Ubiquitous Machines Learning for Design and Implementation of Energy-Efficient Electrical Systems: A Wide Range of Uses and Applications

#AI #Energy-Efficient #Machines #Learning

IEEE Industry Relations Committee (on behalf of IEEE Canada) would like to invite you to attend the Webinar "Ubiquitous Machines Learning for Design and Implementation of Energy-Efficient Electrical Systems: A Wide Range of Uses and Applications"

The objective of this webinar is to discuss how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can play a significant role in several applications in electrical engineering. The webinar intends to provide an update/overview of the recent trends and advances of AI research and to open a dialog on how to address the challenges faced in the design of energy-efficient electrical systems. Several pathways to innovate through electronic systems design will be discussed through a series of ongoing projects.
