Invision will pilot a video-based safety system in the engine room of large commercial vessels. The system will monitor safety and environmentally critical equipment, alerting the bridge and land-based staff in the event of unauthorized or unsafe maintenance procedures. Being entirely edge-based means that the system operates reliability despite the intermittent connectivity often experienced at sea. Lloyd’s, founded in 1760 and is the largest maritime insurer in the world, established the safety accelerator to test and help drive adoption of new technologies across its sixty-five thousand member organizations.
Karim Ali will be part of live discussions on smart cities in partnership with the Ontario Center for Excellence and the Canadian International Autoshow. Live discussions will take place February 15-24 with Karim’s discussion on Monday February 18th at 7pm EST.

The top innovation hubs in Toronto got together to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship in the spaces through a magazine. Wired Different is a collaboration between Mars Discovery District, OneEleven, and our current home, The DMZ at Ryerson. Take a look at the inaugural magazine, and find our feature on AI in edge devices in “Mindful Machines“.
Invision AI is speaking on January 8th, 2019 at Connect2Car organized by SAE International and the Consumer Technology Association. The topic is Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, more specifically: data drives business, but what pieces of data really make a difference in today’s environment and on which do we base decisions? Do we really need all the data and are we smart enough to know which pieces to choose? We will also be exhibiting at the GENIVI CES2019 Networking Event in the evening of January 8th, 2019.
Invision.ai has been awarded a grant to test its vehicle occupancy detection system. The system is designed to automate enforcement and collection on new High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes. Roadside units will house multi-band infrared cameras linked to Invision’s ultra-efficient deep learning technology, and will be able to deliver accurate results across a wide variety of environmental conditions. The award was granted by the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), as part of the Small Business Innovation Challenge (SBIC). Invision will work closely with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) to optimize the system for the challenging highway environment.
Many thanks to MEMS Journal for inviting us to present at the 2017 Automotive Sensors and Electronics Conference. We don’t believe the marketing hype that training a deep neural network running on an automotive supercomputer will deliver reliable, safe, mainstream autonomous vehicles. So we presented the counter case: pushing intelligence to the sensors and fusing classifiers, not raw data, on a substantially less powerful central ECU. Rather than cries of heresy from the audience of OEM and tier supplier engineers we got nods of agreement as they had largely reached the same conclusions. All of the presentations from the conference are available here, lots of useful insight.
Invision.ai joins founders from around the world June 19-23 in the Waterloo Region as part of the Google for Entrepreneurs Exchange program. The focus of the program will be: ‘Building and Connecting the Best Data-Driven and A.I. Led Startups.’
AI With The Best third edition is a two-day online conference tailored for developers wanting to strengthen their AI tech skills, get insights from the gurus of the AI universe applying the technology, and enjoy an interactive, empowering experience while connecting with AI developer peers from all over the world.
