tinyML Talks: Developing TinyML Applications for the Real-World

We are excited to welcome you to UK in-person kick-off meetup at Makespace Classroom (Exclusive Use)
Address: 16 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RX · Cambridge

Join the hosts Alessandro Grande, Director of Product at Edge Impulse and Dominic Binks, VP Technology at Audio Analytic for an introduction to TinyML alongside some of the most interesting use cases.

After a year of successful online sessions, this is the first in-person event in the UK. The tinyML UK chapter has been built on the successes of the tinyML meetup groups in the US and around the world, offering the opportunity for members of the machine learning and embedded software communities to share ideas and network.

What is the purpose?
To spread the word and educate the industry on “tinyML” (broadly defined as machine learning architectures, devices, techniques, tools and approaches capable of performing on-device analytics for a variety of sensing modalities–vision, audio, motion, environmental, human health monitoring etc.) at “mW” or below power range targeting predominately battery operated devices. The tinyML meetup group is an informal monthly gathering of researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of machine learning technologies (hardware-algorithms/networks- software-application) at the extreme low-power regime to share latest developments in this fast growing field and promote collaborations throughout the ecosystem. The format will be presentations with Q&A followed by networking.

Who should join?
Experts in machine learning technologies at the edge, especially in the low power battery operated regime. This includes hardware architects, software engineers, systems engineers, ASIC designers, algorithms and application developers, low power sensor providers and end users. “Newbees”, i.e. people interested in joining this field and getting up to speed by listening to state-of-the-art presentations and interacting with established players are very welcome to join too, both from the industry and the academia.

Alessandro GRANDE, Director of Product

Edge Impulse

Alessandro is a physicist, an engineer, a community builder and a communicator with a visceral passion for connecting and empowering humans to build a more sustainable world through the aid of technology. Alessandro is the Director of Technology at Edge Impulse and co-organizes the tinyML Meetups in UK and Italy.

Prior to Edge Impulse, Alessandro worked at Arm as a developer evangelist and ecosystem manager with a focus on IoT and TinyML. While at Arm Alessandro launched a weekly live stream – Innovation Coffee with his colleague Robert Wolff.

Alessandro holds a master’s degree in nuclear physics from the University of Rome “La Sapienza”.

Dominic BINKS, VP of Technology

Audio Analytic

Dr. Dominic Binks was previously a Staff Engineer at Qualcomm working in a variety of different software roles prior to joining Audio Analytic. At Qualcomm in Cambridge, he worked on mShop, a BREW-based shopping application and Vuforia, Qualcomm’s cross-platform augmented reality SDK. In addition, Dominic spent time in San Diego working on Qualcomm’s core Android porting team with responsibility for the build and release team. Prior to Qualcomm, Dominic worked in technical presales at SavaJe, Android’s forerunner. Before joining SavaJe Dominic worked as a technical consultant at Scientific Generics (now Sagentia) and prior to this, he worked on pre-paid calling platforms deployed to a number of mobile operators worldwide. Dominic’s PhD investigated techniques for automating fault finding (debugging) in pieces of software.
