Embedded Systems, IoT, and AIoT

Course

In this short course, we'll look at embedded systems, IoT, and AIoT, including how they are part of our daily lives, from smart homes and wearable health trackers to intelligent traffic systems. The rapidly evolving nature of these technologies, especially with the increasing use of AI, is revolutionizing industries and bringing automation to previously unthinkable areas. Being able to understand and apply these technologies in the creation of new products and reimagining existing ones is quickly becoming critical knowledge, regardless of your role or industry.
