Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing will be a critical driver of digital transformation. This inter-disciplinary domain can bring significant quality, productivity and cost benefits across sectors. Today’s manufacturing environment is replete with hundreds of signals with petabytes of data. To get the highest ROI from Industry 4.0, the critical success-factor is to make sense of these signals. This seminar will focus on benefits and challenges of system-level ultra-low power sensing, ingesting high-frequency signals, as well as high SNR inferencing with AI/ML.
