The annual Israel Machine Vision Conference (IMVC) took place on March 28, 2017 at David InterContinental Tel Aviv.
Ananth Kandhadai spoke at a conference on “Is Vision the New Wireless?”.


Over the past 20 years, digital wireless communications has become an essential technology for many industries, and a primary driver for the electronics industry. Today, computer vision is showing signs of following a similar trajectory. Once used only in low-volume applications such as manufacturing inspection, vision is now becoming an essential technology for a wide range of mass-market devices, from cars to drones to mobile phones. This presentation examines the motivations for incorporating vision into diverse products, presents case studies that illuminate the current state of vision technology in high-volume products, and explores critical challenges to ubiquitous deployment of visual intelligence.
