What is computer vision?

Computer vision is the field of computer science that focuses on replicating parts of the complexity of the human vision system and enabling computers to identify and process objects in images and videos in the same way that humans do. Until recently, computer vision only worked in limited capacity. Thanks to advances in artificial intelligence and innovations in deep learning and neural networks, the field has been able to take great leaps in recent years and has been able to surpass humans in some tasks related to detecting and labeling objects.

Machine Learning In Warehouse Management

Machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, has already been used across many industries to improve efficiency and productivity. The technology has been in development for some time, with the uptake being slowed down by some industry’s reluctance to adopt it. However, it’s now being used by many businesses, including logistics companies and retailers seeking help for warehouse management.

Industrial Machine Learning: Where are We Now?

The rapid growth of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications is not only in the software domain. As the use of sensors in industrial applications becomes more mainstream, the large amount of data gathered can be used to train algorithms. This, in turn, results in rapid increases in efficiency.

In this article, chemical engineer and researcher Hermes Ribeiro Sant Anna gives an overview of how Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are used in industrial production facilities.
