Artificial Intelligence and the Need for Speed

Cadence Vision DSP and AI for Energy (and Basketball too!)

This week’s episode of Fish Fry is all about artificial intelligence, machine vision, and basketball! Pulin Desai (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss a couple of use cases that require a mix of both vision and artificial intelligence and why our “need for speed” has pushed for new design requirements in the mobile, AR/VR, surveillance, automotive and drone/robotics markets. We also dive into the details of a thesis by Simone Francia at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia that uses deep learning to classify basketball player actions on the court. Keeping with our AI theme this week, we’ll take a look at a plan to protect the US power grid with AI-powered tower-mounted robots.
