tinyML Talks on October 14, 2021 “Chasing cows: Making Africa smarter with embedded ML” by Jan Jongboom

October 14 forum

Embedded machine learning has the potential to give sensors a real understanding of the world. Anything from detecting whether a cow is getting sick, knowing whether tomatoes are growing properly, to seeing when an elephant gets too close to a village - all without having a human involved. In this talk Jan Jongboom, the CTO of Edge Impulse will talk about problems he saw while visiting East Africa, how machine learning can help in agriculture and conservation, why power consumption matters, and you’ll learn why he was running after cows on a dairy farm in Tanzania.

Jan Jongboom is an embedded engineer and machine learning advocate, always looking for ways to gather more intelligence from the real world. He has shipped devices, worked on the latest network tech, simulated microcontrollers and there’s a monument in San Francisco with his name on it. Currently, he serves as the co-founder and CTO of Edge Impulse, the leading development platform for embedded machine learning with 30,000+ projects.
