element14, an Avnet Community, is hosting a webinar to educate its members on Edge Impulse’s newly developed technique, “Faster Objects, More Objects” (FOMO), that performs constrained object detection on low-power devices, such as microcontrollers.

FOMO provides the location of target objects in an image but does not give arbitrary bounding box information about the size or distance of objects. As a result, it requires up to 30x less processing power and memory than MobileNet V2 SSD or YOLOv5. In this webinar, we will describe object detection, how FOMO works, and provide a live demonstration of constrained object detection on a microcontroller.

The webinar will take place on September 6, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. (Chicago Time).

Join this webinar to learn more about:

  • Overview of popular image processing techniques using machine learning
    • Image classification
    • Object detection
    • Image segmentation
  • Constrained object detection (FOMO)
    • Architecture
    • Use cases
    • Limitations
  • FOMO demo with OpenMW

Register and ask engaging questions during the webinar for a chance to win a Nicla Vision Board!

Following the presentation, there will be a short quiz to test your knowledge. Complete the quiz and watch the presentation live or watch the recording On Demand to earn a certificate.
