ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
There has been significant ongoing interest in machine vision applications where artificial intelligence (AI) tools and techniques play a key role in the solution implementation. This non-commercial webcast will provide an up-to-date perspective on the use of AI specifically for machine vision including tasks in inspection, guidance, and more. It will discuss some of the ways AI is successfully implemented along with the related challenges, and in addition provide a practical overview of the use of AI in machine vision and how it fits in with other machine vision tools.
We will look at what the future holds for this technology in machine vision, and provide real-world application examples. This webinar will be of interest to anyone considering the implementation of machine vision using AI in an industrial/manufacturing setting.
