报告题目：Applications and Future Trend of Cloud Computing in AI and Robotics
内容简介：Cloud computing provides abundant resources and computing power, which is Internet based computing infrastructure. It in turn enables today’s AI and intelligent robots to service us everywhere, namely cloud AI and robots. Through wired or wireless networks, AI algorithms and autonomous robots can access cheap and readily available information in the cloud and receive commands via communication networks for their remote operation. The system reliability should be guaranteed so that AI and autonomous robots in the cloud can be accessed by their users 24 hours a day and 7 days a week with minimum maintenance. This talk briefly overviews the key challenges and opportunities of cloud AI and robotic systems in real-world applications. The recent development of tele-healthcare, remote environment monitoring and swarm robotics at Essex is introduced, and some preliminary results are demonstrated via video.
