Mr Guru Nagarajan, Android Things Lead – Google | Topic: Expanding sensors utilization and use cases with machine learning
Sensors have helped revolutionize the way people interact with their electronics by bridging the gap between today’s devices and the external world. Inertial sensors tell your car airbag when to deploy and make sure your cell phone screen is orientated properly. Future applications will continue to require higher performance, smaller form factor, and lower power at lower cost. While we know this and also know the invisible impact sensors have had in numerous device classes, the use of existing sensors data and the application of machine learning to further enhance the benefits is underutilized. We will explore some use cases where the combination of sensors and the application of machine learning improve the overall quality of the data and the underlying benefits.
