Embedded Executive: Allan Yang, CTO, Advantech, Part 3

It’s obvious that you can do 5G without AI. However, the inverse is not always true—adding 5G to AI makes the AI platform run far more efficiently. In the third of three podcasts, I discussed this topic with Allan Yang, the CTO of Advantech. Allan brings a great perspective, as his company is one of the architects behind AI platforms. Hear all about it in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.

In case you were wondering, Part I looked at the general definition of AIoT, which you likely know, means different things to different people. Then in Part II, Allan and I discuss whether there’s really a need for AIoT, and if the current solutions are really solutions.
