Montreal, Canada – September 16, 2019 – Algolux, the leading provider of software for autonomous computer vision, has announced it has been named an IDC Innovator for Computer Vision in a new report* titled ‘IDC Innovators: Computer Vision Software, 2019’.
Computer vision is a fundamental enabler of numerous markets such as automotive, autonomous vehicles, robotics, and video surveillance due to recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, sensors, and compute performance. But these vision systems still struggle with robustness and accuracy, especially in adverse conditions like low light and bad weather. Also, development teams cannot scale to the massive effort and investment needed to capture and annotate training data for each system configuration.
“Algolux has been deeply focused on improving safety for automotive ADAS systems, autonomous vehicles, and robots by addressing the inherent robustness and scalability limitations of today’s computer vision approaches,” said Allan Benchetrit, Algolux President and CEO. “We are honored to be recognized as an IDC Innovator for Computer Vision.”

About IDC Innovators Reports
IDC Innovators reports present a set of vendors – under $100M in revenue at time of selection — chosen by an IDC analyst within a specific market that offer an innovative new technology, a groundbreaking approach to an existing issue, and/or an interesting new business model. It is not an exhaustive evaluation of all companies in a segment or a comparative ranking of the companies. Vendors in the process of being acquired by a larger company may be included in the report provided the acquisition is not finalized at the time of publication of the report. Vendors funded by venture capital firms may also be included in the report even if the venture capital firm has a financial stake in the vendor’s company.
