Embedded Vision Summit 2017 Brings Together Innovators Building New Products with Computer Vision and Deep Learning

Product designers, engineers, marketers, and investors will gather for a unique three-day conference exploring computer vision and artificial intelligence--the technologies underlying recent advances in autonomous cars, driver assistance systems, drones, medical devices, and a broad range of consumer and industry products incorporating visual intelligence.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 11, 2017 -- The Embedded Vision Summit, held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, May 1-3, is the only event focused exclusively on the technologies, hardware, and software that bring visual intelligence to products. The 2017 Summit presents the latest practical techniques and technologies for vision-based product development, and illuminates the commercial landscape, trends, and business opportunities in this fast-growing market. It will inspire participants to use vision technology in new ways and to empower them with the know-how they need to integrate vision capabilities into products. Participants will learn the business implications of vision technologies, as well as how to bring computer vision into cloud applications, embedded systems, mobile apps, and wearables.

"With breathtaking speed, computer vision is transitioning from a research topic to a ubiquitous technology in applications from autonomous vehicles to retail analytics to toys," says Jeff Bier, founder, Embedded Vision Alliance. "The Embedded Vision Summit brings together more than 1,200 industry innovators, top technologists, business executives, and experienced engineers — game changers from around the world who are creating 'machines that see.'"

The event features more than 90 expert presenters in 4 conference tracks covering every aspect of computer vision. Keynote speakers include Marc Pollefeys, Director of Science for Microsoft HoloLens, who will present on recent advances in 3D computer vision and mixed reality, and Professor Jitendra Malik, former Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California at Berkeley, who will review progress in deep visual understanding.

The event's Vision Technology Showcase features more than 100 demonstrations of commercially-available computer vision components and solutions—both in hardware and software—from more than 50 top suppliers. Day 3 of the conference features in-depth hands-on Vision Technology Workshops presented by Allied Vision, Khronos Group, Synopsys, and VeriSilicon.

Intel is the Premier Plus sponsor of the event. Premier sponsors include Allied Vision, ARM, Synopsys, and Xilinx. Gold sponsors include BDTI, Cadence, CEVA, and Thundersoft. Silver sponsors include AImotive, Imagination Technologies, Luxoft, Nextchip, and NXP.

The event is organized by 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.
