Welcome to the AI-ML Systems conference, 2023. The conference is into its third year, targeting research and industry work in the interaction of Systems Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. We are continuing the tradition of panel discussions, with active participation of experts both from industry and academia. This year we are expecting the panel discussion to be more exciting as all the participants will be onsite. We have three thought-provoking panels: generative AI, AI for environment and earth sciences, and AI for healthcare and biology. The panels thereby cover the depth and breadth of latest in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The three panels are on different days (Oct 25th, 26th, and 27th) of the main conference and scheduled late in the afternoon. Each panel has a moderator and three panelists. Through the personal views of the panelists and interaction with the audience, the panels will try to understand the unique industry and research challenges, capabilities, limitations, ethical and policy issues, etc., in these evolving domains of AI and ML.
We would like to thank the steering committee of the AI-ML Systems conference for giving us the opportunity to serve as panel co-chairs. We also thank the general co-chairs and the rest of the organizing committee for their support. We look forward to meeting you all at the conference.

The First International Workshop on Sustainable AI for Edge (SAI4E 2023)
With the rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, the integration of AI into edge devices has gained significant attention. Edge computing, which enables data processing closer to the source of generation, has become essential for applications requiring real-time, low-latency, and privacy-sensitive computation. Moreover, the emerging field of neuromorphic computing, inspired by the architecture and functionality of the human brain, offers promising opportunities for efficient and intelligent edge computing systems.
This workshop, with a special focus on industry applications, aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts from academia and industry to delve into the realm of sustainable AI for the edge, emphasizing the convergence of edge computing and neuromorphic computing. By combining the principles of edge computing’s decentralized approach with the brain-inspired computing paradigm of neuromorphic systems, we can explore innovative solutions that address the challenges of scalability, energy efficiency, and adaptability in AI deployments at the edge.
The workshop will comprise of relevant keynote talks, invited papers, tutorials from industry and academia to highlight the challenges that exist in realizing the potential for low-power embedded intelligence at the edge and a panel discussion. The invited talks cover a wide range of topics around Explainable AI at Edge, Edge AI for Industrial and Automotive Applications, and Neuro-inspired AI. The tutorial cover hands-on real-life experience on TinyML. The panel discussion asks pertinent questions around challenges and future directions of sustainable AI.
I am truly grateful to all the invited speakers, panellists and contributed speakers of the workshop for enabling us to create a value-adding technical program. The workshop accepted 4 papers out of 9 submitted (44% acceptance) after a rigorous review process and these will be included in the proceedings of AIMLSys. We would like to thank the AIMLSys Steering Committee for giving us the opportunity to serve as the Workshop Co-Chairs for SAI4E 2023. I wish good luck to all the speakers and presenters and hope of having a successful physical event. We look forward to meeting you all during the conference.
