|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
Another Embedded Vision Summit has come and gone, and I'm feeling no shortage of satisfaction. This year's Embedded Vision Summit East drew even more attendees than last year, and they seemed pleased with the expanded program; the overall 8.6 (out of 10) event rating matched last year's equally impressive score. We're busy editing the videos of the various presentations and demonstrations, which will begin appearing on the website shortly. Keep an eye on the "Videos" page of the Alliance website for the content as it's published; subscribe to the Alliance's Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter social media channels and site RSS feed for proactive notification.
For now, I encourage you to check out Alliance founder Jeff Bier's interview with Michael Tusch, founder and CEO of Apical, which took place the night before the Summit. Apical chose the event to introduce its Assertive Vision processor core, a real-time detection, classification and tracking engine capable of accurate analysis of people and other objects, and designed for integration into SoCs. With the Assertive Engine, Apical formally expands its business beyond conventional image processing into embedded vision processing, and Michael Tusch shares interesting perspectives on differences between the two processing approaches, as well as how they may coexist going forward.
Speaking of conferences, the Alliance will be well represented at several upcoming shows, both physical and virtual. Both Jeff Bier and SoftKinetic's Tim Droz will present at the late-October Interactive Technology Summit (formerly Touch-Gesture-Motion Conference) put on by IHS (which acquired IMS Research in early 2012). In mid-November, Jeff Bier will represent the Alliance at AMD's Developer Summit. And while member company Nvidia's next GPU Technology Conference won't occur until next March, the company is supplementing the physical event with a yearlong series of online webinars, including one in early November on facial recognition algorithm acceleration given by Alliance advisor, University of Queensland, Australia Professor, and Imagus Technology CTO Brian Lovell.
Thanks as always for your support of the Embedded Vision Alliance, and for your interest in and contributions to embedded vision technologies, products and applications. I welcome your emailed suggestions on what the Alliance can do better, as well as what else the Alliance can do, to better service your needs.
