Executive Perspective Presentation: This Changes Everything — Why Computer Vision Will Be Everywhere
Computer vision, or teaching machines to see, will be revolutionary – it will change everything. Beyond the obvious markets where it is having an immediate impact, such as automotive and security, computer vision provides opportunities to improve the functionality of many classes of devices in numerous other markets such as smart buildings and smart cities – and to create completely new applications, products and services.
For example, today there are awkward communication barriers between the digital world and the real world where we humans live. Along with speech recognition, speech synthesis and new imaging technologies, computer vision will knock down those barriers completely. Removal of the current barriers between the digital and real worlds will enable unprecedented ease-of-use for powerful devices and enable new ways of using technology.
This talk will give a personal perspective on the impact of computer vision in diverse markets – from IoT and wearables, through mobile and automotive, right up to data centers – revealing some of the new business models being enabled along the way.
