The European Network of Excellence ‘dAIEDGE’ promotes the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on edge computing platforms – Fraunhofer IGD is one of the project partners. By combining edge computing and AI (Edge AI), devices can make decisions in a few milliseconds by processing data directly at the point of origin – without insecure connections, high latency, large energy overheads or costs due to transmission. Edge AI is therefore a pathfinder and accelerator for many new applications.
As part of the European Union’s initiative ‘European Network of AI Excellence Centres: Expanding the European AI Lighthouse’, the new network is intended to create a lighthouse within the international AI initiatives. dAIEDGE stands for “A network of excellence for distributed, trustworthy, efficient, and scalable AI at the Edge.
Under the leadership of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, experts in artificial intelligence, embedded computing, microprocessors, distributed hardware and software, computer science, and engineering will work closely together to mobilize the AI and edge community, connect al-on-demand platforms, digital innovation centers, and AI and Edge projects with relevant stakeholders, initiate European partnerships and projects, generation of Edge AI technologies.
