Presented by NVIDIA


On the third day of Transform 2020, the IoT, AI at the Edge, and Computer Vision Summit presented by NVIDIA underscored the tremendous promise of these technologies. IoT is being leveraged in more transformative ways than ever, the limits of compute power on devices keep getting pushed, and computer vision models are becoming faster and more accurate.

But innovation also brings new challenges. Leaders from NVIDIA, BMW, Pinterest, Intel, Uber, and Red Hat among others gathered to talk about the most important new use cases and the most urgent issues: from ensuring greater user privacy to enabling lower latency, accelerating better search and personalization, advancing automation, delivering real-time intelligence, and more.

Implementing new AI technologies also brings new responsibilities like security, governance, accuracy, and explainability, as well as a major focus on eliminating biases around race and gender.
