As AI applications at the edge become pervasive, there’s growing interest in deploying AI on standard hardware platforms such as general-purpose CPUs. But are CPUs sufficient? In this roundtable discussion, we’ll explore the question: Does AI really require GPUs and other special-purpose architectures, or can today’s standard CPUs do the job? We’ll look at cutting-edge applications in healthcare and video analytics to take a full-circle view of all the factors—including but not limited to performance—that impact real-world commercialization. Please join moderator Gary Brown of Intel and special guests Sheldon Fernandez of DarwinAI and AJ Frazer of AgentVi for this provocative roundtable discussion.
