Tech Tuesday on Edge Intelligence


April 4, 2023    
8:30 am - 9:30 am


Kista Sciene CIty
Borgarfjordsgatan 12, Kista

Edge computing is a new computing paradigm to address several shortcomings of currently deployed cloud computing services. It brings computing power closer to users where data is produced or need processing. Edge is a prerequisite for many technological advancements and application domains, including autonomous vehicles, Industry 4.0, and smart cities.

In this short presentation, Javid Taheri will talk about edge computing and its ties to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). The presentation starts from basics and gradually advances to how AI and ML concepts can help, or benefit from, edge computing platforms. The presentation also covers current industrial and academic challenges, as well as the most relevant research topics.

Welcome to Tech Tuesday! Our monthly breakfast event for the tech community in Kista to get an inside perspective and learn about cutting-edge trends from researchers and developers in Kista. This month’s meeting is hosted by Stockholm University.
