Machine Learning from the Cloud to the IoT

Machine Learning and the IoT are a match made in heaven. After all, IoT devices collect mountains of sensor data, what better way to uncover insights and actions than through sophisticated, modern computing methods like ML and AI?

Machine Learning

The problem is, leveraging ML with IoT has historically meant backhauling all your sensor data to the Cloud. When the cloud is involved, security is a concern, and in the realm of IoT, security is often a dirty word.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to leverage the power of Machine Learning on Edge Devices and build secure, cloud-independent IoT applications.
