eyeSight Joins the SAMSUNG ARTIK™ Platform Ecosystem to Bring Computer Vision Capabilities to IoT

With eyeSight's Embedded Technology, SAMSUNG ARTIK Developers Are Enabled With Enhanced Touch-Free Interactions With Integrated Cameras Creating More Personalized User Experiences for IoT

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) -  Samsung Developers Conference, eyeSight technologies, a leading provider of embedded machine vision sensing and embedded deep learning solutions, has today announced it will be joining the SAMSUNG ARTIK platform to bring advanced touch-free and user awareness capabilities for the IoT.

At the Samsung Developers Conference taking place April 27-28th, the company will showcase its computer vision and deep learning technology for IoT applications running locally on the SAMSUNG ARTIK 10 module, without the need for cloud processing. The company will demonstrate convenient touch-free home control with the Philips Hue smart lights using only subtle movements of the finger to change the lighting scenes. As part of its showcase eyeSight will also exhibit user awareness capabilities which deliver personalized experiences with IoT applications based on the number of users in sight, the gender, and age.

Embedding computer vision on ARTIK modules allows eyeSight to locally apply deep learning to deliver personalized IoT experiences in a fully private manner, without any pictures or videos leaving the device, thus shielding user privacy as much as possible.

"Because of the processing power of ARTIK, we are excited to see breakthrough building blocks like on-device computer vision capabilities brought to the developer community," said Curtis Sasaki, vice president of Ecosystems, Samsung Electronics. "eyeSight's unique offerings will enable SAMSUNG ARTIK customers to develop and deploy new and innovative use cases across IoT environments, spanning connected homes, retail, IoT hubs and more. We're very excited to see the new applications that developers will create using this joint technology offering."

Being a part of the SAMSUNG ARTIK IoT ecosystem provides eyeSight the opportunity to power natural user interactions in countless IoT solutions, stretching beyond its own IoT and home-control device called singlecue, which brings gesture control to the devices in the home.
