I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling over the past six weeks, meeting with clients, prospects, partners and industry leaders. Through my conversations, I’m hearing a common challenge weighing heavy on the minds of many business leaders: Talent. Or perhaps more accurately, the lack thereof. One leader I spoke to has an approved budget to hire the expertise needed, but can’t seem to find the right mix of engineering expertise and creative-thinking.
“Culture isn’t ONE aspect of the game – it is THE game. In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.” - Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., former CEO of IBM and author of Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance. In order to create new value for a company and its clients – it’s essential to design and perpetually optimize an environment that attracts top talent, promotes collaboration, and enables inspiration and creativity.
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, California, which focuses on the latest developments in the relatively new field of embedded vision. The Summit is a three-day event for innovators who want to integrate visual intelligence into products. This year, the theme focused on deployable computer vision and its use of deep learning technology. Embedded vision, or the use of computer vision in machines, has been revolutionized by deep learning over the last three years.
With the development of mobile, cloud and security technologies, the internet of things (IoT) has become a mega trend that we believe needs to be applied in every industry. Many experts have even named IoT as the next Industrial Revolution. I recently wrote an article for Forbes highlighting the IoT trends that we believe will gain momentum this year.
