Artificial intelligence (AI), and neural networks (NN) in particular, is emerging as a key disruptive technology with a wide range of applications in different markets and segments. It enables a new class of smart cameras with advanced video analytics, abnormal behaviour detection, object and people recognition, to name a few applications. Implementing NNs in a camera SoC is particularly challenging due to the increased power consumption, memory bandwidth and silicon area required. This webinar provides a market overview of NNs in the smart camera space, including applications and trends.

It then focuses on the key SoC implementation challenges, technical requirements for a deployable and efficient solution and how these requirements can be addressed with innovative new hardware acceleration technologies.
