SDG 17: Seeed Provides TinyML Starter Kits and AIoT Trainings for ICTP’s “Asian Regional Workshop on Scientific Use of Machine Learning on Low-Power Devices”

Seeed is happy to sponsor TinyML Starter Kits, and provide free online AIoT trainings for “Asian Regional Workshop on SciTinyML: Scientific Use of Machine Learning on Low-Power Devices”, which is organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

Dear Community,

We’re happy to share the news that Seeed is happy to sponsor our TinyML Starter Kits (1 Wio Terminal and 2 Grove sensors) and provide free online AIoT trainings for “Asian Regional Workshop on SciTinyML: Scientific Use of Machine Learning on Low-Power Devices”, which is organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. For this Workshop, Seeed’s Product Marketing Manager, Momodou B Jallow, is invited to give interactive and hands-on lectures on how to use AIoT technologies from scratch:

   1️⃣ Seeed TinyML Kit Introduction and Interface to Edge Impulse (Day 2)

   2️⃣ Hands-on Training Session on Motion Classification and Anomaly Detection (Day 3)

   3️⃣ Hands-on Training Session on Sound and Keyword Spotting (KWS) (Day 4)

 

Co-sponsored by Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, and Seeed Studio, the Workshop will be spearheaded by Prof. Vijay Janapa Reddi from Harvard University, and Prof. Rosdiadee Nordin from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Why are we doing this? Aligned with the underlined values of Tiny Machine Learning Open Education Initiative (TinyMLedu) led by Prof. Vijay Janapa Reddi, Seeed is supporting this self-empowering initiative for the latest technological knowledge transfers, capacity building, and multi-stakeholder partnerships among developing countries for SDG 17:

“[TinyMLedu is] an international group of academics and industry professionals working to improve global access to educational materials for the cutting-edge field of TinyML. TinyML brings the transformative power of machine learning (ML) to the performance- and power-constrained domain of embedded systems. Successful deployment in this field requires knowledge of applications, algorithms, hardware, and software. TinyMLedu is hosted by the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in collaboration with the tinyML Foundation.” (TinyMLedu, n.d.)

SDG 17.6 on Technology: “Enhance North-South, South-South and triangular regional and international cooperation on and access to science, technology and innovation, and enhance knowledge sharing … through improved coordination among existing mechanisms … and through a global technology facilitation mechanism.”

SDG 17.9 on Capacity Building: “Enhance international support for implementing effective and targeted capacity-building in developing countries … North-South, South-South and triangular cooperation.”

SDG 17.16 on Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships: “Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology … to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries.” (UN, n.d.)

 

So, the Workshop will take place from June 6th through June 10th for 5 days, 3 hours each online, according to the Universal Time Coordinated (UTC):
