AI Hardware Summit Europe | Kisaco Research

The ecosystem event for AI hardware acceleration in Europe

Munich, Germany
10-11 March, 2020

“I think this conference is turning out to be great in the sense that the density of companies attending it is phenomenal. All of the top notch companies are here, not fully disclosing what they’re doing but at least you get their philosophy and you get some insight from the CEOs and CTOs.”

Marc Tremblay, Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft

Why Attend

After three successful events (two in the US, one in China) we’re delighted to be bringing the AI Hardware Summit to Munich. We’ve been honoured with previous keynote speakers such as Dr. John L. Hennessey, Chairman of Alphabet, Lip-Bu Tan, CEO of Cadence Systems and Naveen Rao, CVP & GM of Intel’s AIPG. 

Europe is struggling to keep up with developments in machine learning at the same pace as the US and China, where many of the top labs are located and investments are significantly larger. Due to its academic strength in AI, the potential for Europe to catch up in AI research is massive and could add enormous value to its combined economic output. Institutes like the ELLIS Society are working closely with top European academics to enable Europe to perform the best fundamental AI research, but there is still a large gap in GDP investment when compared to the US and China. 

Given Europe’s strength in automation across industrial, robotics and autonomous vehicles manufacturing, this summit will focus on inference systems in edge computing, connecting these industries through common challenges in systems architecture/engineering. The AI Hardware Summit Europe will bring together key players across the AI hardware ecosystem to promote innovation and adoption of systems & silicon for processing AI.

After the acquisition of Open-Plug by Alcatel-Lucent, Eric Baissus became VP R&D and VP Innovation of Alcatel-Lucent Application Enablement and was located at Palo Alto USA. In 2014, Eric returned in Europe and joined Kalray, a French spin-off of CEA research lab,  as CEO. In 4 years, he turned Kalray into the pioneer of intelligent processors. As a real technological breakthrough, “intelligent” processors have the capability to analyze on the fly, and in an intelligent manner, a very large amount of information, and make decisions and interact in real-time with the outside world. These intelligent processors will be extensively deployed in fast-growing sectors such as new-generation networks (intelligent data centers) and autonomous vehicles, as well as healthcare equipment, drones and robots. Kalray listed on Euronext Growth in June 2018, and raised around 44 Million Euros, the largest fund raising on Euronext Growth since its inception.

Passionate about new technologies and about turning high-tech innovation into business, Eric Baissus occupies several board positions.  He graduated from Ecole Polytechnique (Paris France) and Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications (Paris France).
