Rudy Burger, Managing Partner at Woodside Capital Partners, presents the "What’s Hot? The M&A and Funding Landscape for Computer Vision Companies" tutorial at the May 2017 Embedded Vision Summit.

The six primary markets driving computer vision are automotive, sports and entertainment, consumer and mobile, robotics and machine vision, medical, and security and surveillance. This presentation examines the flow of venture money and the volume of M&A activity in each of these sectors and highlights notable transactions and trends. So far, computer vision has not created any unicorns (private companies worth over a billion dollars). Why not? Which existing computer vision companies may become unicorns over the next couple of years?

Burger particularly focuses on several hot sectors driving the vision market – automotive and consumer. Where are the growth opportunities for innovative private companies in these sectors? He highlights a few leading private computer vision companies within these two markets, and the disruptive vision technologies they are developing. He also considers which public companies are likely to be the winners (and losers) within these sectors.
