The May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit West


Computer Vision for Next-Generation Products

The event for software and hardware developers who want to incorporate visual intelligence into their products

29 May 2014 • 8 am to 7:30 pm
Santa Clara Convention Center • Santa Clara, CA USA

The Embedded Vision Summit provides a unique opportunity to learn about the hottest topic in the electronics industry today: the computer vision technologies that enable the creation of systems and applications that “see and understand.”

This highly rated event helps attendees find new ways to create better products, and empowers them with practical insights and know-how related to the use of computer vision. The Summit includes:

  • Conference tracks featuring "how-to" presentations on applications, algorithms, processors, sensors, tools and techniques for practical computer vision
  • Keynote talks by industry luminaries from Facebook and Google
  • Technology Showcase with over 30 demonstrations of the latest vision processors, tools and applications
  • Opportunities to connect with experts from leading vision suppliers and with other product innovators using embedded vision technology

The May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit West is now concluded.

Embedded Vision Workshops

On Wednesday, May 28, the Alliance held in-depth tutorial workshops on designing systems and software that incorporate computer vision. These workshops are an excellent launching pad for application and system developers interested in gaining deeper knowledge of technologies and techniques for practical computer vision.

Taught by computer and embedded vision experts from Alliance member companies, Summit Workshops explore exciting and informative topics, ranging from embedded vision algorithms to software implementation and hardware acceleration. See here for more information about the Summit Workshops.

Press and Analysts Welcome

For business and technology publication editors, market researchers, and financial analysts, Embedded Vision Alliance Summits provide unique opportunity to gain insights into the business and technology drivers behind the rapid proliferation of computer vision.  By attending, you will learn about technologies for  “machines that see”—in virtually every category of electronic products, from automobiles to consumer electronics to health care. Summits provide a concentrated opportunity to hear from and interact with vision technology leaders from industry and academia, and include live demonstrations of new embedded vision products and technologies.
