Miniaturized and Integrated Gas Sensors Enabling Adoption at Scale to Monitor and Improve Air Quality in Indoor Spaces


Indoor air quality is essential for human well-being, and the concentration of various gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) is a good indicator of it. However, today's state of the art CO2 sensor solutions are bulky, limiting their adoption at scale. Thanks to the advancement in technology, the Photo Acoustic Principle (PAS) can be miniaturized and be used to detect gas concentrations at ppm level. A new era of smaller gas sensors will enable the scalability of numerous use-cases that impact our quality of life in indoor spaces, ranging from more efficient ventilation systems to even reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. To facilitate the adoption of this new technology, complete system solutions are being requested by device manufacturers to quickly deploy the sensors for optimal interoperation of distributed systems.

TinyML: Massive Opportunity When Machine Intelligence Meets the Real World of Billions of Sensors


Recent progress in computing hardware, machine learning algorithms and networks and availability of large datasets for model training have created a strong momentum in development and wide deployment of game changing AI applications. Intelligent devices with human-like senses have enabled a variety of new use cases and applications transforming the way we interact with each other and our surroundings. Dedicated hardware becomes tiny and very energy efficient (with mW or less power consumption), algorithms and models - smaller (down to 10s of kB of memory requirements), software – lighter down to deployment on deeply embedded platforms. This enormous technology innovative wave and fast growing tinyML ecosystem create a strong momentum towards new applications and business opportunities. On the other side of the physical world spectrum, MEMS and other sensors are becoming more sophisticated, sense a variety of modalities (vision, sound, environmental, motion/vibrations, etc.) and are being deployed in billions every day. The “collision” of these two powerful driving forces, tinyML and tiny smart sensors, establishes a unique opportunity for edge computing and on-device analytics that will be happening everywhere and anytime. As an end result, this will create a better, healthier and more sustainable environment for all.

This presentation will review the state-of-the-art of tinyML (including hardware, algorithmic and software framework aspects), describe some practical examples of technologies and products pioneered at Qualcomm and else, and discusses near-term trends and opportunities, as well as call to actions.

Berkeley Lights: MEMS Technology to Enable a Scalable and Sustainable Cell-Based Future


Berkeley Lights is a leading Digital Cell Biology company focused on enabling and accelerating the rapid development and commercialization of biotherapeutics and other cell-based products. The Berkeley Lights Platform captures deep phenotypic, functional, and genotypic information for thousands of single cells in parallel and can also deliver the live biology customers desire in the form of the best cells. This is a new way to capture and interpret the qualitative language of biology and translate it into single-cell specific digital information, referred to as Digital Cell Biology. We currently focus on enabling the large and rapidly growing markets of antibody therapeutics, cell therapy and synthetic biology with our platform. Our goal is to establish the Berkeley Lights Platform as the standard throughout the cell-based product value chain by increasing the probability of successful product development for our customers.

Since early February when COVID-19 became more prevalent, Berkeley Lights Inc. prioritized helping its customers who are actively involved in finding a cure for COVID-19. With the Berkeley Lights Platform, our customers can execute our workflows at early time points, to provide one of the fastest paths to functionally validated antibodies. Although the spike protein isn’t a particularly hard target to find antibodies for, sometimes being fast and finding the best cells matters.

The time is now to think ahead and invest in solutions, putting the technology and systems in place that are ready to fight the next virus wherever it appears before it becomes a pandemic. We believe that the speed and ability to respond to emerging pathogens can be dramatically improved by deploying our solution globally, to recover antibodies directly from recovering patients from the initial outbreak for rapid development into therapeutics or to accelerate the development of vaccines.
