tinyML Talks on December 7, 2021 “The Value of Edge AI for Industrial Applications: onsemi and SensiML IIoT Solutions” by Chris Rogers and Theo Kersjes

We held our next tinyML Talks webcast. Chris Rogers from SensiML Corp and Theo Kersjes from onsemi presented The Value of Edge AI for Industrial Applications: onsemi and SensiML IIoT Solutions on December 7, 2021.

In this session, onsemi and SensiML will cover the topic of edge AI models and why they can be greatly beneficial for industrial applications. Whether process monitoring and optimization, or predictive maintenance to prevent costly downtime, the ROI for Edge AI is arguably strongest within the industrial sector.

What you will learn:

  • Why sensor analytics at the extreme edge is an important advancement for connected IIoT deployments;
  • Example use cases within the industrial sector that have clear and high return on investment;
  • Details of the onsemi and SensiML edge sensing platform and how it can transform the ability of Industry 4.0 innovators to gain critical insights.
