To coincide with AIA Vision Week, an online five-day event of speakers and industry product showcase, MVPro has rekindled the quickfire Q&A.
We have sought the opinions of presenters, businesses and sponsors on this new online conference format, how they have adapted to the format and also their views on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We will share a number of them across the week. Dany Longval, vice president worldwide sales at Teledyne Lumenera provides the answers.
Dany is opening the agenda on Thursday (10am ET) with his presentation Real World Challenges for AI in Vision Applications
What’s your take on the ‘virtual’ conference?
At a live conference there are always a few attendees that stick around at the end of the presentation to ask more focused questions in regards to their application. This is a great way for presenters to learn from attendees. Being live, on-site means that attendees have time to hang around, which I don’t think will be the case with a virtual event. However, saving time on travel is a big plus.
How have you adapted your presentation given it’s now online?
There’s really no change to the presentation, our content can be delivered equally well in both settings.
What will you be discussing in your AIA Vision Week presentation?
I will be discussing AI and its impact on the vision industry. My approach is to discuss the hands-on, practical side of an AI implementation rather that theoretical or the science of AI.
What presentations will you be tuning into and why?
Time is short, and so I’m not sure if I will have the opportunity. This is actually a great example of if I was on-site I would attend a few sessions for sure.
What will be the biggest impact of the COVID-19 crisis?
In the age of COVID-19, those who can adapt can do well, those that are set in their ways will struggle. The biggest impact is to get people to rethink their ways of doing business.
