IoT meets AI 2019 – IoT Protocols & Middleware by Soumya Kanti Datta (Eurecom)
Today’s most successful applications of AI are enabled by massive Machine Learning systems, especially from the domain of Deep Learning that besides scientific progress rely on a combination of two ingredients, computational power and huge amounts of labeled data. Not only do these demands have an increasing impact on our environment in terms of C02 emissions, the required labeled data amounts are a major bottleneck which limits the applicability of Deep Learning based AI to a broader market. Especially for the industrial domain where the data and problems are highly domain specific, this poses a major challenge, since the generated data can only be labeled by a few domain experts. This fact is opposed to the common domain, where basically anybody can label the data, e.g. decide if an image shows a cat or a dog. For this reason, one important aspect of industrial AI is to research methodologies that can deal with these data scarcity constraints.
