Embedded Vision Alliance Introduces the Vision Accelerator Program at the Embedded Vision Summit, May 1-3, 2017
Industry consortium launches innovative program enabling engineering and product teams to quickly design, develop and deploy computer vision technology to create products that see.
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 25, 2017 -- At next week's 2017 Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, California, the Embedded Vision Alliance will announce its Vision Accelerator Program designed to help product teams and innovation centers building products using computer vision.
Rapid changes in computer vision hardware, 3D sensing, deep learning techniques, software standards, algorithms and applications make it difficult to define, design, source, and integrate computer vision features into products. The Vision Accelerator Program addresses these challenges with expert guidance that reduces development time and costs for companies creating products that see.
"The demand for the Vision Accelerator Program came from product leaders who are building vision features into their products and who came to industry events like the Embedded Vision Summit. They wanted more targeted help to make specific product decisions," said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. "By offering guidance on critical topics like power/cost tradeoffs, 3D sensing, deep learning and edge vs. cloud processing we can help companies reduce risk and save considerable development time and expense."
One of the first companies to leverage the Embedded Vision Alliance's expertise was Camio, which makes a smart monitoring surveillance product using deep learning for real-time video search and alerts. "The Embedded Vision Alliance and its relationships have provided more value than any other single source of advice or guidance," said Carter Maslan, CEO.
The Vision Accelerator Program includes confidential expert guidance, custom online educational workshops, access to exclusive Alliance events, connections with key potential suppliers and partners and introductions to non-competitive companies facing similar challenges.
The Vision Accelerator Program is an offering of the Embedded Vision Alliance, a worldwide industry partnership of technology providers and end-product companies who are enabling innovative and practical applications using computer vision and working together to build vision capabilities into products and systems.
