Date: 27th Feb 2019 , Time : 9:00 – 17:30

Across every industry, cameras are quickly proving to be the ultimate sensor for artificial intelligence in IoT applications. The demand for vision-based intelligence is unprecedented. To further drive our leadership in distributed AI solutions from camera to cloud, Intel has launched the OpenVINO™ toolkit, the latest offering in the comprehensive lineup of Intel® Vision Products that transform visual data into business insights. The OpenVINO™ toolkit is designed to fast-track development of high-performance computer vision solutions and deliver efficient deep learning inference across Intel silicon platforms. This toolkit offers developers the ability to simplify deployment of new computer vision applications for any business in any industry.

Developers are now using the OpenVINO™ toolkit and other Intel® Vision Products to easily port computer vision and deep learning inference solutions from a wide range of common software frameworks, such as TensorFlow, MXNet, and Caffe, to Intel processor and accelerator technologies, including Intel CPUs, Intel integrated graphics, Intel field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs),  and Intel® Movidius™ vision processing units (VPUs).

Join us for this one-day, hands-on workshop that will lead you through a computer vision workflow using the latest Intel® technologies and the Intel® OpenVINO™ toolkit.
