Why Attend

Limitations of cloud-based AI, such as latency, power consumption, security and cost, have become bottlenecks for the deployment of AI products and services in environments close to data sources. The Edge AI Summit focuses on the challenges of disaggregating AI processing across the edge computing paradigm, from cloud to device via localized ‘fog’ compute nodes near the network edge. 

Themes for this year’s summit focus on challenges such as embedding tiny machine learning models on battery-powered devices, using AI for network slicing, applying machine learning to streaming data, and deploying cohesive infrastructure to empower developers to build AI software for the edge. 

The Edge AI Summit attracted 150+ technology leaders from across the globe in December 2018, and returns this November for tech companies, device manufacturers and enterprises who are deploying machine learning to the edge.

Flex Logix’s NMAX platform excels at getting high hardware utilization at batch=1, which is critical for edge applications. Most of the new information is in the 2nd half of the slide deck.

NMAX delivers from 1 to 100+TOPS, as you need, at 10x lower cost and 3-5x lower power than existing solutions because we get 50-80% MAC utilization on tough models, meaning we need less silicon area, and we achieve it with 10x less DRAM bandwidth, meaning less DRAM cost and system power.
