In attendance for the majority of the day were more than a dozen highly influential press and analyst representatives, who learned about the burgeoning embedded vision technology opportunity both via a number of formal presentations and through informal discussions with Alliance representatives. Several writeups covering the event have already been published, such as Rick Merritt's (EE Times) "DARPA Seeks Breakthroughs in Computer Vision" and Dean Takahashi's (VentureBeat) "This Chip Can Count Dice Rolls Faster than You Can". And further coverage of the Alliance and its activities will undoubtedly appear in the days and weeks to come. Please drop me an email with any coverage you come across, in case you see it before I do!
