From ASUS Press Release: ASUS today announced the AIoT Forward webinar series, which will feature a full array of ASUS IoT solutions and promote understanding among the industry of the brand’s AI and IoT offerings. One webinar will air each day from March 22 to March 26.
ASUS AI, IoT and edge-computing solutions are empowering customers and advancing the digital transformation known as Industry 4.0. In recent years, ASUS has leveraged significant advantages in research and development to actively expand IoT offerings and develop advanced AI technology. This webinar series showcases the extraordinary progress made in this endeavor — the best AIoT solutions ASUS has to offer, spanning edge AI technology, smart retail, smart manufacturing and smart healthcare — and advances the brand’s vision of being an AIoT ecosystem provider in each vertical.
The future of AI: The latest edge AI solutions from ASUS IoT
ASUS IoT will hold two product introduction webinars for new edge AI solutions during the AIoT Forward series. The first webinar will be hosted in collaboration with Microsoft on March 22 and will premiere Azure Percept DK and Azure Percept Audio, two new edge AI platforms developed by ASUS and Microsoft. Azure Percept DK is a development kit that is optimized to work with Azure AI, Azure Machine Learning and Azure IoT management services. Azure Percept DK can be further enhanced by Azure Percept Audio, an audio-enabled system-on-module (SoM) hardware accelerator with a preconfigured four-mic linear array, for creating customized speech functions. ASUS and Microsoft have partnered to create these new edge AI solutions that bridge physical interactions with the cloud for real-time decision making, offering a seamless way to approach AI at the edge.
The final webinar in this series will take place on March 26 and will explore different applications of running AI at the edge — from prototype to production — using ASUS AI Accelerator Card and edge devices integrated with Coral Edge TPU™. A product lead from the Coral AI team at Google will join the webinar to give an in-depth introduction to the Coral platform, which is a holistic approach to on-device AI from Google. Session attendees will learn how ASUS IoT solutions using the Edge TPU deliver real value in business, allowing managers to make better decisions and optimize production efficiency.
Smart retail solutions
Smart retail solutions — that is, smart technologies that give consumers better, faster, safer and smarter shopping experiences — have become critically important with the recent rise in contactless retail. The webinar on March 23 will detail numerous ASUS IoT solutions created to enhance customer experiences, optimize supply chains and create revenue streams.
Smart manufacturing solutions
The webinar on March 24 will showcase the comprehensive portfolio of ASUS IoT solutions that are tailor-made for manufacturing applications and essential use cases, including AI-driven predictive maintenance of single assets, AI-powered automated optical inspection, production optimization, surveillance and physical threat detection. These solutions reduce costs, increase safety and security, improve quality assurance and facilitate regulatory compliance. They also result in greater overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) to improve efficiency and, ultimately, profits.
Smart healthcare solutions
The March 25 webinar will cover the wide variety of ASUS smart healthcare solutions. ASUS provides holistic healthcare devices and services, with a particular focus on electronic and mobile health services. These solutions include intelligent medical devices, mobile apps, client and cloud platforms and AI-enhanced healthcare technology. ASUS also develops solutions for enhancing management of electronic medical records for both inpatient and outpatient care, as well as innovations for improving telecare.
Prizes for webinar attendees
Participants will have the chance to win a prize from ASUS IoT at each webinar, if they attend the webinar for at least 20 minutes. Each webinar will have one winner, and the more webinars an attendee joins, the more chances they have to win. Prizes include a VivoWatch, Mini PC PN62S, ROG Delta headset, Tinker Edge T and Azure Percept DK. The lucky winners will be announced on the event website on March 29.
 Online webinar platform will be Cisco Webex. Please register with Webex for each individual webinar to receive the invitation code needed.
