TinyML enables machine learning on low-power microcontrollers, democratizing access to performant AI in remote, resource-constrained settings. This revolutionary technology unlocks new possibilities for sustainable development and scientific research by increasing equitable access to on-device intelligence worldwide.
The emergence of TinyML has created new possibilities for building smart, ultra low-power devices ideal for resource-constrained settings. In recent years, TinyML has attracted significant interest from researchers, developers, and industries for its potential to enable innovative applications in healthcare, agriculture, transportation, conservation, smart homes, and more. TinyML's extremely low bandwidth and energy requirements make it uniquely suited for regions with limited access to reliable energy and computing infrastructure. Though currently restricted in reach, TinyML intersects topics across computer science and engineering curricula, making it an impactful educational tool. This hands-on workshop focuses on TinyML applications relevant to Latin American researchers, providing training on commercially available hardware optimized for embedded ML deployment. By making TinyML more accessible, especially in the Global South, this workshop will empower researchers to develop localized solutions that benefit their communities.
