The Edge AI and Vision Alliance and Woodside Capital Partners join forces to create the Embedded Vision and Visual AI Industry Map to revolutionize the way the industry finds partners, customers and suppliers.
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Edge AI and Vision Alliance (https://www.edge-ai-vision.com) and Woodside Capital Partners (https://www.woodsidecap.com) today announce the launch of a new free web-based tool, the Embedded Vision and Visual AI Industry Map, which provides a new way to visualize the market and for embedded vision professionals to efficiently identify prospective customers, suppliers and partners.
“Today, hundreds of companies are developing embedded vision and visual AI building-block technologies, such as processors, algorithms and camera modules—and thousands of companies are creating systems and solutions incorporating these technologies,” said Rudy Burger, Managing Director of Woodside Capital Partners. “With so many companies in the space, and new companies entering constantly, it has become difficult to find the companies that match a specific profile or need. We’ve created the Embedded Vision and Visual AI Industry Map to address this challenge.”
The Map is a free-to-use tool that provides an easy, efficient way to understand how hundreds of companies fit into the vision industry ecosystem. Interactive and visual, the Map displays companies within different layers of the vision value chain, and in specific end-application markets. The Map covers the entire embedded vision and visual AI value chain, from sub-components to complete systems.
“From our immersion in the embedded vision and visual AI industry over the past eight years, we know that the right company-to-company partnerships are essential,” said Jeff Bier, founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. “We’re excited to provide this Industry Map to help people efficiently find the companies they want to partner with—and to help companies make themselves more visible.”
