History of the Alliance

Inspiring and empowering innovators to add vision and AI to products since 2011

The Edge AI and Vision Alliance (formerly the Embedded Vision Alliance) was founded by and is led by Berkeley Design Technology, Inc. (BDTI), an independent technology analysis firm that has earned the trust and respect of system designers and technology providers since 1992. BDTI’s engineers and analysts have been working hands-on with computer vision technology for many years—evaluating processors, developing application solutions, and tracking trends. BDTI manages the Edge AI and Vision Alliance on behalf of the member companies.

In this video, Jeff Bier, President of BDTI, describes the creation of the Alliance in 2011 and predicts the future impact of practical computer vision technology in a diversity of systems and associated software.
