Edge Computing for Computer Vision

With edge computing, we are able to bring the processing of the images or video much closer to their source. This will address latency, bandwidth and privacy concerns. And by doing so increases the art of what’s possible with computer vision.

A five days workshop on “Edge Computing for Computer Vision” is being conducted with a focus on harnessing the power of computer vision on the edge.  We can tackle real world computer vision problems from edge computing using edge devices like Raspberry Pi, NVIDIA Jetson Nano, OpenCV AI Kit e.t.c.  This workshop is being conducted on an AI-enabled camera kit called OpenCV AI Kit with Depth (OAK-D). Special Thanks to OpenCV for providing us with the OAK-D Kits. The participants will be able to use OAK-D and deploy computer vision models on them. OAK-D is a spatial AI powerhouse, capable of simultaneously running advanced neural networks while providing depth from two stereo cameras and color information from a single 4K camera in the center.
