Engineering AI Track - AI in Consumer Electronics and Appliances
The AI capabilities of consumer electronics and appliances including vacuum cleaners, voice-enabled personal assistants and speakers, VR headsets/displays, and even washing machines, have increased dramatically, thanks in large part to advances in computer processing power.  But what does it really take from a design engineering perspective to successfully develop an application like AI-enabled object detection/image recognition so that a vacuum cleaner, for example, “goes to where the dirt is”?
  • Go behind-the-scenes with the companies who have successfully applied AI to real-world consumer electronics and appliances today and hear their stories
  • Learn about the key AI building blocks necessary for applications like image recognition and voice processing
  • Gain insight into the potential pitfalls of an AI implementation and how to avoid them

Engineering AI Track - Embedding a Secure Solution for the AIoT Big-Bang
The artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) represents one of the most exciting and important technology pairings in the world today. It is anticipated to explode into life in 2025 and with the current Covid-19 pandemic, we anticipate that this will accelerate further still. But with this revolution comes a range of challenges. No matter how far you want to take the concept of AIoT, its success depends on being able to drive one of the most impressive feats of electronics engineering the digital era has ever seen. AIoT devices demand a processor with high-performance compute, efficient energy usage and a low eBOM.

As AIoT devices proliferate, security and privacy become one of the most pressing challenges for applications soon to infiltrate our homes, workplaces and day-to-day lives.

In this session, XMOS explores the way in which the AIoT will change the face of life as we know it, and introduces their recently announced crossover processor for the AIoT – xcore.ai.

Engineering AI Track - AI in Industrial and Manufacturing
Poised for prime time and now enabled by the Industrial IoT, AI and machine learning offer manufacturers and industrial equipment makers the potential to tap into a rich stream of information to do everything from improving the consistency and quality of visual inspections to gaining key insights into operations. To fully reap the benefits, though, companies need not only the right technology but also must develop core analytical capabilities and leverage domain knowledge.
  • Gain insight into what it will take to accelerate adoption of AI in industrial and manufacturing applications and hear from experts on when it will likely become mainstream
  • Hear first-hand from companies about their successful AI applications and lessons learned
  • Learn about the steps to take to get started on your first AI use case and the building blocks you’ll need for use cases like visual inspection

Keynote: AI-Celerating R&D - Value and Impact in a Time of Convergence
While investment across the biopharma industry in R&D has been consistent or increased over the past 15 years, productivity has remained largely unchanged. Even with the projection that knowledge of medicine is doubling every 18 months, there must be better ways to understand biology and pathobiology and better ways to treat disease and manage healthcare.

Convergence, the result of the sharing of methods and ideas across multiple fields and industries, is the integration of insights and approaches from historically distinct scientific and technological disciplines. At AbbVie, our Convergence initiative seeks to create integrated R&D data and analytics capabilities that power data-driven insights – leading to better, faster decisions and therapies for patients. We are building a foundation for change, and setting out to double R&D productivity.

While hype alarms go off any time someone mentions Artificial Intelligence or ‘AI’, there are boundless opportunities to redefine AI – to engage it as the power of Automation and Insights – and drive value and impact in R&D. Tune in to this keynote to learn how AbbVie data scientists are helping our researchers scale the ladder of inference, how they are helping build foundations for growth and new capabilities, and how they are freeing up our people to perform higher value tasks. Ultimately guided by human empathy and experience, this will drive an increased ability to make a remarkable impact in the lives of patients.

Engineering AI Track - The Diabolical Challenge of Image Classification
In order for autonomous cars to perform even seemingly basic tasks, they will depend on AI and machine learning to make sense of the massive amounts of data generated by multiple, redundant sensors. The sheer processing power required means the realization of self-driving cars is likely still years away. But there are many examples of successful AI deployments today in autonomous vehicles such as drones and self-guided robotic vehicles (SGVs) that operate in radically more predictable environments.
  • Hear from companies who will discuss their real-world applications for AI in drones, robotic vehicle, and cars
  • Learn about the key AI building blocks for applications in autonomous technologies
  • Gain insight the technology advancements that are accelerating adoption of AI in autonomous technologies
