Artificial Intelligence. Machine Learning. These terms have become quite popular recently but their roots go back to the 1950s. At this point the goals were lofty: analogs of consciousness. Despite the hype these remain lofty goals. But there is one thing that AI is really good at: perception. This has been enabled through advances in compute capability and now we are embedding perception into edge devices.
In this talk we will discuss the implications for the supporting communications systems; how we’re no longer limited by the capacity (and cost) of a connection to the cloud and how we can develop advanced applications with a combination of edge computing and narrowband communications.
We’ll detail this via a case study/demo.
By the end you will know a bit more about what AI can and can’t do, where we see it deployed today and how narrowband radio will play a role.
Spoiler alert: It’s definitely not Skynet.
