Emerging Tech SIG: Trends in Visual Intelligence
Title: Trends in Visual Intelligence
Bio: Gerry Pesavento is the CEO and Co-Founder of IQ Engines (www.iqengines.com <http://www.iqengines.com>), a company that has built an image recognition engine. Previously he was CEO of Teknovus (acquired by Broadcom) and CEO Alloptic (acquired by CDTI). He holds a BSEE from RPI, and an MBA from UC Berkeley.
Abstract: Nearly every mobile device has a camera, resulting in one billion photos taken every day. Equally fascinating is that the mobile camera is evolving to an "intelligent visual sensor" to power mobile visual search, vision for the blind, photo labeling and augmented reality. The technology driving these use cases is image intelligence; the ability to robustly recognize objects and scenes. New architectures combing computer vision and human crowd-sourcing as a learning engine have emerged showing promise of an any-image recognition technology.
