Europe is struggling to keep up with developments in machine learning at the same pace as the US and China, where many of the top labs are located and investments are significantly larger. Due to its academic strength in AI, the potential for Europe to catch up in AI research is massive and could add enormous value to its combined economic output. Institutes like the ELLIS Society are working closely with top European academics to enable Europe to perform the best fundamental AI research, but there is still a large gap in GDP investment when compared to the US and China.
Given Europe’s strength in automation across industrial, robotics and autonomous vehicles manufacturing, this summit focused on inference systems in edge computing, connecting these industries through common challenges in systems architecture/engineering. The AI Hardware Summit Europe brought together key players across the AI hardware ecosystem to promote innovation and adoption of systems & silicon for processing AI.
EPI's partner Kalray attended and its CEO, Eric Baissus, gave an invited talk.
