Come join developers from PointR and IBM to learn what we're doing to build the development platform for artificial intelligence, and how that platform has been leveraged to build and find insights.

Several years under development, PointR Data Inc., ( brings a wireless mesh compute network to the edge. The low-power, high performance sensor and compute hub fabric provides machine vision inferencing for autonomous retail stores, warehouse logistics, transportation inspection and surveillance use cases. Called the PointR CUBE, the wireless mesh hub packs cluster of tiny AI accelerators with tightly integrated frameworks that enable developers to create and launch multi-stage pipelined deep neural networks that were trained on IBM Power hardware and infrastructure software.

Learn about PointRr ( they leveraged deep learning and GPU computing, and see a live demo.

You'll walk away with:
•An overview of the AI landscape
•A guide to PointR's SDKs
•A guide to Deep Learning and GPU Computing in the Cloud
•Resources to get started with IBM's AI Platforms
