Webinar: Digi-Key hails tipping point for “AI Anywhere”

Webinar: Digi-Key hails tipping point for “AI Anywhere”

As well as covering the challenges involved with implementing Edge AI, the webinar introduces the AI microcontroller MAX78000 and considers new use cases for AI.

Presented by Kristopher Ardis, executive director of the security, software & processors group at ADI, it will run on Thursday 7 April, at 11 a.m. (CDT).  In his current role, he is responsible for Edge Artificial Intelligence accelerators, Secure Microcontrollers and Low Power Microcontrollers at the company.

“We’ve reached an exciting point where AI technology is now small enough, fast enough, and energy efficient enough to be embedded anywhere,” said Mike Foy, senior product manager of semiconductors at Digi-Key. “We’re excited to offer Analog Devices’ cutting-edge AI accelerators so our customers can take advantage of all of the new capabilities of this technology.”

To attend the webinar, submit a registration form. If you can’t attend the live webinar, Digi-Key will send the recording after the event to those who register.

“Implementing AI at the edge, particularly for machine vision and hearing, has never been practical,” said ADI’s Kristopher Ardis. “The mathematical computations needed to answer questions like ‘What am I looking at?’ or ‘What word did I just hear?’ take up too much time and energy to be used in small, power-constrained devices.”

“The MAX78000 changes that – now the advanced AI computations take less than 1% of the time and energy needed by other embedded micros, meaning that even coin-cell or energy-harvested devices can make use of AI.”
