LDV Vision Summit 17 – 10 Questions for an Investor: KBS Ventures

There’s a definitive symbiosis between visual tech and digital marketing: Not only is vision the primary sense used when making a buying decision, it is also the most efficient in tracking and deciphering a consumer’s path to the critical buy impulse. While brands might not have yet adopted the rapid pace of evolution offered by the countless new start-ups in the field, advertising agencies and their investment arms have long known that it’s a battlefield with huge potential outcome. We spoke with Jessica Peltz-Zatulove – Partner…

LDV Vision Summit : 10 Questions for a Research Scientist @ Google

From automatically organizing personal photos, monitoring crops, medical diagnostic, driving cars, security monitoring, computer vision is always everywhere. Not surprising since we, as human beings, use vision as our primary tool to understand the world around us.  For a search engine like Google, it does make perfect sense to be one of the leaders in research. Ahead of her keynote address at the upcoming  2017 LDV Vision Summit, we spoke with Google Research Scientist Tali Dekel to learn more: A little bit about you. what is…

LDV Vision Summit : A recap

Tell me something I don’t know. Every year, this is the challenge raised by the LDV Vision Summit in front of an audience made of experts in their fields, scientists, researchers, founders, CEO’s, investors and pundits. And every year, the same reaction: Wow, I didn’t know that. The 2016 edition, which just closed a few days ago, did not disappoint. In a field where breakthroughs are seemingly far between, there is still room for anyone to discover research, studies, applications or companies that reveal yet another…

It’s coming! The Internet of Eyes will allow objects to see

In the near future, every inanimate object we interact with may not only have the ability to see, but could also improve our lives. In order for this visibility to happen, objects will need the assistance of visual sensors and cameras. Though hotly debated in privacy sectors, experts agree that dozens of tiny cameras and eventually nano cameras will soon be built into objects, providing devices the ability to see from every angle and in real time. As Serge Belongie, Professor of Computer Vision at…

10 Questions for a CMO: FLIR

There is more to the world around us than we can see. Much more. While we compensate for that lack of vision with our other senses, like touch or smell, machines do have this luxury. Thermal sensors, who can capture and render heat signatures, fill in this void and combined with advance imaging, deliver far deeper insight on our environment, even to humans.  We caught up with Travis Merill, CMO of FLIR, a global leader in  thermal imaging, who reveals how critical this technology has…

10 Questions for a 3D vision engineer : Gaile Gordon

Machine vision is partially blind. Of all the information a camera can capture, one essential part is always missing. Unlike popular belief, 3D capture is not about rendering a 3D environment but rather giving vision sensors the power to integrate depth, very much as our own eyes ( and brain) perform.  How we perceive and understand our world is very much influenced by our ability to integrate spatial dimension. Gaile Gordon, senior director of Technology at Enlighted, who has spent most of her career researching 3D…

10 Questions to a Professor : Lauren Walsh

Photography has experienced major shifts in the last half-century and is on the path to experience even more. Not only have our cameras evolved dramatically but how we consume images has exploded in multiple formats. And photojournalism has been in the eye of the storm. No longer do we view a few amount of carefully curated images selected by well-trained gatekeepers but instead thousands of unfiltered photos spread out throughout our various social media feeds.   How does photojournalism evolve ? What constitute an iconic photograph…

10 questions for a founder : Stupeflix

With all the talks about video becoming the number media on the internet, little is said about how much more complex it is than text or photos. The elements of motion and sound, as well as timing , file size or even rendering, have made mass market adoption slow, outside of live broadcasts. Stupeflix has already 3 apps on the market which have greatly simplified the process, including Replay an automated editing app. We sat down to talk with Nicola Steegman, founder of Stupeflix, after…
