Full day tutorial on Mobile DNNs / ML

In this full day of tutorials, industry experts will describe the state of the art in mobile deep learning and explain how to incorporate these techniques successfully in your research. Topics include how to use TensorFlow to achieve excellent deep learning results, especially on mobile platforms; how to apply novel AI techniques to support various forms of video analytics applications including traffic sensing; and how to apply machine learning techniques to the domain of mobile health sensing.

The presenters include:

  1. Dr. Aakanksha Chowdhery from Google Brain and Tensorflow. She will explain how to use Tensorflow to achieve excellent deep learning results - especially on mobile platforms.
  2. Dr. Ganesh Ananthanaryanan, Dr. Yunxin Liu and Dr. Yuanchao Shu from Microsoft Research who will explain how to apply novel AI techniques to support various forms of video analytics applications including traffic sensing.
  3. Professor Fahim Kawsar, Director of IoT Research at Bell Labs. UK who will explain how to apply machine learning techniques to the domain of mobile health sensing.
