Just imagine a world, where every thing you touch is intelligent and ready to assist you. Where everyday devices learn with you autonomously all the time, augmenting your senses and providing immediate feedback for your decisions. EdgeAI is the next frontier in artificial intelligence that enables such capabilities in the smallest imaginable devices and sensors even when there is no cloud connectivity.

Edge Computing includes applications, data, services at the periphery of networks that are close to real-world sensors. Edge systems are typically constrained in their available energy budget, CPUs, memory, and connectivity. Fog computing further combines these aspects with cloud architectures in order to add enhanced local pre-processing and intelligence that extends the capabilities of classical clouds.

Modern sensor applications - for instance in industrial monitoring and logistics, Internet-of-Things, Ubiquitous Computing, mobile devices, wearables & hearables, health & fitness, drones, or augmented reality - increasingly rely on Edge and Fog Computing to better handle Big Data, always-on applications, continuous fusion of data streams, and new kinds of use cases that were unimaginable before.

In this context, Edge Artificial Intelligence methods (Edge-AI) become key to the realization of continuously learning systems that provide more autonomy and instant feedback. In contrast to mainstream AI, EdgeAI techniques have to cope with significant resource constraints and be fault-tolerant. This course therefore picks up on this exciting topic to provide an overview of state-of-the-art, further dive into current research works, show demonstrations, and discuss open problems.
