Machine learning and AI models now outperform humans on tasks ranging from image recognition to language translation. However, sending video, audio, and other sensor data up to the cloud and back is too slow for apps like Snapchat, features like “Hey, Siri!”, and autonomous machines like self-driving cars. This talk outlines why developers should be deploying deep learning models to the edge, common roadblocks they will face, and how to overcome them.
