Workshop on Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and Edge-AI

This is your chance to grab one of the final few spots to attend a one-day AI-Workshop on 15 August at NUI Galway.

The workshop takes place just before the IEEE GEM conference ( and is targeted for SME’s interested in “Edge-AI” that is AI implemented on an embedded device.

It offers excellent value at 300 euro for a full-day, hands-on introduction to deep learning, including building a working AI framework on Raspberry PI with Movidius AI-stick. Delegates will also get to meet the PhD research team who are mostly focused on advancing state-of-art in Deep Learning systems.


Deep learning frameworks have reached the point where they can be used as tools in embedded electronics devices, allowing the production of “smart” products that are capable of recognizing objects and making decisions. This workshop introduces participants to the basics of practical deep learning, as well as an understanding of approaches and options for solving real-world problems. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to practice developing and deploying artificial intelligence models with the latest NVIDIA GPU’s, Raspberry PI and Movidius USB sticks using Python, Tensorflow, and Caffe. The workshop will include 2 hands-on lab sessions.

Target Audience

Researchers, engineers, computer programmers, technical managers & project leads who want to understand what deep learning is and how it can be used to bring intelligence to software and products, especially embedded systems and Internet-of-Things (“Edge”) devices.


  • A basic knowledge of Python or equivalent scripting language.
  • Some general programming experience.
  • A basic knowledge of unix/linux or equivalent command line interfaces.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will gain an understanding of the “pipeline” of a deep learning project, from training to the deployment of a model on a device as well as the hardware and software required.
  • Participants will be introduced to the abilities and limits of the latest techniques in artificial intelligence as applied to a selection of computer vision tasks.

There are still eight free places up for grabs so if you are an industry professional or SME who would like to attend, please sign up at this link
