In this session, Caltech professors Azita Emami and Katherine Bouman discussed a holistic approach that brings together the two distinct fields of sensor technology and artificial intelligence through the co-design of sensors and algorithms. The aim is to create sensor networks that intelligently and autonomously process their own data and adapt their activity in real time based on what they detect, enabling transformative discoveries in areas ranging from neural signals in the human body to black holes in space.
