WHO'S ATTENDING

ATTENDEES ACROSS THE EDGE AI SUMMIT SERIES

ABOUT THE EVENT

For its 5th year, Kisaco Research’s Edge AI Summit returns to the Bay Area, CA, fully face-to-face and co-located with the industry leading AI Hardware Summit.

This year’s event has been re-thought, re-designed and re-built from the ground up through research with industry experts to support enterprise adopters, OEMs, AI software, and hardware providers in their pursuit of deploying economical, efficient, and optimized AI at the edge.

Across two-days, you will join thought-provoking discussion and hear engaging insight from those tasked with bringing real-time and secure AI to low-power applications and areas that have limited connectivity to the cloud.

And the co-location with AI Hardware Summit means you will rub shoulders with hardware and systems engineers and architects under one roof. The best of the best from Silicon Valley, alongside pathfinding practitioners from enterprises and research institutions from across the globe.

The combined proposition sits at the intersection of systems design and AI development. We’re here to boost developer efficiency, expand AI practitioners’ toolkits, and improve the overall quality of collaboration between systems builders and the ML community.
