“Embedded Vision in Robotics, Biotech and Education,” an Interview with Dean Kamen

Dean Kamen, Founder of DEKA Research and Development, talks with Jeff Bier, Founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance, for the “Embedded Vision in Robotics, Biotech and Education” interview at the May 2023 Embedded Vision Summit.

In his 2018 keynote presentation at the Embedded Vision Summit, legendary inventor and technology visionary Dean Kamen memorably predicted that embedded vision capabilities would eventually become as common as limit switches—i.e., used universally to enable systems to understand their environments. In this on-stage conversation, Jeff Bier, Founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance, catches up with Kamen on how visual AI is currently being used in his projects.

These projects include mobile robots (developed by his company, DEKA Research and Development), new processes for the large-scale manufacturing of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies (led by Kamen’s Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute) and the educational programs organized by the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) program. Kamen and Bier explore where visual AI is paying off as Kamen envisioned, and what challenges are limiting his projects from realizing its full potential.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
