Pete Warden

Pete Warden is a technical lead on TensorFlow, Google's open source machine learning framework, and was previously CTO of Jetpac, a startup focused on deep learning that was acquired by Google in 2014. He's the author of the TinyML book from O'Reilly publishing, is on Twitter as @petewarden, and previously worked at Apple.

The Past, Present, and Future of Embedded Machine Learning

Pete Warden, from Google's TensorFlow Lite Micro project, will be talking about how machine learning on embedding devices began, and where it's heading. ML has been deployed to microcontrollers and DSPs for many years, but until recently it has been a niche solution for very particular problems. As deep learning has revolutionized the analysis of messy sensor data from cameras, microphones, and accelerometers it has begun to spread across many more applications. He will discuss how voice interfaces are leading the charge for ML on low-power, cheap devices, and what other uses are coming. He'll also look into the future of embedded machine learning to try to predict how hardware, software and applications will be evolving over the next few years.
