15th Embedded Talk: AI Hardware for Autonomous Systems

Hardware challenges for autonomously acting (embedded) systems
Start Date

Learn more about the latest technologies and specific AI hardware challenges in autonomous embedded systems at this year's Embedded Talk, Oct. 6, 2021, 1:30 p.m., in our virtual roundtable.

As a result of rapid technological progress, humans are being increasingly supported in their actions by machines. The functional scope of these "assistants" is becoming ever greater, but also more complex.

In order not to overwhelm people in this respect, but rather to relieve them, the relevance of autonomously acting systems will continue to increase. These systems must be able to learn and optimize independently and meet requirements in terms of correctness, performance, energy efficiency and costs.

In this year's 15th Embedded Talk, experts from research and industry will talk about the latest developments in AI hardware for autonomous embedded systems in a panel discussion. You, too, will have the opportunity to learn about challenges, technological innovations and practical solutions and to actively exchange ideas.
