Event description

Description

Market research estimates there will be as many as 20 billion connected devices in the market by 2020*. These devices are expected to generate billions of petabytes of data traffic between cloud and edge devices. In
2017 alone, 8.4B connected devices* are expected in the market which is sparking a strong need to pre-process data at the edge. This has led many IoT device manufacturers, especially those working on vision based devices like smart cameras, drones, robots, AR/VR, etc., to bring intelligence to the edge.

Through the recent addition of the Movidius™ VPU technology to its existing AI edge solutions portfolio, Intel is well positioned to provide solutions that help developers and data scientists pioneer the low-power intelligent edge devices segment. This workshop will provide hands-on experience with Intel’s Neural Compute Stick – a low-cost, form-factor developer kit for low-power vision based embedded inference applications.

What You Will Learn:

  • Insights into how Movidius™ VPUs are pioneering DNN accelerated vision processing.

  • Introduction to hardware and software components of NCS.

  • Workflow of network profiling and application development using NCS.

  • Detection/Classification models

  • Advanced functionalities

  • Hands-on with advanced demos and sample codes built using NC SDK’s API framework, which includes support for Caffe and TensorFlow


Requirements:

- Linux laptop with Ubuntu 16.04 and Neural Compute SDK installed (https://github.com/movidius/ncsdk)

Sponsored by DesignSpark (https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/home)
and hosted in partnership with Intel and the Open Source Hardware User Group.

Closing date for bookings is Wednesday 21st February 2018 at 08:30 am. No more bookings will be taken after this date.

For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event please note that BCS does not issue invitation letters.
