TDK to present on machine learning at tinyML Summit

March 21, 2023

TDK Corporation (TSE 6762) announced today that it will give two presentations and participate in a panel at the 2023 tinyML Summit being held March 27-29 at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California. The Summit is a gathering of key tinyML members from all aspects of the ecosystem encompassing the expanding breadth of industries within the tinyML technology and application space.

Al Heshmati, VP of Systems and Software, TDK U.S.A Corporation, will be speaking at 9:45 am PT on Tuesday, March 28th on the trajectory from custom intelligent sensors to broad market adoption of smart platforms. Mr. Heshmati will be exploring the widespread adoption of smart sensor platforms that require seamless availability and optimized interworking of end-to-end elements from tool-chains to readily-available ML-enabled hardware platforms. Mr. Heshmati will also participate in a panel later that afternoon at 4:00 pm PT titled “tinyML Application Throwdown: What application area has the most potential?”

Stephanie Pavlick, Machine Learning Engineer, Qeexo, a TDK group company, will be presenting a case study at 4:45 pm PT on Wednesday, March 29th on how a consumer goods company leverages Qeexo’s AutoML to accelerate data science adoption and value. Qeexo has developed novel assisted segmentation technology focused on event-type time-series sensor data. Qeexo has collaborated closely with leaders at the consumer goods company to leverage Qeexo’s AutoML as a tool to lower activation energy, helping enable this broad innovator community to develop, manage and deploy new algorithms. Some of these include: an assisted segmentation feature to aid customers in quickly and efficiently labeling large amounts of data, model size reduction, data augmentation to represent possible variations of a collected dataset, and more.

  • AutoML: Automated machine learning is the process of automating the tasks of applying machine learning to real-world problems
  • tinyML: Tiny machine learning is broadly defined as a fast-growing field of machine learning technologies that can perform on-device sensor data analytics at extremely low power
  • ML: Machine learning is a field of inquiry devoted to understanding and building methods that “learn,” that is, methods that leverage data to improve performance on a set of tasks
