“Lessons Learned in Developing a High-volume, Vision-enabled Coffee Maker,” an Interview with Keurig Dr Pepper

Jason Lavene, Director of Advanced Development Engineering at Keurig Dr Pepper, talks with Jeff Bier, Founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance, for the “Lessons Learned in Developing a High-volume, Vision-enabled Coffee Maker” interview at the May 2023 Embedded Vision Summit.

Why did Keurig Dr Pepper—a $12B beverage company—spend years perfecting visual AI technology to recognize the type of beverages consumers are preparing in their Keurig brewers? Does computer vision really yield better coffee? What does it take to make sophisticated AI technology invisible to consumers?

What were the key challenges in delivering one of the first successful mass-market consumer products incorporating visual AI? What were the key skills required for the in-house product development team, and what could be outsourced? Bier interviews Lavene for insights into key lessons learned from this pioneering product development effort.

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.
