AI/ML at the Extreme Edge with WebAssembly: A Path Forward - Michael Tanenbaum, Mycelial

In his seminal speech of 2017 entitled “The End of Cloud Computing,” Andreesen Horowitz Partner Peter Levine voiced what practitioners before and since have come to appreciate with ever increasing urgency: the amount of data produced by IoT devices (the extreme Edge) far outpaces the bandwidth available to centralize that data in Cloud Native data solutions. And how can we serve our AI/ML model from the Cloud when (not if) we lose connectivity? We need to inference at the Edge, but how? How can we deliver AI/ML on devices with tiny processing power? And how can we manage the Day 2 operations of these solutions, especially as we ask AI/ML to make critical decisions impacting human health and safety? Come learn why the properties of WebAssembly (WASM) present a uniquely perfect fit for the delivery of secure AI/ML at the extreme Edge. Michael will explore a case study on delivering a Tensorflow model compiled to WASM on a highly constrained device at scale, as well as the challenges therein — using a FOSS stack. Michael will conclude with the current state-of-the-art, fast-moving areas of R&D, and areas ripe for greater community involvement as we progress into a future soon at-hand; a future where AI/ML at the extreme Edge abounds, surrounds, and (sometimes) confounds.
