    Things are beginning to move very, very quickly in Embedded Space (where no one can hear you scream). In the 2014 edition of the Gartner Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, for example, Machine Learning wasn't even on the radar. Just one year later, in the 2015 edition, Machine Learning had already past the Peak of Inflated Expectations.

    In this session,'s Editorial Director, Max Maxfield, will lead a discussion on the current trend toward cognitive (thinking / reasoning) embedded systems, artificial neural networks, deep learning, machine vision, virtual and augmented realities, and how all these technologies are coming together. Audience participation will be welcomed.
