Event Time: 5:30 p.m.

CALIT2 Building Auditorium, UC Irvine



Machine Learning is currently one of the hottest topics in IT. That's because of the unlimited ways it can have an impact: from fraud detection to self-driving cars, from identifying gold card customers to price prediction. CALIT2's semiannual Igniting Technology program will feature industry and academic experts discussing machine learning hardware trends, from semiconductor chip design to novel approaches in system architecture. Learn how the emerging data engineering infrastructure is making machine learning easily accessible to scientists and program developers.

Join us for CALIT2's signature Igniting Technology program on Thursday, May 24, 2018 to:

  • Learn how far machine learning has come in recent years and where it is headed
  • Explore emerging system architecture approaches from cutting-edge startups
  • Understand edge devices and how the latest microelectronic advances can move machine learning from the cloud to these distributed edges
  • Discover why machine learning is a rich field for innovation and investment
  • See what CALIT2 is doing to provide unparalleled data engineering infrastructure support
