|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
We’re announcing a significant expansion of the Embedded Vision Alliance to encompass the full range of edge AI technology and applications, including our traditional domain of computer vision and visual AI. To better reflect our new scope, we’re changing our name to the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. We’ve even got a shiny new website. And, as you may have already noticed, the name of this newsletter has also been updated to reflect our expansion.
We are seeing the same challenges in edge AI today that we saw in computer vision almost a decade ago. Then, as now, a powerful new technology had become ready for widespread use, but the companies and developers creating systems and applications were struggling to figure out how to best incorporate it into their products. And then, as now, technology suppliers needed data and insights to help them find their best opportunities, as well as connections to customers and partners to enable them to grow their businesses.
Rest assured that our fundamental purpose remains the same: inspiring and empowering the individuals and companies creating intelligent systems and applications; building a vibrant ecosystem by bringing together technology suppliers, end-product creators, and partners; and delivering timely insights into relevant markets, technology trends, standards and application requirements. The difference is that our mission now includes not just vision but the full range of edge AI technologies and applications.
We’re proud of the work we¹ve done since 2011 to bring news, trends, and resources in computer vision and visual AI to engineers, innovators, and business leaders. Now we’re looking forward to expanding that to include the full range of edge AI technologies and applications. For more information, check out our press release; stay tuned for more developments in the months ahead. In the meantime, I’d be delighted to hear any thoughts or answer any questions you might have. And please be sure to add edge-ai-vision.com to your safe sender list to get important updates and information, including our weekly newsletters.
