WALNUT CREEK, Calif., June 25, 2014
SOURCE Embedded Vision AllianceThe Embedded Vision Alliance (www.Embedded-Vision.com) today announced that nearly 500 product creators attended the recent Embedded Vision Summit West to learn about the latest in computer vision technology from leading technologists. Members of the Embedded Vision Alliance were thrilled at the record attendance and at the keen interest in their technology from attendees.

The Embedded Vision Summit West 2015 was held on May 29 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Like previous Embedded Vision Summits, it was organized by the Embedded Vision Alliance to give engineers the practical information they need to design systems and applications that have the ability to see and understand. Chris Rowen, Fellow at Cadence Design Systems, an Embedded Vision Alliance Member company, observed, “Vision intelligence is becoming one of the primary interfaces for so many products—for the cloud, Internet of Things, and next-generation consumer products and mobile devices. The Summit is a wonderful convergence of so many different ideas, companies and trends. Not only is it a great place to catch up with what’s going on in computer vision, it’s become the place where people from other areas come to explore one of the grand challenges in semiconductors, system software, and design methodology.”

Attendees were impressed at the opportunities the Summit provided. Richard Neumann, founder of startup 2r1y, said, “We’ve made some amazing contacts here and I now see great opportunities for our company that I didn’t think existed when I got here this morning.”

Simon Morris, CEO of Alliance member CogniVue Corporation was unequivocal in his company’s support for the event, saying, “The Summit is one of the best places we can go to network with future customers and partners. In fact, half of the partners we have, we met at an Embedded Vision Summit. It’s really valuable as a focused event where we gain both partners and customers.”
The Alliance has also announced that the next Embedded Vision Summit will be held on April 30, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Planning is under way for an expanded conference program, with business, introductory technical, and advanced technical tracks. The 2015 Summit will also include a bigger Technology Showcase, with demos of computer vision technology by industry innovators, as well as exciting keynote presentations by leading technologists.

The Embedded Vision Summit is organized by the Embedded Vision Alliance, an industry partnership that brings together providers of the technology used to create practical applications of computer vision. Founded in May 2011, the Alliance currently has 37 Member companies worldwide. Membership is open to any company that supplies hardware, software, or design services for computer vision systems and applications.
