Panelist: Over the edge AI – startups making breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity

A quick update on one of my activities during World Summit AI in Amsterdam. XPRIZE hosted a panel discussion on “Over the edge AI – startups making breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity”. I was proud to be on stage with other IBM Watson AI XPRIZE team members and the moderators from the XPRIZE Foundation, Amir and Devin! I think it was an interesting discussion and we had a good turnout.

I was able to capture this photo of the opening of the show this morning. It was quite the big production, and the conference appears to be about full!

The program today should be exciting, but I need to head out to prepare for the panel discussion and workshop with the XPRIZE team this afternoon.

Expressive Robot Head: Automatic Face Tracking & Gaze Direction Estimation for Animated AI Avatar

Expressive Robot Head: Automatic Face Tracking & Gaze Direction Estimation for Animated AI Avatar

We’re defining the technology needed to operate an expressive robot head, including the use of the Intel OpenVINO framework to run face gaze detection algorithms to be used for automatic servo control for maintaining ‘virtual’ eye contact between animated avatar and our user. This project supports our entry into the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE competition.
