AI-SPRINT: An EU Perspective on the Future of AI and Edge Computing

AI-SPRINT: An EU Perspective on the Future of AI and Edge Computing

30 Mar 2021

 

Edge AI is rapidly gaining momentum with growing investments and awareness of its benefits, such as reducing costs and latency times for improved user experience and increased levels of security in terms of data privacy through local processing. 

Yet its full potential has yet to be realised. One way to achieve this is by combining various execution platforms for ubiquitous and seamless execution computing environments for a complete cloud continuum. As a result, application developers will have greater control over computing, network and data infrastructures and services and end-users will benefit from seamless access to continuous service environments. 

This webinar will zoom in on how AI-SPRINT is driving innovations in AI and edge computing as a research and innovation action under Europe’s Horizon 2020 programme. Lightning talks from key partners will give examples of new AI applications in edge and cloud environments, top challenges that need addresses and real-world scenarios aimed at proving competitive edge and replicability. 

The panel discussion brings together members of the AI-SPRINT Alliance and project experts for a deep-dive into the challenges, needs and future trends of AI and edge computing from various viewpoints. Participants will also get a chance to learn about the Alliance designed for small SW houses and EU cloud providers to support the AI and edge computing ecosystem while the interactive polls will capture viewpoints from the audience.
