About This Webinar
Daniel L. Lau reviews the hardware options and essential software tools for creating AI-powered vision systems tailored for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The emergence of high-performance Arm-based processors for cellphones and tablets has spurred an increasing convergence of embedded and desktop computing, with Raspberry Pis that run Ubuntu taking over for real-time embedded operating systems.

This convergence has made computer vision systems particularly easy to build, with a minimal amount of programming instruction, using interpreted scripting languages such as Python and Java instead of hardware-targeted assembly or C. Furthermore, Wi-Fi is now widespread, and there is increasing interest in IoT and accumulating information in the cloud. But streaming video to the cloud remains a challenge, especially in environments that may already be saturated with data. Therefore, Lau focuses on vision processing in the sensor and using AI operations to identify features of importance housed inside the camera and streaming only a minimal amount of data to the cloud.
