Machine Learning and Lung Cancer Detection

: The Institute of Medicine at the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine reports that diagnostic errors contribute to approximately 10 percent of patient deaths and up to 17 percent of hospital complications. According to Xin Zhong, co-founder and CEO of Sigma Technologies, the traditional diagnostic approach often detects the cancer too late, leading to… Read More

Facial Recognition and Security

: Almost out of science fiction, facial recognition technology that identifies people and flags authorities if an individual is on a security watch-list has been gaining headlines. Real-time imaging systems integrating existing and new image sources, combined with facial recognition and artificial intelligence software, are used to track suspects, spot suspicious behaviors, and coordinate emergency services… Read More

Pleora Teams up with Local Robotics Clubs

: At Pleora, we think it’s pretty obvious that designing video interfaces for automated inspection, print verification, and microscopy represent the pinnacle of cool. ….anyone? Ok, maybe that’s just us. But do you know what is cool? Robots! That’s why Pleora was so excited to sponsor robotics clubs at two local Ottawa high schools. During quick… Read More

A Quick Primer on NBASE-T

: If you happen to visit Pleora at an upcoming trade show, you’ll notice our latest GigE Vision over NBASE-T embedded video interface is prominently featured. More complex image systems – with fully networked, high-resolution multi- source vision applications outputting millions of pixels of data for real-time processing – are quickly outpacing the capabilities of 1… Read More

Machine Vision and Situational Awareness

: A manufacturing floor and battlefield may seem worlds apart, but both rely on machine vision technology to speed decision making and provide deeper insight for automated processing and human intervention. In a local situational awareness (LSA) system for a military ground-based vehicle, for example, real-time video is transmitted to display panels for crew members to… Read More
