X-Ray Moves into New Markets

: Most of us associate X-rays with a trip to the hospital or dentist, but the medical market represents only a portion of applications that are driving the growing global demand for systems and flat panel detector (FPD) technologies. Depending on the report you read, the global X-ray systems market could grow from US$10-11 billion today… Read More

Embedded Learning and Machine Vision

: Pleora CTO Jonathan Hou was a recent guest of Quality Magazine as part of their webinar series on future advancements in the vision industry. Perhaps one of the largest influencers on the future of machine vision is machine learning, the branch of artificial intelligence that is concentrating and developing the idea that a complex system–like… Read More

Fishing with Machine Vision

: Two Netherlands-based companies developed an automated inspection system that sorts shrimp for consumption and returns other fish unharmed back into the ocean. According to Seeker, without fundamental restructuring of the fishing industry, the oceans could become empty of fish by 2050. Modern technological advances can contribute enormously to sustainable use of natural resources. The vacuum… Read More

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
