We held our first tinyML Trailblazers Series. Kurt Busch from Syntiant presented tinyML Success Stories with Kurt Busch on January 19, 2022.
In addition to popular tinyML Talks (which are deeply technical in nature), we are excited to start new webcast series, tinyML Trailblazers, uncovering Success Stories in the tinyML World.
As tinyML continues its strong growth, there are more and more inspirational stories to be shared with the Community by its “movers & shakers”. These monthly LIVE and INTERACTIVE tinyML events will bring tinyML Masterminds, those who pioneer the field and make a significant impact, in an informal conversation/interview hosted by Dr. Chris Rowen, a renown Silicon Valley technologist and entrepreneur, and a tinyML innovator. They will share their stories of developing game changing tinyML technologies and innovations, applications, products and companies, as well as setting new research directions and revealing future vision.
Our next guest will be Kurt Busch of Syntiant Corp who is the chief executive officer of Syntiant Corp. He has extensive experience in product development, having driven the successful launch of new products, ranging from SaaS and semiconductors for telecom and broadcast video to consumer electronics and data center systems.
