AI at the edge

(Unfortunately, this presentation is currently only available in German.)

In naher Zukunft wird KI zu unserem Alltag gehören. So werden selbstoptimierende Maschinen, Spracherkennung sowie diagnostizierende Medizingeräte uns täglich unterstützen. Die zugrunde liegenden Algorithmen sind extrem leistungsfähig aber auch leistungshungrig. Was steckt wirklich hinter der KI? Wie kann diese «at the edge», also eingebettet im Endgerät laufen, ohne Daten in der Cloud zu rechnen? In diesem Talk erklären David Gschwend und Florentin Marty, wie Ingenieure von SCS für Ihre Kunden erfolgreich KI in eingebettete Systeme packen.

Dieser Vortrag wurde am 9. Juni 2020 im Rahmen der Embedded Computing Conference 2020 mit dem “Audience Choice Award” ausgezeichnet.

    Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, Cloud – all these terms are currently being discussed all over. However, most of the time, a common understanding is missing about the meaning of these terms and the way they are to be implemented in the industry. Also, the benefit for the customer is not always clear.

    During a recent round table of the forum “Laufenburger Talks”, Dr. Johannes Gassner was invited as an expert to talk about this topic.

    The article „Swiss KMU is ready – but the benefit is still unclear” was subsequently written about this roundtable and was published twice:

    • Article in the “Technische Rundschau”, the Swiss industry magazine
    • Article in the “Polyscope”, the magazine for electronics and automation

    The “Internet of Things”, abbreviated IoT, has the intention to equip many electrical appliances with the ability to communicate with each other via the internet. Industry 4.0 stands for the pooling of technology trends and a vision of the way the manufacturing business may look in the future.

    The „Laufenburger Talks“ offer a platform to discuss interesting, controversial and current topics among experts.

    SRF_WP_20140203_001The traffic system Proteus from Swiss radio and television SRF is a success story. For more than 10 years the detailed program planning for the channels SRF1, SRFzwei and SRFinfo has taken place with the help of this tool.

    Proteus was conceived and implemented by SCS between 1998 and 2002. Up to that point the various editorial teams at SRF were working with various different methods for the preparation of their programs for broadcast.




    With Proteus a system should be created which supports the editorial team with their jobs while at the same time leading to more efficient cooperative work through the introduction of uniform work processes.


    In a concept phase the functionality of the system would be identified with the assistance of 30 members of the editorial team and would then subsequently be realized by SCS.

    This includes amongst other aspects:

    • The administration and management of
      • Submissions from magazines such as Kassensturz, Aeschbacher, Einstein etc.
      • Information concerning participating presenters, guests, actors, directors and many others
      • Purchasing agreements for films and series.
      • Licenses for the broadcast of foreign productions, as well as additional rights holders for their own productions
    • Export of descriptions and photos for publication on the SRF website, in the program magazines and in teletext / EPG.

    After 10 operational years Proteus has over 700 active users and administers over 300`00 programs with the associated metadata. The user requirements have also changed over the years and Proteus has thus taken over the following tasks:

    • Communication with the SRF automation system.
    • Checking the planning for the adherence to diverse regulations (age rating, advertising lengths).
    • Preparation of information concerning web-cockpits for easy access.

    Participation SCS

    • Requirements analysis in conjunction with the SRF employees
    • Realization of the client specific traffic system Proteus
    • 3rd Level support and further development
