How to make AI faster, cheaper, and smaller at the edge for 5G and IOT – with Jags Kandasamy, Latent AI

How to make AI faster, cheaper, and smaller at the edge for 5G and IOT – with Jags Kandasamy, Latent AI

Neural networks can be made faster, cheaper, and smaller. This can result in higher performing and lower cost operation of complex AI applications at the edge of the network –where ever that edge might be such as a factory, vehicle, ship, or other remote location.  In this episode, hear Jags Kandasamy explain how Latent AI’s development platform helps customers and suppliers in every industry compress and adapt neural networks to run “at the edge” and how this ultimately speeds up application development and delivery, as well as improves the performance of the AI application itself. Also we’ll touch on the relationship between Edge AI, and 5G.
