BFA (BIFF Film Academy) Application Guideline and Promotional Video
The application guideline and promotional video for the BFA (BIFF Film Academy), which is the first Film Studies degree program in Korea to be designed and operated by a film festival, were released on the BFA's official website. The Busan International Film Festival unveiled the official website for the BFA, a global Film Studies degree program, which was first announced last month. The application guidelines and the promo video uploaded on the website provides a preview of the official admissions application process for the program, signaling that the program has taken off in earnest. [BFA's Unique Academic Program] The BFA degree program was established with the goal of fostering global film professionals under the motto: "Education for Film, Education through Film." From its developmental stages, the BFA's degree program began with the contemplation by global film professionals of the most effective film education for students who are dreaming of becoming filmmakers. Based on such contemplation, every class was designed systematically. Three degrees – Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate –were established. The undergraduate program includes filmmaking and media acting majors, while the graduate program trains film production and film theory majors. The doctorate program focuses on film theory. The filmmaking major provides a diversity of courses in professional film education, from overall film production, which includes directing and technical education, to practical field trainings in conjunction with the Busan International Film Festival's project. The Film Theory major provides an advanced theory education on the arts, which includes the study of both the film and culture industries with focus on acquiring practical and independent critical thinking abilities through case studies analyses; fostering a deeper understanding and insight about cinema and the world through studies of Asian humanities subjects, and presenting a new methodology based on an understanding of cinema and the world. For the undergraduate program, a Media Acting major was established to help students adjust to production locations through a co-production workshop with the Filmmaking majors. [Excellent Faculty - a Hands-on Coaching System with Korean Master Directors] The Busan International Film Festival selected the faculty by recruiting the best directors in Korea and the best veteran theory specialists from Asia in order to create an educational program that concentrates on field and practice, the two primary tracks of film education. With the BFA faculty, students can experience the cinematic worldview of master directors, create meaningful connections with them, and receive direct coaching through the newly added mentoring system, which has been incorporated into the project-based, co-production practice provided by BFA. Through this process, students can have a variety of substantial experiences that will serve as a foundation for becoming a professional filmmaker. Apart from the core curriculum, diverse educational opportunities, such as master classes with film production specialists or renowned filmmakers, will be available to all students. [Accepting Applications] The application guidelines are distributed through BFA's official website (bfa.biff.kr). The overall information on the program, such as the program overview, the degrees offered, the admission guidelines, and the curriculum can be found on the website. A foundation program (online courses) is offered for students preparing for undergraduate admission, and it is currently accepting applications as well.

CCTV+: Highlights of President Xi's remarks on Chinese dreams
BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mid-Autumn Festival, the 15th day of the eighth month on lunar Chinese calendar, fell on Tuesday this year. The year of 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and many achievements made over the past century to realize the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation also deserve grand celebrations. &amp;amp;nbsp; China has set some major goals for making the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation come true. Top on the list are the two centennial goals: to "build a moderately prosperous society in all respects" by 2021 at the CPC's celebration of its centenary; to "build a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced and harmonious" by 2049, the centenary of the People's Republic of China. "We have realized the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects," declared President Xi at the grand ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of CPC in Beijing on July 1, 2021. President Xi was first to raise the concept "Chinese dream" when he visited "The Road Toward Renewal" exhibition in Beijing on Nov. 29, 2012. "A great dream does not come true by waiting or shouting slogans; it is realized by hard work and perseverance." This is what President Xi said at the grand gathering to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the country's reform and opening-up in Beijing on Dec. 18, 2018. "The history of China is a history of the Chinese nation's struggle against poverty. Ending poverty is the long-cherished dream of the Chinese people." This is what President Xi said at a grand gathering in Beijing to mark the nation's poverty alleviation accomplishments and honor model poverty fighters on February 25, 2021. "Looking back on the path we have traveled and forward to the journey that lies ahead, it is certain that with the firm leadership of the Party and the great unity of the Chinese people of all ethnic groups, we will achieve the goal of building a great modern socialist country in all respects and fulfill the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation."

Over Half Million Mobile Robots to be Shipped to Warehouses Globally in 2030
Warehouse automation adoption on the rise due to sustained order volume surge NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The supply chain industry has surged its warehouse automation efforts considering the e-commerce boom and labor scarcities. In addition to solutions such as headphone enabled voice-picking and exoskeletons that reduce human effort, mobile robots are proving to be the most prevalent productivity-enhancing solution in the warehousing sector. According to ABI Research, a global tech market advisory firm, worldwide mobile robot shipments in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of almost 40% from 2021 to 2030 and exceed 500,000 global shipments in 2030. "Productivity technologies can achieve far greater return on investment if correctly combined with other technologies. For example, by combining location tracking data with a voice solution, warehouses using a Warehouse Execution System (WES) platform can optimize workflows by minimizing distance traveled based on where the worker is," states Adhish Luitel, Industry Analyst, Supply Chain Management and Logistics at ABI Research. In addition to mobile robotics, the growth of solutions such as Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS) has also been explosive. Led by innovators such as Swisslog, Bastian Solutions, and Körber, the global AS/RS industry is set to be valued at over US$18 billion by 2030, with a year-over-year growth of 9% from 2021 to 2030. AS/RS consists of a variety of computer-controlled systems for automatically placing and retrieving loads from defined storage locations, ideal for high volume of loads being moved into and out of storage. This trend falls in line with the fact that the logistics sector has been experiencing high volume over the past year. Parcel shipping reached 95 billion in parcel volume globally in 2020, this volume is expected to double by 2026, with a 14% CAGR between 2020 and 2026. "As the shift toward robotics occurs with busier warehouses, manual workflows can be automated or workflows that have traditionally been carried out by highly specialized and inflexible machines could soon be carried out by robots that can be moved and retrained as needed," Luitel concludes. These findings are from ABI Research's Smart Warehousing market data report. This report is part of the company's Supply Chain Management and Logistics research service, which includes research, data, and ABI Insights.

CCTV+: CMG's Mid-Autumn Festival Gala presents magnificent visual feast
BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The China Media Group (CMG)'s highly-anticipated Mid-Autumn Festival Gala was aired Tuesday night, presenting a magnificent visual feast to global audiences with nearly 30 exquisite artistic performances. &amp;amp;nbsp; The gala consisting of three chapters, offered a blend of traditional elements and advanced technologies, showcasing a panoramic picture of Chinese culture and history. It was simultaneously broadcast overseas for the first time. The first part of the gala, themed "Moon rises to Mid-Autumn," attracted audience with various elements of traditional Chinese culture. It includes songs of a traditional Chinese poem about the Mid-Autumn Festival and modern songs integrated with traditional Chinese styles to show affection for the country and family, and songs praising dream seekers. The second part, themed "Moon and Hometown" includes 12 songs to show people's nostalgia, a sentiment rooted deep within a nation's spirit, and affection to the motherland. In this part, a song named "Nostalgia" showed every Chinese people's homesickness. Themed "the full moon and the realization of dreams", the third part of the TV gala included singing and dancing performances and the presence of Olympic champions and gifts from the space. The three-part gala was recorded earlier this month in Xichang, capital of the Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Sichuan Province and home to the Xichang Satellite Launch Center, and presented on a 360-degree stage, the largest of its kind in the show's history. The main stage was inspired by the Big Dipper, a constellation of the seven brightest stars of the larger constellation Ursa Major, and China's own global navigation satellite system, BeiDou, named after the Big Dipper asterism, symbolizing best wishes for happiness, reunion, companionship, and coexistence. Featuring space elements, it spotlighted people who have devoted themselves to the development of China's aerospace industry. Since the gala was first broadcast live by China Central Television (CCTV) in 1991, it has become overwhelmingly popular among the Chinese diaspora and is now one of the most popular festive TV shows with hundreds of millions annual viewers worldwide.

CGTN: China leads green development, vows no new coal-fired power projects abroad
BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- After pledging to strive to peak carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060, China has taken another remarkable and practical step in pursuing green development. &amp;amp;nbsp; China will step up support for other developing countries in promoting green and low-carbon energy and will not build new coal-fired power projects abroad, announced President Xi Jinping at the general debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) via video on Tuesday. This is not surprising but of great significance, as China has previously cooperated with several countries along the routes of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) towards "greening" the initiative. Global development initiative Phasing out coal investments would be promising to reduce carbon emissions, which pose a threat to the United Nations' (UN) Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, especially Goal 13 on climate action. Besides decreasing coal-fired power projects, China has pledged an additional $3 billion of international assistance in the next three years to support developing countries in responding to COVID-19 and promoting economic and social recovery. "Development holds the key to people's well-being," Xi said, adding that countries need to work together to steer global development towards a new stage of balanced, coordinated and inclusive growth. Beijing has highlighted its willingness to work with the international community, including the United States, to jointly advance global environmental governance. For instance, through joint partnership, China has established the Belt and Road Initiative International Green Development Coalition, which serves as a platform for BRI cooperation on green development. Under the platform, China has provided more than 2,000 training opportunities for environmental protection officials, experts and technicians from over 120 participating countries. Adhering to green development is engraved in the Chinese government through the Constitution and the master blueprint of national development as an ecological civilization to be observed in all socioeconomic developments and political agendas. Beating COVID-19 remains a major task Undoubtedly, though many countries are busy trying to rebuild their economies amid the pandemic, COVID-19 is still raging in the world, with the number of new cases rising every day globally. Under such circumstances, President Xi called for putting people and their lives first, taking a science-based approach to origins tracing, enhancing the coordinated global COVID-19 response and minimizing the risk of cross-border virus transmission. Noting that vaccination is a powerful weapon against COVID-19, he stressed the pressing priority is to ensure the fair and equitable distribution of vaccines globally. China has promised to provide a total of two billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to the world by the end of this year and has donated 100 million doses of the vaccine to other developing countries in the course of this year in addition to $100 million to COVAX. Practicing true multilateralism is critical Whether it is improving global environmental governance or beating COVID-19, multilateralism is paramount, which is another key point of Xi's statement at the UNGA. "The UN should hold high the banner of true multilateralism and serve as the central platform for countries to jointly safeguard universal security, share development achievements and chart the course for the future of the world," Xi said. The Chinese president called on the UN to increase the representation and say of developing countries in international affairs and take the lead in advancing democracy and the rule of law in international relations. China, a staunch supporter of multilateralism President Xi also called for building a new type of international relations based on mutual respect, equity, justice and win-win cooperation, stressing that the practice of forming small circles or zero-sum games should be rejected. "One country's success does not have to mean another country's failure, and the world is big enough to accommodate common development and progress of all countries," he said, adding that differences and problems among countries need to be handled through dialogue and cooperation on the basis of equality and mutual respect. As the largest developing country, a permanent member of the UN Security Council and the second-largest contributor to the UN's regular budget and peacekeeping assessments, China has always actively supported the work of the United Nations, firmly safeguarded the international system and upheld multilateralism with concrete actions. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, China has hosted a series of major international events, including the G20 Hangzhou Summit, the 22nd APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, the 2018 Beijing Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, the China International Import Expo, and the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations. https://news.cgtn.com/news/2021-09-22/China-leads-green-development-with-another-practical-step-13KX5J87auI/index.html Related Links :http://www.cgtn.com

After Uelington de Nascimento officially took over as CEO, it was acquired by a South American company in the fourth year of its establishment, aiming to expand its global business in 2021. At present, the derivatives market has rebounded. Although it is still a long way from its peak in the first and second quarters of this year, the rebound has more or less confirmed that derivatives are still the evergreen field of encrypted money markets. No matter how the current encrypted currency market develops, trading platforms with high volumes generally provide an excellent trading experience during a rebound in the market. Strict regulation of encrypted currency derivatives places many restrictions on traders and users. However, this has not affected the derivatives market, which has been favored by entrepreneurs and investors. Generally speaking, derivatives will remain unchanged in the cryptocurrency world, which is the basis for the traditional centralized exchange to survive in the face of NFT and DeFi. Since 2019, cryptocurrency derivatives market has gradually become the arena of exchanges. After a bull market cycle, the headline pattern gradually solidified. According to CoinMarketCap data, the trading volumes of Coinan, OKEx and FTX respectively rank among the top three in the current derivatives trading market. It is not easy for latecomers to break their dominant position. It is also in today's rapidly changing regulatory environment that the top positions began to relax. CEO Uelington de Nascimento, CEO of CoinBene, expressed strong interest in Latin America, Brazil, Japan, South Korea and the United States. CoinBene currently provides customer service in English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian. CoinBene has been widely recognized and loved by users for its complete functions and concise and smooth transaction interface. CEO Uelington de Nascimento, CEO of CoinBene, has always stressed that "a good trading experience is the most important factor". The user experience can be divided into usability and security. CoinBene can help users reduce the risk of participating in derivatives trading and the threshold of participation. CoinBene's product design allows users to easily access all the functions needed for a smooth trading experience. For example, the user can turn cash on and off in one second. CoinBene also provides novice users with a simple version of the product-the default timing diagram, which makes novice users have a more intuitive grasp of real-time price trends. Before Coinbene, users were more common in full warehouse and warehouse-by-warehouse mode. However, this model is not flexible enough. Shortly after receiving the feedback from users, Coinbene spent a month brainstorming and developing a special warehouse-dividing model according to the needs of users. In the separate position mode, users can flexibly set up multiple positions in the same direction for a certain currency. Each position calculates leverage and parity separately. At present, users can choose the modes of full position split, full position merge, position-by-position split and position-by-position merge. At present, security has become the top priority of the exchange. A typical example is the "312" incident. During the "312" incident, a large number of panicked users visited the exchanges, which led to the downtime of many major exchanges, and the servers were overwhelmed and could not be accessed. They can only watch their positions collapse. It is worth mentioning that CoinBene did not experience any downtime. In addition, the professional safety of the CoinBene platform has received a five-star rating from Bitforest and TokenInsight. In the area of encryption, downtime is hard to avoid completely. In addition to using index prices to anchor global spot prices, eliminating nailing and price manipulation, CoinBene also hopes to reassure users through insurance. CoinBene has been growing through many improvements and changes since 2017. CoinBene's commitment to "user-friendliness" and its pursuit of user needs have created many eye-catching innovative functions. At present, CoinBene is likely to become the highest echelon in the global derivatives market. Related Links :http://www.CoinBene.com
CGTN: A look back at 2021: Fulfillment of Chinese dreams
BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, celebrated on September 21 this year, is an occasion for family reunions. It is a day on which many people believe dreams come true when the moon is at its fullest. &amp;amp;nbsp; On this day, let's take a look back at 2021, which has so far witnessed many of the Chinese dreams come true, including the fulfillment of the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and the successful completion of the Shenzhou-12 manned spaceflight mission. Building a moderately prosperous society "Through the continued efforts of the whole Party and the entire nation, we have realized the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects," Chinese President Xi Jinping declared at a ceremony marking the centenary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on July 1. With the announcement, China brought about a historic resolution to the problem of absolute poverty. The country is now marching toward the second centenary goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects. Within eight years, China successfully lifted the final 98.99 million impoverished people out of poverty, together with 832 impoverished counties and 128,000 villages. China spent a total of nearly 1.6 trillion yuan (about $246 billion) on eradicating poverty through a strategy of targeted poverty alleviation, striving to eradicate poverty through development. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012, Xi has presided over seven central poverty alleviation work symposiums, conducted over 50 research tours on poverty reduction and visited all of China's 14 contiguous impoverished areas. Millions of cadres were sent to the front line of poverty alleviation. Among them, over 1,800 workers lost lives for the country's great cause. In Xi's words, the eradication of absolute poverty has represented a miraculous achievement in China. The victory has been secured through the combined efforts of the whole Party and the nation. Advancements in space exploration China's space dream is another highlight of the year 2021. The country declared a complete success of the Shenzhou-12 manned spaceflight mission after three Chinese astronauts landed safely on Earth on September 17, ending their three-month space travel. On April 29, China launched the Tianhe core module of the China Space Station. Just as Xi said during his conversation with the astronauts on June 23, "the construction of the space station is a milestone in China's space industry, which will make pioneering contributions to the peaceful use of space by humanity." Read more: On Chang'e-5 mission day, looking back on Xi's key quotes on China's space dream Xi's words unveiled China's relentless spirit in its pursuit of space exploration. In fact, Xi has always been watching closely over the growth of China's aerospace industry. Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, the Chinese president made several important instructions on the development of the industry, hoping it would continue making new breakthroughs through innovation and self-reliance. From the launch of China's first man-made space satellite Dongfanghong-1 to the Shenzhou-12 spacecraft, these 50 years have witnessed how China is striving to pursue its dream of "flying into the sky and reaching for the moon." Century-old Olympic dream With the approaching of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, China's dream of hosting the Games is going to come true for a second time, which will also make Beijing the first city in the world to host both summer and winter Games. From dreaming to host Olympics in 1908 to finally hosting the Summer Olympics in 2008, the century-old dream witnessed the Chinese nation's journey toward prosperity. China is now inviting the whole world to join a "wonderful, extraordinary and remarkable" Winter Olympics. Looking into the future, there are more Chinese dreams that await fulfillment. https://news.cgtn.com/news/2021-09-21/A-look-back-at-2021-Fulfillment-of-Chinese-dreams-13JDjJPGGwo/index.html Related Links :http://www.cgtn.com
CGTN: CMG's 2021 Mid-Autumn Festival Gala combines modernity and tradition
BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mid-Autumn Festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, which this year is September 21. China Media Group's (CMG) 2021 Mid-Autumn Festival Gala was broadcast overseas for the first time on Tuesday night, starting at 8:00 p.m. (BJT). &amp;amp;nbsp; The audiovisual feast was held at Xingyue Lake Wetland Park in Xichang, capital of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China's Sichuan Province. The location was picked to pay tribute to those who have contributed to China's aerospace industry as the city is also home to the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. The event also showcased the culture and customs of China's Yi ethnic people. A "China-chic-style" music band, Zide Guqin Studio – which has become a hit on Chinese social media for playing traditional Chinese musical instruments in a new way – performed the classic song "Wishing We Last Forever" with actors Liu Shishi and Jing Boran. Celebrated Peking Opera performers Wang Peiyu and Zheng Qiyuan sang "Great Beauty" together as part of the celebration. As the gala progressed, the audience was treated to a combination of pop music and traditional Chinese culture, including a symphony in the style of the Yi ethnic people. Viewers from all around the world were shown the beautiful natural scenery of Liangshan and the cultural landscape of the Yi ethnic people, whose folk songs are passed down through generations and reflect both the old and new Yi spirit. CMG hosts Kang Hui, Sa Beining and others also brought a wonderful performance titled "The Ordinary Road." Besides the singers and actors, the gala also invited some special guests. Among them are the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games women's quadruple sculls rowing champions Chen Yunxia, Zhang Ling, Lv Yang, and Cui Xiaotong and 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics speed skating champion Zhang Hong, who sang "Running to You with All My Heart." Chen Yunxia, Zhang Ling, Lyu Yang, and Cui Xiaotong won the gold medal in the rowing women's quadruple sculls final on July 28, 2021, paddling their way to victory with 6:05.13 ahead of Team Poland (6:11.36) and Team Australia (6:12.08), who finished second and third, respectively, at the Sea Forest Waterway in Tokyo Bay. The appearance of The Chinese Olympic athletes reminded people of the day they won the gold medal, taking the atmosphere of the evening party to new heights. The presence of 2014 Winter Olympics speed skating champion Zhang Hong also reminded people that the 2022 Winter Olympics is just around the corner. As the evening drew to a close, Zhou Shen, a Chinese singer with a beautiful voice, serenaded the audience. Zhou is best known for his song "Big Fish." The song has been covered many times by singers at home and abroad. In CMG's Music Voyage program, which launched earlier this year, British singer Katie Sky, known for her hit song "Monsters," sent her greetings to Chinese music lovers virtually and shared her cover of Zhou Shen's "Big Fish" during the music festival. Xichang has always been an important base of China's space industry. With the successful mission of Shenzhou-12, China's space industry has opened a new chapter. During the gala, the three Chinese astronauts, or taikonauts, Nie Haisheng, Liu Boming and Tang Hongbo, also sent their blessing to the audience through video. Zhou sang a song about space and the stars, paying tribute to industry heroes. The gala, themed on reunion, technology, Chinese elements and culture, ended with creative song and dance performances. Advanced technologies, such as augmented reality, were used to create an immersive experience for viewers. Meanwhile, virtual reality and artificial intelligence were employed to bring a visual feast to the audience. https://news.cgtn.com/news/2021-09-21/CMG-s-2021-Mid-Autumn-Festival-Gala-combines-modernity-and-tradition-13K4ISRneAU/index.html Related Links :http://www.cgtn.com

Over 2 Billion Devices Will be Shipped with a Dedicated Chipset for Ambient Sound or Natural Language Processing By 2026
SINGAPORE, Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Language Processing (NLP) and ambient sound processing are traditionally considered exclusive cloud technologies and this has restricted their adoption in markets where security, privacy, and service continuity are critical elements for deployment. However, the advancements in deep learning compression technologies and edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) chipsets are now enabling these technologies to be integrated at the end-device level, which could mitigate security and privacy concerns while ensuring enabled services can be delivered consistently without interruption. ABI Research, a global tech market advisory firm, estimates over 2 billion end devices will be shipped with a dedicated chipset for ambient sound or natural language processing by 2026. "NLP and ambient sound processing will follow the same cloud-to-edge evolutionary path as machine vision. Through efficient hardware and model compression technologies, this technology now requires fewer resources and can be fully embedded in end devices," says Lian Jye Su, Principal Analyst, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning at ABI Research. "At the moment, most of the implementations focus on simple tasks, such as wake word detection, scene recognition, and voice biometrics. However, moving forward, AI-enabled devices will feature more complex audio and voice processing applications." The popularity of Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, and various chatbots in the enterprise sector has led to the boom of the voice user interface. In June 2021, Apple announced that Siri would process certain requests and actions offline. Such implementation frees Siri from constant internet connectivity and significantly improves the iPhone user's experience. ABI Research expects Apple's competitors, especially Google, with its latest Tensor System-on-a-Chip (SoC), to follow suit and offer similar support on its Android operating systems currently supporting billions of consumer and connected devices . In the enterprise sector, edge-based ambient sound processing remains in the nascent stage, with Infineon being one of the very early supplier of this technology. Increasingly, other sensor vendors are trialing the analysis of machine sound for uptime tracking, predictive maintenance, and machinery analytics. The combination of machine sound with other information, including temperature, pressure, and torque, can accurately predict the status of machine health and longevity. Recognizing the importance of edge-based NLP and ambient sound processing, chipset vendors are actively forming partnerships to boost their capabilities. For example, Qualcomm has been working closely with prominent NLP startups, including Audio Analytics and Hugging Face. CEVA, a chipset IP vendor, announced a partnership with Fluent.ai to offer multilingual speech recognition technology in low-power audio devices. The recent collaboration between Synitiant and Renesas aims to provide a multimodal AI platform that combines deep learning-based visual and audio processing. "Aside from dedicated hardware, machine learning developers are also looking to leverage various novel machine learning techniques such as multimodal learning and federated learning. Through multimodal learning, edge AI systems can become smarter and more secure if they combine insights from multiple data sources. With federated learning, end users can personalize voice AI in end devices, as edge AI can improve based on learning from their unique local environments," concludes Su. These findings are from ABI Research's Deep Learning-Based Ambient Sound and Language Processing: Cloud to Edge application analysis report. This report is part of the company's Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning research service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights. Based on extensive primary interviews, Application Analysis reports present in-depth analysis on key market trends and factors for a specific technology.
