Distributed AI Solutions and Technologies for IoT

Speaker: Dinesh Verma
Distributed AI, IBM Watson

Talk Abstract:  Many applications of IoT can benefit from the use of AI technologies. However, the AI solutions for this domain need to be implemented in a distributed manner, instead of following a centralized model of sending data to a single location, in the cloud or the data center. In this talk, we will discuss some AI enabled solutions for IoT that have been implemented within IBM Research, our experiences in building those solutions, the need for distributed AI in those solutions, and the approaches that we are exploring to applying distributed AI techniques to those IoT solutions.
