Z Advanced Computing: Giving New Eyes to Computer Vision Systems

It has been a major challenge for computer vision systems to recognize three dimensional (3D) objects. Be it automation on an assembly line or medical diagnosis, the applications of 3D object recognition spread across various industries and areas in our daily lives. To overcome this challenge, Maryland based Z Advanced Computing has come up with an innovative technology using AI and Machine Learning to provide computer vision systems with an ability to recognize such 3D objects from any view or angle.

The General-AI platform of the company enables accurate and fast recognition which can be a breakthrough for many innovations such as autonomous cars, big data analytics from IOT devices and military intelligence. The company boasts of a stellar team of scientists and developers and has a portfolio of 11 US issued patents and 450 inventions, which clearly speaks about the intellectual prowess and strong technical background of the team members. The company has raised funds from the State of Maryland (TEDCO).

" With our superior approach, complex 3D objects can be recognized from any direction, using only a small number of training samples, based on our General-AI platform." Dr. Saied Tadayon, CTO of ZAC.
" You cannot do this with the Specific-AI techniques, such as Deep Neural Networks, even with an extremely large number of training samples. That's basically hitting the limits of the Specific-AI techniques." Dr. Bijan Tadayon, CEO of ZAC.
