished Industry-Academia Interaction lecture in the ECE DDIAIL series. Dr Amit Kumar Saha, Principal Engineer at Cisco Meraki, Bangalore, will deliver a talk on the topic ‘Computer vision at the edge’.
The talk will focus on the evolution of a specific type of edge device, the surveillance camera, from the traditional CCTV model to the smart camera model. It will discuss some of the engineering and research challenges in building smart cameras that lie at the periphery of the network.
Date: May 7, 2022
Time: 10.30 am to 12.00 pm IST
