USC AI Futures Symposium on AI on the Edge – Day 1 of 2

Event Details

We would like to invite you to a USC AI Futures Symposium on “Artificial Intelligence on the Edge”, to be held March 16-17, 2023 at 9am-12pm PST / 12pm-3pm EST on a virtual stage.

Please visit the event website for list of speakers and other information:

The website has an agenda and a link to register. The event is free and open for everyone to attend.

This event is part of our popular USC AI Futures Symposium Series. Many of you attended prior events with the themes “AI with Common Sense”, “AI and Data Science”, and “Will AIs Ever Be One of Us?”.

Feel free to share this announcement with your colleagues and students.

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium!

Speaker Bio

Intelligent data processing in edge devices has become increasingly important with the rapid growth of ubiquitous sensors and their data generation rates. AI applications on the edge enable autonomous sensor steering, fast operations on smartphones, neuromorphic biodevices, and a vast array of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. For these kinds of applications, it is not possible or practical to convert all the analog data into digital and send to data centers to process in the cloud. There are many research challenges in terms of the design of algorithms and hardware required to support AI on the edge in terms of real-time processing at greater scale, storage capacity, and reduced energy consumption.

This symposium presents an overview of research innovations at the University of Southern California (USC) on AI on the Edge, from enabling hardware and algorithms to their co-design. Topics include AI and machine learning algorithms for edge devices and TinyML, bio-inspired and neuromorphic computing, new technologies and device materials beyond CMOS, and hardware-software co-design.

This event is part of the USC AI Futures Symposium Series. Information about prior events and recordings are available here.
