Peter Shannon, Managing Director at Firelake Capital Management, presents the "Practitioner’s Guide to Commercializing Applications of Computer Vision" tutorial at the May 2016 Embedded Vision Summit.
Computer vision technology is advancing at an exciting pace, but still has a long way to go toward maturity and realizing its full potential. The technology itself presents attractive opportunities, but the opportunity presented by the applications it will enable dwarfs this. The ultimate possibilities are limited only by the imagination and insights of professionals across industries, but how do we assess what applications are feasible today? What attributes do today’s applications have in common, and how do we go about realizing them?
This talk explores the practical implications of commercializing a vision-enabled product, from product requirements to development expectations through to validation and ensuring a good customer experience, highlighting the points of contrast with the commercialization of more traditional software-based products.
