Computer Vision at the Edge with WebAssembly

Miguel Ángel Cabrera - / Angel De Miguel - Broadcom

Computer vision is a field of Artificial Intelligence with very challenging constraints. To process data in real-time, your application must process every frame in microseconds. Often, these applications make decisions based on the images, making it impossible to move these workloads to the cloud due to network delay, connection issues, and privacy concerns, among other reasons.

In this talk, you will learn about how WebAssembly allows us to build applications that run on any device. We will deep dive into how Pipeless, an Open-Source computer vision framework leverages this WASM capability.

From a few devices to large fleets, you can run your computer vision applications using the same code. These applications are small Wasm Components that Pipeless plugs into the video streams to process and analyze them. It leverages the Wasm Component-Model, so developers can write these components in many different programming languages.

After this talk, you will understand the different challenges of the computer vision ecosystem and how WASM, Pipeless, and the Component-Model simplify them significantly, providing an amazing development experience in a space that currently has a high entry barrier.
