Welcome to The Great Camera Awakening — the consumerization of advanced computer vision: the creation of platforms, software and services where the Camera comes to the forefront of user experience, and creates a bridge for the digital and physical world to co-exist.

This “Great Camera Awakening” creates vast opportunities for entrepreneurs and developers to build computer vision applications that span from autonomous vehicles and consumer robotics to AR face filters, in industries as broad as manufacturing and agriculture to medicine, and on devices as simple as mobile phones or as advanced as the fully featured Augmented Reality headsets of the future. The time is now! Welcome to the #camerafirst future.
