The Summit attracts a global audience of companies developing vision-enabled products including embedded systems, cloud solutions and mobile applications.
Join us for three days of learning—from tutorials to deep-dive days, covering the latest technical insights, business trends and vision technologies—all with a focus on practical, deployable computer vision and visual AI. The Summit connects the theories from great academic conferences, like CVPR, to the concrete needs of innovators building real-world products.
Most conferences are run by media or marketing companies whose specialty is, well, running as many conferences as they can—usually without any particular expertise in the subject matter.
The Embedded Vision Summit is run by BDTI and the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. It’s the only conference we run. Our whole focus is the technology and business of edge AI and vision—it’s what we do, every day. For almost 30 years, BDTI’s engineers have designed, implemented and optimized algorithms on embedded systems, and for the last decade, our primary focus has been AI and computer vision at the edge.
We bring that expertise to the Summit each year. When we put together the Summit, we sweat every detail, asking ourselves, “If I were an attendee, what would I need to know? What critical questions do I need answered?” And we set about recruiting the best speakers with the most relevant expertise to answer those questions.
In essence: We build the conference that we’d like to attend, as technology and business innovators in this field.
Our target audience is people incorporating computer vision and edge AI into products. They’re a practical bunch; they want to know what they can do today to build those products, and what’s coming tomorrow for next year’s products. We’re right there with them, and that’s the conference we’ve created.
This year will mark the 11th year of the Embedded Vision Summit. We’ve come a long way from our first event with a handful of talks and some demos in a hotel lobby in 2012. Over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two about delivering a high-quality conference for our attendees.
Every year we survey our attendees, and even with the shift to our first virtual conference in 2020, 97% of attendees say they’d recommend this event to a colleague.
In order to deliver real-world insights and know-how into the most current topics in the industry to our attendees, we have packed the program with learning opportunities, including:
Speakers and Sessions: Learn from the best and listen to over 100 expert speakers who actively work in the industry present on the latest applications, techniques, technologies and opportunities in computer vision and visual AI.
Expert Bars: Discover new or existing technologies by exploring topics ranging from challenges in specific industries (e.g., retail and industrial) to broadly applicable techniques—all while having technical experts there to answer your questions.
50+ Exhibitors and Hundreds of Demos: Visit the exhibitors on the exhibit floor and see their latest technologies that enable vision-based capabilities—processors, algorithms, software, sensors, developer tools, services and more! You’ll get to see technology in action by watching cool demos from building-block component suppliers to learn about new and existing solutions to your business and engineering challenges.
Enabling Technologies Track: If you’re a product developer, engineer or business leader looking for real-world, commercial technologies that will help you add visual intelligence and AI to your new products, you’ll want to attend this track’s sessions. You can see things, like:
Building valuable business connections is crucial. At the Summit you can connect with engineers, marketers, executives—they’re all here! Here’s how:
Just added this year… Edge AI Deep Dive Day! Please join us for one or more of these special, in-depth sessions. Think of each one as an event-within-an-event. Each Deep Dive will be a 3-hour session focused on a specific topic in visual AI at the edge. During the session, you’ll enjoy one of our various formats (presentation, panel discussion, etc.). Then, follow it up with a bite to eat, a bit of networking and some great demos. Sessions will be posted in the coming weeks, so keep checking back!
Note: Edge AI Deep Dive Day takes place on Thursday, May 19, after the main two days of the Summit. Each Deep Dive requires separate registration and must be purchased separately from your Summit pass.
More than 1,400 decision-makers, including engineers, engineering managers and executives from companies like these!
Watch for updates as we finalize the program.
