Tools, technologies and devices for AI

Date : Wednesday 22 may 2019

Lieu : Paris, Jussieu, room 105, Tour 26, hallway 26/25, first floor

Description :

The work in the field of artificial neural networks, which is at the core of modern Artificial Intelligence, brings together an increasingly larger community both from an application and integration points of view. Therefore, the needs in terms of design tools, low-power technologies and devices adapted to these parallel and distributed models become important.

This thematic day is intended to discuss and compare existing approaches to facilitate the integration of AI, and it is especially focused on embedded devices. It will be an opportunity to discuss the effective implementation of CNN, BNN but also bio-inspired models such as spiking networks. By using the tools, the technologies and the components suitable for these models, a first confrontation of these approaches will be possible. We are waiting for you in Paris to discuss with our guests on these many topics.
