Edge Computing for 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). 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.

Learning Outcomes

After the workshop participants would have understanding of:

  • Edge computing for computer vision (E4CV)
  • Working of edge devices
  • Developing and deploying AI models on OpenCV AI Kit with depth (OAK-D)
  • Various real world use cases and applications of E4CV

Who Should Attend

Students or Professionals that have:

  • An interest in Computer Vision and Edge Computing.
  • Basic understanding of AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning concepts.
  • Developing and deploying AI models on OpenCV AI Kit with depth (OAK-D)
  • Experience of using Python and associated libraries like OpenCV, scikit-learn, Tensorflow etc./span>

E4CV Workshop Feedback

Mughees Qasim

The instructors have good communication skills and the good thing is that they are taking everybody with them. If someone got stuck at the task, they wait for them. The lab environment is not boring, the instructors are not just bombarding us with instructions. The instructors are friendly and I think this is the best thing for a healthy learning environment.
