In this webinar we go beyond the barcode to talk about machine vision and machine learning (ML) with Edge IoT- the combination of edge computing and IoT technology- which is used to prevent “missing in action” items in inventory, intercept shipments before heading to the wrong destination, automate parts picking and more, while creating instantaneous communication among the manufacturing floor and related systems. We’ll discuss ML basics, how vision ML is being used in manufacturing, and tips to getting started. Hint: no barcode or vision expertise required! Hear from experts from ADLINK Technology, the leaders in edge computing and Amazon Web Services, the leaders in cloud computing to learn how easy it is when the two come together for vision-based manufacturing initiatives.

Some topics we’ll cover:

  • Edge IoT for vision ML basics & tips: what is it, how does it work, why at the “edge”
  • Different ways vision ML is being used in manufacturing including smart pallets, automated parts picking, anomaly detection, robotics and more
  • Tips to getting started and best practices
