Are you looking to optimize your operations and solve complex applications with AI? You are not alone. AI is the future of machine vision, but many companies don’t know how to get started with AI. In this session, Nagle, a machine vision specialist from Baumer, provides specific advice for how companies can get started with freely programmable smart cameras for AI applications, in collaboration with long-term partner and customer Event Capture Systems (ECS).

ECS, known for creating outstanding complex, camera-based quality control systems in paper mills, shares their journey with AI, the challenges they have faced over the past five years exploring with AI, and how they got started. Specifically, they discuss what it takes to get good data to make decisions on operations using the freely programmable VAX Smart Camera.
