Intel's technology has been at the heart of computing breakthroughs. We are an industry leader, creating world-changing technology that enables global progress and enriches lives. We stand at the brink of several technology inflections—artificial intelligence (AI), 5G network transformation, and the rise of the intelligent edge - that together will shape the future of technology. Silicon and software drive these inflections, and Intel is at the heart of it all.
AIoT, FPGA & Embedded Systems Track opens to projects involving embedded system design using IoT or FPGA board. Teams enrolled in the track will be supplied the OpenVINO™ Toolkit or DE1-SoC board. The projects can target various application domains, including agriculture, automotive, consumer, healthcare, industrial, etc.
The Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is the combination of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies with the Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure to achieve more efficient IoT operations, improve human-machine interactions and enhance data management and analytics. Teams can focus on IoT, visual sensing, or AI-specific projects or combine any of these three areas.
Intel AIOT platform envisions the participants to be part of the revolution! Solve the problem with AI technologies to make a difference and shape the future. The solution can be applied, but not limited to retail, health care, smart city, manufacturing, sports, and autonomous vehicles.
OpenVINO™ toolkit (Open Visual Inference and Neural Network Optimization) is a comprehensive toolkit for quickly developing AI applications and solutions that solve various tasks, including emulation of human vision, automatic speech recognition, recommendation systems, and many others. Hence, developers can deploy pre-trained deep learning models through Python or high-level C++ Inference Engine API integrated with the application. The toolkit extends computer vision and non-vision workloads across Intel® hardware, maximizing performance. In addition, it accelerates applications with high-performance, AI, and deep learning inference deployed from edge to cloud.

DE1-SoC board is an updated DE1 board. It is useful for learning about digital logic, computer organization, and FPGAs. Featuring a Cyclone® V 5CSEMA5 FPGA which has an integrated dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. The DE1-SoC board is designed for university and college use. It is suitable for a wide range of university projects, from simple tasks to advanced designs.
The track offers the opportunity for students to create FPGA design projects and implement in the Intel FPGA development kit. The projects can target various market segments, e.g. consumer, industrial, medical, automotive, military, computing, ASIC emulation, etc., with the emphasis on creativity, innovation, practicality, and potential for commercialization of the projects.
Students who are more well-verse in hardware description language can choose to use Verilog, VHDL, etc. to create their designs. Students who prefer software programming language like C can use the Nios II soft processor, or the hard processor system available in the Intel SoC FPGA devices. A wide range of IP cores are also available for students to utilize and instantiate in their designs, saving them precious time and accelerating their design development.
The eventual designs are expected to be implemented in Intel FPGA development kits for prototyping or proof of concept. Students can choose to use the Cyclone V DE1 SoC development kits or other Intel FPGA development kits as preferred.
