Cheap and ubiquitous cameras are changing everything.

The businesses that are able to leverage this low-cost information-rich data are at a unique competitive advantage. And thanks to rapid advances in deep learning, we’re able to do more with raw image and video data than ever before. However, building, deploying, and maintaining these algorithms is not easy. As the state-of-the-art rapidly advances, finding the right people with the necessary skills requires significant time and cost investments.
