January 25, 2022
The Omdena “Impact Tech Startups Series” is comprised of game-changing startups. stories, and thought-leadership pieces from leading impact ventures solving real-world problems.
AI for Good is a term you might be very familiar with but what about Computer Vision for Good?
Computer vision is a subset of artificial intelligence that is able to utilize computer algorithms to filter through visual data. Digital images in the form of videos and pictures are constantly being added to the online data pool. Machines that are properly coded can accurately assess what they are looking at.
As the interest in computer vision grows, investors have started to actively participate in the growth of a variety of companies in this sector. Well-known investors and programs in computer vision companies include Deep Learning Techstars, Venture Kick, and Y Combinator.
While there is a wave of billion-dollar computer vision startups is coming, however, in this article, we do not want to celebrate funding rounds but what Computer Vision startups are on a mission to solve social, environmental, and health-related problems to create a positive impact.
How Computer Vision Startups Can Help Build A Brighter Future
Computer vision has applications in a variety of sectors including agriculture, health, energy, climate change, autonomous driving, safety, MedTech, and more. AI is meant for Good, and if machines can help us to see and decode data, then aspects of operations such as quality control and medical diagnoses will have reduced errors.
Computer vision startups have successfully managed to utilize the power of AI in order to solve real-world problems across a wide spectrum of our existence.
