Plainsight Shares Insights with Interviews and Conference Presentations

Since the early days of 2022, Plainsight’s leaders have been sharing their expertise and extolling the immense value of both computer vision itself and Plainsight’s unique approach to customer engagements. Here are just a few of the opportunities our team had to join other thought leaders in conversation. 

  • All the way back in January, our Co-Founder and CEO, Carlos Anchia, predicted some tech trends that would come to define 2022 in an article with TechRound. How did he do
  • Enthusiasm over AI often leaves organizations lacking when it comes to their full understanding of tech’s ethical implications. Elizabeth Spears, Plainsight Co-Founder and CPO, spoke to ClickAI Radio about how enterprises can avoid common ethical pitfalls
  • Carlos made another podcast appearance in March, speaking with JP Valentine of the Alldus AI in Action series. Together, they discussed what makes Plainsight special and what makes computer vision such appealing and potentially transformative technology. 

This fall, AI experts from across the globe came together to host more than 150 informative sessions at Google Cloud Next. In a session titled Deliver next generation business insights with computer vision applications, Carlos joined several co-panelists—including Google Cloud Product Managers, Nelson Gonzales and Fabien blanc-paques—in advocating for the immense potential of enterprise vision AI.

Computer Vision Drives Industries into the Future

Across industries, forward-looking companies already know that computer vision is the way to address everyday challenges and see the future of their business. 

  • Restaurants are leveraging computer vision to create smarter, cleaner, more efficient kitchens with models for maintaining order accuracy, enforcing health standards, and more. 
  • With models for detecting pests, assessing soil quality, and optimizing the quality and quantity of yields, agribusinesses count on computer vision to keep them resilient to changing market and climate conditions.
  • In a new omnichannel retail marketplace, computer vision has proven vital for helping retailers manage periods of high demand and generate insights to provide a higher quality of service excellence. 

Game-Changing Insights with Vision AI 

On and off the field, computer vision promises to change the world of sports. This year, Plainsight covered innovations affecting players, fans, referees, and more. 

Making Sustainable Industry a Reality

Business leaders are more or less united in the conviction that AI will prove vital in the ongoing fight against climate change and its myriad impacts. This year, computer vision played a bigger role than ever. 

  • Despite its name, the Inflation Reduction Act was most often discussed with respect to its funds and mandates for fighting climate change. The bill not only incentivized businesses to make their operations more sustainable, but also empowered the Environmental Protection Agency to impose new fines. Energy providers can stay ahead of new regulations and proactively reduce their emissions with computer vision models for leak detection.
  • The growing Blue Economy focuses on developing more sustainable methods for leveraging sea and freshwater resources. In sectors like marine energy and aquaculture, computer vision is already helping make sustainable goals a reality with models for monitoring and managing vulnerable underwater populations. 
  • In certain parts of the United States, wildfires have become so severe and numerous that they’re both a result of climate change and a contributor to climate change. Historical approaches to tracking and mitigating these blazes have been largely manual and subject to human error and inefficiency. Computer vision is changing things, making it easier than ever to spot warning signs and automate a strategic response before fires grow out of control.
