Deep learning enables machine vision solutions for applications where defects or inspection criteria cannot be easily quantified or mathematically defined. It offers machine vision designers a powerful new tool for advanced inspection, assembly, and quality assurance applications because the software essentially helps the designer develop the best possible algorithm. But until recently, creating deep learning software required traditional programming skills, preferably combined with a strong grounding in statistics and traditional machine vision system design.
Today, thanks to deep learning – enabled smart cameras, gateways and application-specific coding, deep learning for the masses may be a few clicks away. Full Article

Manufacturing quality control practices have long relied on visual inspection. Of course, visual inspection of products rolling off the production line is important. Visual inspections are also used for internal and external assessments of equipment including storage tanks, pressure vessels and piping. Full Article

To slow the spreading of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), many people around the world have turned to machine vision and imaging technologies. Some of these may prove more effective than others.
Before diving into some of the technology used recently for recognizing or diagnosing sick people and reducing airborne virus particles, remember that many machine vision systems currently inspect, identify, gauge, or guide products like ventilators, respirators, and protective gear. Such products assist in treating patients and protecting healthcare professionals and in turn, further spreading of the virus. (Full Article)
