Embedded Technology Conference China, 2020

2020 Embedded Technology Conference: Embedded AI Under the Spotlight

AIoT, represented by autonomous driving, intelligent robotic and smart security, is now under the spotlight of technical innovation in Information Technology. The deployment of 5G will also boost device-side intelligence. While AIoT is a technically combination of AI technology and IoT device, it is also a realization of AI and IoT in application scenarios. Embedded technology provides an important platform for AI.

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information indicated in their 2019-2020 Report of Talents in the AI Industry that there is a general shortage of talents in AI, and that there is a misalignment between current labor force ability and market demand. AI development engineer, system/platform engineer and software engineer are among the top 10 job posts of the most severe shortages; they represent new possibilities of embedded system engineers.

Embedded AI is in the spotlight during the 2020 Embedded Technology Conference. This year the event consisted of one main event and 4 sub-forums, spanning over 2 days. With 27 keynote sessions, the event this year aimed for broader and deeper technical coverage.

Embedded Technology Conference expert committee member and ESBF secretary in chief Allan He gave a passionate opening speech, Beijing Institute of Technology Professor Hongbin Ma’s speech was titled “Embedded AI and AI Chip”, and Hunan University Associate Professor Guoqi Xie’s delivered keynote “Automobile Embedded System Development: Theories and Solutions”. Three CEOs of embedded system startups: Puxiang Xiong of RT-Thread, Shenzhen SDJ Tech’s Luye Wang and Beijing Gonlon Electronic Technology’s Tianxiao Lin spoke about IoT OS, RISC-V and micro MCU programming; entrepreneurship in embedded industry is key to innovation.

Embedded Technology Conference expert committee member and South China University of Technology Associate Professor Sheng Bi hosted the “Embedded AI and Application” sub-forum, experts from Arm China, Huawei, Imagination and Huaqing Yuanjian talked about AI chip, GPU acceleration, MindSpore AI application and embedded AI education.

The conference was held by CETimes, ESBF and Dianziq, together we aim to build a platform in southern China, greater China area, and Asia-Pacific region to socialize about embedded technology and products; we also hope contribute to continuous innovation in China’s electronic and information industries.
