You cannot choose the family you are born into, but…
The next exciting discovery on our Wundernova Tour is Uncanny Vision – a technology company based in Bangalore focused on Computer Vision and Embedded systems.
Computer vision means basically “extracting information out of an image as a medium“. A good example for this kind of technology might be the ability of recognizing and tagging people’s faces on social media. Computer vision offers a large scale of practical application ranging from easy edge detection to very advanced face detection, object tracking and even real time image recognition.
The team around Uncanny Vision has over 25 years of experience in the technology area, most especially in developing software toolkits for increasing the performance of the computer vision algorithms multifold. Vision algorithms are very compute intensive and unlike other compute intensive tasks of earlier days like graphics and video codecs, they usually don’t have a dedicated engine inside the processors to accelerate them.
Ranjith Parakkal, the CEO of Uncanny Vision explains some of the many exciting ways of using computer vision, which surely will become increasingly important in our daily life.
