Computer Vision, AR/VR, & Robotics Summit

July 16, 2021

Ever since the advent of deep learning neural networks, computer vision-based AI technology with myriad applications in software as well as in AR/VR & robotics has seen exponential growth, enabling business applications that were hitherto in the realm of science fiction. This technology promises to take humankind rapidly towards the future and change the way we view our world. Today, aerial drones equipped with computer vision can analyze both pictures and videos and keep us safe, whether it is in our homes or on the battlefield. Robots equipped with this technology have applications in healthcare, security, manufacturing, retail among others. Similarly, AR/VR technology is set to transform our shopping experiences or take gaming to the next level. On this computer vision, AR/VR & robotics summit day, hear from industry leaders who will talk about their journeys and learnings in implementing these technologies, how they unlocked value/ROI from them, and their thoughts about what the future holds.
