National Instruments: Two New Videos Inform Your Future Embedded Vision Accomplishments

The members of the Embedded Vision Alliance collectively have amassed (and continue to expand on) an impressive collection of embedded vision-themed educational content; application notes and other documentation, tutorials and other videos, demonstration utilities and other file downloads

Alliance Membership Expansion Is Going Great: This Post Will Get You Up To Date

One of the many things that are nice (along with, admittedly, a bit nerve-wracking) about my Editor-in-Chief role at the Embedded Vision Alliance is that there's never any shortage or diversity of projects to work on. There never seem to be enough hours in a given day to get everything done that I'd like to tackle. And, since human cloning hasn't yet been perfected (at least to the best of my knowledge), some to-dos inevitably get deferred.

The Blackfin Embedded Vision Starter Kit Hands-on Workshop: A Second Day Of Training Ensures That Your Embedded Vision Summit Experience Won't Stop

On Friday April 26, from 8:30AM-1:30PM, Embedded Vision Alliance members Analog Devices, Avnet Electronics Marketing and BDTI will co-present a workshop exploring hardware and software for image processing and video analytics, featuring the Avnet/Analog Devices Embedded Vision Starter Kit. This workshop is an excellent starting point for vision application developers interested in exploring a wide range of embedded vision applications.

The Embedded Vision Alliance: Additional Presentations At DESIGN West

Reiterating what I said the other day, many of you likely already are aware that the premier Silicon Valley edition of the Embedded Vision Summit is coming up in a bit more than a month.

The Linley Tech Mobile Conference: Jeff Bier Will Discuss Embedded Vision's Ascendance

As many of you already know from recent Alliance email and other communication, the premier Silicon Valley edition of the Embedded Vision Summit is coming up in a bit more than a month. One week ahead of that, however, Silicon Valley residents (and visitors) will have another opportunity to hear about embedded vision, specifically on mobile electronics devices.

Coming Up Next Week In The UK: The Image Sensors 2013 Show

Apologies for the short notice on this one, folks, I only recently found out about it... The image sensor is, perhaps obviously, a key piece of any embedded vision system design. This is why, for example, my first technical article published on the Alliance website discussed them. It's also why engineers at BDTI have to date delivered two technical presentations on them at Alliance Member Summits:

A Free Embedded Vision Online Tutorial: Design News and the Embedded Vision Alliance Deliver Five Days Full

Some of you may remember that last September, the week before the premier Embedded Vision Summit, BDTI and the Embedded Vision Alliance delivered a free five-part embedded vision webcast series in partnership with Design News Magazine. Two weeks from now (i.e.

The Raspberry Pi And Embedded Vision: Almost Out Of The Oven

Late last November, I mentioned that a 5 Mpixel add-in camera module was under active development for the popular (at least to most folks), inexpensive Raspberry Pi hobbyist board.

UC Berkeley's Professor Pieter Abbeel: The Embedded Vision Summit's Keynoter, And An Artificial Intelligence And Robotics Pioneer

If you've been up on the Embedded Vision Summit page over the past several days, you may have noticed that we've added information on the event's keynote (and keynoter). The keynote presentation on "Artificial Intelligence for Robotic Butlers and Surgeons" will be delivered by Professor Pieter Abbeel of the University of California, Berkeley.

The IEEE Embedded Vision Workshop: When Planning Your Schedule, It's Never Too Early To Start

Last summer, Embedded Vision Alliance founder Jeff Bier was the keynote presenter at the IEEE Embedded Vision Workshop, held in conjunction with the IEEE CVPR (Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition) Conference. And the Embedded Vision Alliance will likely attend the Embedded Vision Workshop again this summer, although the exact form of that participation is yet to be finalized. As such, I wanted to be sure that this seminal embedded vision event is on your radar screens.
