TITLE: Distributed End-to-end Video Analytics

ABSTRACT:
This talk is to discuss the need and a framework of distributed end-to-end video analytics. Video cameras are ubiquitous nowadays, but the limited Internet bandwidth has prevented the video data from being useful in an economically efficient manner. Additionally, many video analytics tasks mandate quick turnaround time demanding (near) real time decision making. Distributed end-to-end video analytics, which collaboratively uses devices, edge servers, and the cloud as the computing platform, is the way to go. However, distributed visual workload can be difficult to develop and manage, especially for startups or SMEs who have been playing an integral in the Internet of Things. We present a framework for facilitating and expediting development and management of distributed video analytics workload across an end-to-end system comprising camera, gateway and the cloud.
