    Fireside Chat
    Supporting computer vision in IoT, at the edge of the network, can add functionality and features that IoT have been promising. We will chat with companies who are building edge devices on their thoughts about the challenges and opportunities around adding vision to IoT.

    Panel: Should We Take CV To The Edge?
    Our panel on Computer Vision (CV) will focus on the juncture of the latest tech in sensors, and the intelligence that adds CV onto that sensor data. How much of the CV is done in sensor, and how much centrally? How much is part of fleet learning, but used for generating heuristics as opposed to actually happening in each individual vehicle? We'll hear from the companies building the tech.
