tinyML Trailblazers: tinyML Success Stories with Mouna Elkhatib

In addition to popular tinyML Talks (which are deeply technical in nature), we are excited to start new webcast series, tinyML Trailblazers, uncovering Success Stories in the tinyML World.

As tinyML continues its strong growth, there are more and more inspirational stories to be shared with the Community by its “movers & shakers”. These monthly LIVE and INTERACTIVE tinyML events will bring tinyML Masterminds, those who pioneer the field and make a significant impact, in an informal conversation/interview hosted by Dr. Chris Rowen, a renown Silicon Valley technologist and entrepreneur, and a tinyML innovator. They will share their stories of developing game changing tinyML technologies and innovations, applications, products and companies, as well as setting new research directions and revealing future vision.

Our next guest will be Mouna Elkhatib, CEO, CTO, and Co-Founder of AONDevices, Inc. An industry expert in voice and audio processing, Mouna has over 20 years of experience in semiconductor technology with a successful track record in engineering and leadership. Prior to AONDevices, Mouna architected and led the development of industry leading voice and audio semiconductor solutions for smartphones, PCs, smart speakers, and Internet of Things (IoT) at Qualcomm and Conexant.
