Abstract: The talk will be given by an experienced practitioner in this field that has delivered over 30 revenue generating deep tech products, has earned numerous patents & significant international awards, has spent over a decade as a professor in this field at universities such as Stanford in California, and is currently the founder & CTO of a ventures backed deep tech startup company.
This talk will be a case study driven conversation through the delivery of an advanced computer vision edge AI/ML for dynamic, complex and harsh work environments.
It will commence with a brief discussion of the tech for the sake of context. The bulk of their talk with then focus on the primary points of friction that were encountered when introducing this technology into existing businesses.
The key takeaways for attendees of the talk will be actionable insights on how to navigate the common issues technologies such as these face during this vital delivery phase.
