Railway operators must conduct routine inspections and maintenance of tracks, trains, and other equipment to ensure the safe operation of railways. Through these inspection and maintenance activities, railway operators prevent service interruptions and, most importantly, reduce the chances of catastrophic railway accidents by resolving some of the most common causes of accidents, such as train and equipment failures, track defects, and other issues.
Healthcare facilities throughout the world are suffering from critical staff shortages, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made the situation worse. According to November 2020 statistics from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 18% of U.S. hospitals said that they were critically short on medical staff. Patient monitoring AI can dramatically improve the ability of hospitals and medical facilities to monitor situations.
Counting and identifying cells is a tedious and time-consuming process. In many cases, highly paid Ph.D. scientists perform these tasks in the fields of histology, immunology, oncology, and pharmaceutical research. Unfortunately, the painstaking process involves long hours of looking at samples under a microscope and manually counting each cell – even worse, traditional cell counting methods leave a lot to be desired in terms of accuracy.
The importance of defect detection in manufacturing cannot be overstated. Unsealed bottle caps, hairline cracks in pipes, painting errors, or any kind of broken, defective, or mislabeled product often has a negative impact on a manufacturer’s reputation and sales. Defects can also trigger costs related to finding, recalling, destroying, and replacing damaged goods – not to mention the ever-present risk of product liability lawsuits.
Large-scale industrial operations manage infrastructure networks spanning hundreds of miles. An energy company, for example, needs to maintain vast networks of electrical wires, distribution poles, transmission towers, electrical substations, and other critical assets. Because these assets are often located in remote and dangerous locations, inspecting them for maintenance issues demands high-risk expeditions, skilled labor, and an enormous amount of time and financial resources.
As computer vision is becoming increasingly sophisticated, it brings business benefits to a wide variety of industries. From defect detection to loss prevention, computer vision is a powerful tool with the potential to improve processes and results in many contexts. But before we dive into the use cases of computer vision, let’s define what it is.
Healthcare providers are increasingly challenged as they are tasked with doing more, faster, especially in times of crisis. Now, the confluence of GPUs and AI has generated a solution to meet these challenges. Video streams connected to Chooch AI on the NVIDIA Jetson platform can act as eyes, alongside microphones that can act as AI-enabled ears thanks to the NVIDIA Clara Guardian platform. The benefits include improved public safety, better patient care, and more operational efficiency at healthcare facilities.
This webinar is an overview of use cases for Visual AI. Presented by Emrah Gultekin, CEO of Chooch, we discuss how Visual AI can rapidly and cost effectively count, label, identify, log and track far more efficiently than humans.
